This guitar is my first Tele. I've had it for over ten years. It has had tons of different finishes, PU:s, a Bigsby b5, you name it! I've even routed the body like '67 Smuggler's Tele, for a weight relief! This time I Esquired it, with a ceramic PU, from Mexican STD Tele and it came out really nice sounding (totally different sound, than Mex STD).
