Sorry, I couldn't resist. It was just nice to see someone else flunk out of Tele Rehab, besides me. :shock:

I don't want to be an enabler but you really do need a bound Telecaster...:wink:

This is what I have inbound...

http://i51.photobucket.com/albums/f399/Csapo/rustler_1-500pix.jpg

Bound ones... I have a CIJ 62RI, AM Deluxe, AM Player's Deluxe '52, and a J5 Triple Deluxe. I would really like that AV62, but I'm fighting it!

Great score on your's!

Thanks very much. It was listed recently on Ebay and didn't sell. I contacted the seller after the auction ended and asked if he would be relisting or would he accept an offer. He accepted my offer!!!!!

Barnes - it is by Rustler Guitars, from Iowa. Not in business anymore and hard to find info about it.

Jellecaster - If you are looking for an AV'62RI, wait for one of these Thin Skins...

Ltd. Am. Vintage '62 Telecaster Custom Lake Placid Blue
Ltd. Am. Vintage '62 Telecaster Custom Fiesta Red
Ltd. Am. Vintage '62 Telecaster Custom Sea Foam Green
Ltd. Am. Vintage '62 Telecaster Custom Sherwood Green
Ltd. Am. Vintage '62 Telecaster Custom 2 Tone Sunburst - OK, this one has already been released.

This is according to the Fender ad in the recent issue of Vintage Guitar magazine.

Oh my.....bound Fiesta Red, bound Lake Placid Blue, bound Sherwood Green....I'm holding out for one of these!!!!!

2004 - '52 Reissue

Nicely used, fast fat neck, all the initial dings taken care of. I got iT for a really good price since it had a hum because the neck shield wasn't grounded. I fixed that and also shielded the cavities its very quiet now. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna keep it for a long time.

Gave a modded Squier Tele Special away to a non-member, but bought a second Desert Sand Baja Tele, barely used, very light, nice big neck, seems to have Guitarpartsresource slant compensated saddles; had to fix the S-1 button, stripped control panel attachment screws, good news is the pups and electrics are unmolested, it might bump the other Baja back a spot once it is all set up.

Hey, I just figured out someone swapped out the custom shop neck plate on this second one. I guess I really don't care, better that than bogus pups.

No, I am pretty sure the count was correct because one of the members accidentally added 100 guitars in his addition back then, but this was actually corrected earlier.

To check, I have just been back through to June and have followed the count through again, and the 2789 number should have been correct.:wink:

the correct count should be 2791 now, I believe.:cool:

2939 +1 = 2940.

Two tone sunburst MIM 2004 Esquire, used but as new stock condition, very comely looks like two but a 2 inch piece off to the side three piecer. Actually, looks like one piece from five feet.

Yeah, it is only $ 200 under retail, but it is, Scout's Honor, nicer than the last three 'new' ones in the stores I've seen. All it needs is a new set of D'Ad 11-49s, but it is liable to get a new bridgeplate, definitely new brass comp'd saddles and an electrosocket.

Bubba's gonna do some serious hours on these vintage frets, and see if he likes them enough to buy a few Warmoths like this, or maybe 7.25 radius and bigger frets is this does not quite work out.Edit: He likes 'em, he does.

1999 MIM 69 Thinline Reissue, 3 tone sunburst, great ash matching, lightest Tele I have, 3 brass comp'd saddles and SD STK-Tsb in bridge, 2 ply Allparts pearloid pickguard, wearfree body, neck and fretwork, plastic still on the pickguard, but the saddle hardware and pickguard screws were screwed, huh?
Acid sweat, I spose.
Actually, no sweat for me, $ 320 plus tax, sheesch.
Had to replace the knobs and a tuner bush out the toolbox, and went to a size of ferrule that wouldn't fall out. That gave me a new set of ferrules that are a perfect fit on a new Warmoth Tele ash body in a light mahogany tint nitro which had no fitting ferrules. Everybody happy. Except the neck pickup. It's ok, but it sounds real weak out of phase, so it goes away.

3009 + 1 = 3010.

I've since stuck a set of Keystones on it, plus a Warmoth 1 + 11/16ths Fatback maple birdseye. Way better, '69 neck too small, frets all beat up.

3064 + 2 = 3066.

Two more Highway Ones at $ 388.60, this time both Teles. Trans-wine 2006, neck date September 2006, body date August 2006; 3 tone sunburst over 4 piece alder sunburst 2005. The sunburst is a factory mule. It has the old pickups and frets, but it also has the greasebucket. Cool.

This wine, my second at $ 388, is killer with the Keystones. The first wine still has the stock pups and is bleah. The Keystoned one has the Bill Lawrence 5 way switch plan available at this website, .010 cap on that lead on the switch.
