I'm an older guy, played professionally for many years and then then only off and on for the past 20 years or so. I'm an old style blues/rock lover...can't seem to shake it....
Sold most of my old gear (1970 Les Paul Custom and more), and recently lent a Mexican strat and P bass to a friend up north, leaving me with a semi- butchered pre-serial number Les Paul junior and a DIY tele of sorts.
The tele, if you call it that, is a homemade job. I taught a cnc course a few years back and we reverse engineered the body from an early 60's tele. I ended up cutting one out of solid mahogany, bought a mighty m maple neck, all gold hardware (stewmac) and a pair of SD P90-2's.
I just rewired it for some interesting sounds, including settings that combine the 2 single coil pu's into one giant humbucker, including series/parallel and in and out of phase modes.
Just love the sounds from it, even if it isn't an actual true tele.
Here's a picture of it if anyone is interested.
I'm really liking how this baby plays and sounds....super low action and sounds sweet thru a little Cube 40 xl
I look forward to checking out what everyone here is up to...!!
