    I haven't had a chance to play it through my 'good' amp, but it sounds pretty good through my frontman 15. Had to do some adjustment on the bridge saddles (they were all bottomed out on the bridge smh...), but it plays really well now. A bit slimmer profile neck than I'm used to, but pretty nice.

    Good advice! Lol

    I understand the "if a fella gets what he wants, it's all good" philosophy, but... o_O

    That dude gave away a guitar that's worth more than the guitar he KEPT...

    Ah, my misunderstanding, sorry. It may still be a reasonable deal though, it depends on the pickup cost obviously.

    They'd have to be pretty expensive pickups not to come out ahead on that deal!

    He wants a set of SD Quarter Pounders, so ~$125

    Here's what the bridge on yours is supposed to look like just in case you want to take it back to what it was. Mines just the same, just a CAR version.

    So, I got to play it through my HR DeVille last night. Not terribly impressed with the humbucker, despite it's surprisingly twangy sound. Could be a function of being mounted to the bridge perhaps? I do think I'll be swapping it out in the near future though.

    The neck pickup is wonderful. Fantastic sound and good, crisp response. Also not a bad sound in the middle position, even with what I consider a less than perfect pickup in the ridge position.

    As far as playability goes, after some bridge saddle adjustments it plays like a dream. The neck feels great in the hand, though I'm usually more comfortable with larger profile necks.


    All in all, I'd have had to have been a fool to pass up on this deal. Especially for a $125. It would've been a deal at twice or three times the price.

    Hi, Im the other guy doing the trade. I changed my mind but you can just keep the black tele for your trouble.
    No, I have a 1992 62 mij tele with no serial by Made in Japan either. Good deal for you, congrats!

    The serial # isn't on the neck it is on the bridge plate and this one has been switched out for a 6 saddle one.
