UPDATE 12/10/2022:

I really need:

1. Three blend knobs for a Mark II Stringmaster.

EDIT: Found some. See below in thread source.

2. A Mark II T8 control plate with bridge, bridge screws, bridge springs, and knife switch slot & toggle switch hole like this one:




(I could make a D8 control plate with a knife switch slot work or a Mark II T8 plate with three holes for push-buttons)

3. Three Mark II bridge covers.

4. One Mark I bridge cover that screws on.

5. A pair of Mark II black plastic pickup covers.


I am now good on tuner trays and tuners.

Thanks!

Also need a '53 bridge, connecting rod nuts, and a '53 bridge cover.

What else do you have?

I am still looking for Stringmaster parts. Do not need any more necks.

What do you have lying around?

That bridge cover won't fit a '53.
That takes a cover that screws down.

It's not for a '53. Everything is under control.

Hi Tony,

This guy on Ebay has vintage Fender steel parts. He buys old steels, then takes them apart. I'm not a fan of that at all.

He does not take any messages and his feedback is not 100%. He has had some unhappy customers so please proceed with great caution!

Thanks! I am aware of Mike and he does not have the plate I need.

I got a good blend control from StewMac. I used it on my modified Fender pedal steel for a second pickup. Sweetwater also has them.

K Maul,

I am actually looking for the little wheel that spins the blend pot:




I found a seller who makes them:

https://www.armadilloguitar.com/product/pickup-blender-knob-for-50s-era-fender-stringmasters/

I just ordered 3 of them.


Thanks!

I was trying to remember this dealer. I bought one of these from him quite a while back. Good job!
