I agree, kinda looks like some of louis' work ( lavarkadoz on ebay). but then again it could be a real vintage blackguard. This is why more info and pics are needed.

Sometimes when I look at these, I think.....hmmmmm. You CAN make 'em look real as real, but you just cant fake the feel of 50 something year old paint......... can ya??? now is it just me fooling me? can anybody else feel a difference between a paint job on a modern, finely executed *RELIC*(don't matter if ya like 'em or not, don't go there, just answer the question , please) and a genuine 55 year old Fender Telecaster.

Cause this is a really nice looking
instrument! tell it.

So uh who did the work? Looks great to me. I'm working on a blackguard relic and a '62 sunburst strat style. That neck and fretboard looks better than most I've seen.

*** excellent! That's exceptional Albert King territory, SIR! Tastefully, well executed. KILLER TONE! Smooth band, too. Y'all probably do a lot of stuff I like, too. That is a smokin little tele ya slipped up on.

I enjoyed that as much as if I'd seen it live, in person.

That board ain't scalloped right?
It looks like it has been, but I guess it's time and hard work that has made it's mark.
Real nice anyway, wish it was mine!

I guess that several folks have tried to say it "nicely", without asking directly.

And congratulations to you, raulsue, for managing to deliberately avoid answering the questions that all of us are asking - opting instead for those teasing little responses that say nothing but keep folks hanging on!...

OK - I'll play. But I'm gonna ask you directly this time.... Here we go.....

Nice looking Tele, raulsue! So - tell us all about it! What exactly do you have there? Year, specs, details, etc.

Thanks!...

Great looking and sounding guitar raulsue .

And you don't do shame on Albert either - I've seen him live and your playing is very authentic.

Excellent Albert King tone. And nice playing too.

That's my kind of music...

Oh... that's my kind of guitar too... just a bit too old looking on the neck, but that's just me. I used to play only rosewood necks before switching to Teles. So I have to adapt to the look of the maple necks.

wow! you crazy tele players are a relentless bunch in your quest for the truth! you fellas are pit bulls ..go straight for the neck and dont let go! yeeeoooow...

ok...you see my tele ...youve heard the tele ...but your still not statisfied!
u have me virtually on the floor twisting my arm off for the most critical and juciest bit of info.....
but if i reveal it..will you still respect me in the morning? i feel like im on a date! lol if i give it all up on the first date you wont call me the next day!....lol

heres how i feel about this tele of mine.......imagine if you just met 2 smoking hot chicks and they say..."we want you now! come to our place now"......are you gonna shag them? or are you gonna sit there say well are your boobs real?... how old are you? ....ect ect
me....im gonna shag the living daylights out of them real or not!

so here it is gentlemen the boobs are fake!

its a hand built replica of a 53 tele! aha the truth is revealed! these are meticulusly built in extremely limited supply built by kelton swade,,,,,
i bought her from my good friends jim and gennieneen over at
http://www.route66classicguitars.com/



Jim brought it to my show and had me play it... and i couldnt help it i had to have it... they run 3000 us dollars...but gentlemen it puts the fender customshop to shame in look ...feel and tone........
the proof is in the pudding thats why i wanted you to see and hear it first..

well there she is fellas the truth my tele is a replica of a 53
and like the hot girls with the fake boobs....i say who care if they are real or not!

It is a beautiful guitar & sounds great - not to mention the owner is a great player.

I don't care if its "authentic" or not, ' cause like I said: "I don't know what she is, but she sure sound good!"

Awesome! Thanks for the info & keep crankin' on that tele!
