THIS IS OUR TAKE ON PRINCE’S INFAMOUS MAD CAT TELECASTER.
Comprises of both scratchplate & bridge plate.
We’ve worked very closely with aficionados of the original design & are delighted to offer two options of our matching plate set which replicates Prince’s iconic H. S. Anderson:
1. TRANSPARENT – Features our printed multi-toned black leopard image with a transparent background, so when mounted the plates let the wood show through – suitable for any models with no pickup wiring routs such as the Hohner The Prinz.
2. OPAQUE -Features our printed multi-toned black leopard image with an opaque beige coloured background to replicate the colour of the wood of your guitar to hide any nick pickup routing – suitable for any models with pickup wiring routs including the Harley Benton TE-80.
Typically there are many many many flavours of Teles that sport Mad Cat plates – including various editions of both the Hohners & Harley Bentons which all have slightly different shapes depending upon year of manufacture, but don’t let that worry you as we have a number of templates on file, so please include a message in the ‘Notes’ field in the shopping cart (it’s underneath the Delivery Address if you can’t spot it immediately) detailing which make, model & year of manufacture your Tele is AND if you require a clear or opaque plates.
If all appeals then please place your order including that all-important description of exactly which Tele you have & we’ll Email you a PDF template & visual for you to print & double-check all fits exactly as it should – so please keep an eye out in your Spam/Junk folder if nothing arrives from us within a day or two – & if it turns out that we don’t already have your particular Tele template on file we’ll ask you for a scan of your original plates please, as we can match to these to ensure a perfect fit – this should be relatively straight-forward as the plates ‘simply’ screw off the body & will easily fit on an A4 scanner. Simply scan as a colour/greyscale hi-resolution photograph (300dpi) with the BACK of the plates touching the glass (don’t worry – we’ll digitally flip them) & ensure there’s a contrasting coloured background so we can clearly see all the edges of the plates & Email us your JPEG scans to email@example.com & we’ll do all the rest – but don’t stress at this stage because we’ll confirm all of this once we know which particular flavour of Tele you have.
All our plate prices include Signed For Royal Mail delivery directly to your UK door – if you’re abroad then fully insured and tracked worldwide shipping can be selected in the cart for £12.99 once you’ve placed your order – and come complete with brand spanking new mount screws, but if you don’t need them save yourself a couple of quid by using the voucher code ‘SCREW-YOU’ in the cart when you finalise your order 😉
To ensure 100% happiness we ALWAYS Email a hi-res PDF visual & template to check for accurate fit – so please ensure you check your Emails regularly & keep an eye on your Spam/Junk folder as we always wait for your confirmation that all fits as it should before commencing production of your plates.
IF NONE OF THIS MAKES SENSE, SIMPLY DROP US A LINE AND WE’LL RUN THROUGH EVERYTHING WITH YOU – LIFE’S TOO SHORT NOT TO SCRATCH-IT!
