New counter weight

A while ago I added about 1 ounce of BB’s to the output jack of the telecaster to help offset the neck dive. I just upgraded to a 2.25 ounce weight by using washers! They are steel washers, 5/32″ ID, 7/8″ OD. 14 of them plus two similar size rubber washers, one on each end of the stack. They are rubber cemented together into a column and the cable for the output jack runs right through. I should have taken a picture or three, but I was so excited to get it together I forgot.  I still have a little dive, but it’s better. I think a lighter neck and tuners will be the only real fix.
