    Sorry, I mean the Mo Joe.

    The PAF Pro begat the FRED which begat the PAF Joe? Does the Tone Zone factor in at all or is that from a different branch entirely?

    That is a great read.

    You can put the FRED in just about any 25.5" scale guitar. A Strat with an Alder body will be ideal IMO. The Fred has quite a fat mid-mid tone, so could be too much if you have a already warm, or fat sounding guitar. IMO its better to put it in a balanced or semi-bright guitar and turn down the tone control if needed. It requires 500k tone, and 500k volume.

    You need to adjust the height so its just high enough to loose any shrillness on the top end. I wouldn't recommend matching it with single coils, as they will be completely different in tone and output. HH or HSH config is the way to go with the FRED.

    Fred Fred Fred....Ahhh, Fred.
    For traditional old Tele players who finally summon up the courage to 'Cross the Big Muddy' into HB land...
    Fred is like a home away from home.
    It's like staying with related family when you're out-of-state.
    Strange and different...yet somehow familiar at the same time.
    Something about those unbalanced coils with a reasonable wind.
    If you're not going to Floyd it...Put it in a Telecaster w/ 500k pots.
    And when you play it, just remember The Big Muddy, and you've got it.

    Internet lore will tell you basswood. I'll tell you a guitar that you already have and dislike the bridge pickup
