    Wow! What a great idea LGOberean.I for one am lucky,in that i live 10 miles from Bob's shop.I happen to own 2 of his Tele's. He's a great guy,easy to work with,and i know he's not getting rich with the prices he charges. I have the Red Crimson with gold hardware,and a dark Mahogany similar to yours with gold hardware and white pickguard. Excellent easy playing guitars. Hope to buy more in the future if this economy ever comes around:(Anyway,i'll try to post pics if i can figure it out.

    Woohoo, a Logan club! Sign me up! I've got that Silverburst T-style one that nobody around here seems to like because it doesn't have that 'classic' look to it... I'm absolutely in love with the thing however! Professional craftsmanship and sound to this baby! I need to get some more pics of her as I've only got the ones that Bob sent me before he shipped out the axe, so I'll put those up once I take some.

    Here are the specs on mine:

    -South American cedar body
    -Weighs 9.1 lbs
    -Nitro finished
    -Wilkinson bridge with brass compensated saddles
    -Aftermarket Curtis Novak custom wound pickups installed (originally came with the Wilkinson pickups that I found to be a bit too hot)
    -21 fret amber-tinted nitro finished maple neck (9.5 radius, 1-11/16 nut width, modern c-shaped)
    -Alpha pots, 3 way circuit switch
    -Sprague .047 orange drop tone capacitor
    -Shielded pickguard

    Absolute rock machine with a very vintage sound to it!

    New pics to come...

    nope didn't work....the clipboard thing you mentioned isn't there....not surprizing though....a friend of mine tried to talk me to a site once...we both did the same things and he went one place and i went another.....nothing about the net surprises me....

    however....i love my Logan Tele and Logan Bass....best guitars i ever had....one thing though....the mighty mite pickups he put on the bass are going to be replaced with seymour duncan vintage....mighty mites are useless

    Hey all,

    Here are some recent pics of my new acquisition, and a sweet player she is too.....I had to lift the action a little to suit my style......she's not perfect, the nitro finish appearing to have the odd minor imperfection.... but I've put some extra pics on my thread

    how

    you had an " at the beginning,,,, and a " at the end..

    if you had not put the " marks in it would have worked..

    BEAUTIFUL guitar by the way,, AWSOME!!

    I have three guitars I would have a hard time picking between looks wise..

    Tonemonkeys
    telecaster man's.
    and
    LGOberean's

    all just KOOL!!!!!

    I love the body colors of all of them.

    it is a tough call on my favorite.......

    I only have one standard for all of my tele's... Chrome Hardware.. Gold only looks right on the right guitar.. although I think that mahogony is the "right" color to pull of gold hardware.

    Wow! Just got back from going out to eat with some old friends that came into town. And the joint's been jumping while I was away!

    I checked my email when I came in, and had a note from Sanford expressing his frustration over not being able to make sense of the instructions I sent him. I emailed him back, offering to post them for him.

    Then I came straight here, and lo and behold, Slick stepped in and helped him out. Thanks, man. Glad to see that we're there for one another. And how about Sanford's Logans, eh? I told him that I don't even play bass, but his makes me want to take it up!

    And Slick, great looking Ash (wait, that kinda sounds wrong... :eek: :oops:)! I couldn't tell from the pics what kind of tuners yours had, so I'm glad you gave us the specs. I have been GASing for Bob to build me a 1953 repro, which of course would have to have the Klusons as well.

    Tonemonkey, good to hear from you again, and once again it is also great to see that beautiful Tele with the "uderstated vintage" look, as you called it in your thread. We'll look forward to those upcoming reviews.

    Thanks, Slick, glad you like her (my mahogany Tele). And yeah, I'm with ya as far as Tonemonkey's and Sanford's (telecaster man) Teles. Both beautiful. Yeah, it would be hard to have to try and choose between them.

    But then that's the great thing about this forum in general, and this club/thread in particular. I can't afford (even at Bob's great prices) to personally own a Tele in every color that catches my eye. If I could do that, I'd have a Coral Red, a Butterscotch, a Butterscotch Blonde, a Natural, a Vintage White or Blonde, a "Blackout," and who knows what else. But thanks to this and other threads on TDPRI, I can live vicariously through all you guys. So buy away, brothers, and post those pics! :D

    As for my choice of the gold hardware, as Bob can tell ya, I considered going with chrome. Two things persuaded me to "go for the gold." :rolleyes:

    1. My wife's eye for color. She's very artistic; she draws, paints in different mediums, etc. She said the gold hardware would bring out the gold tones in the mahogany, and darned if she wasn't right. (I haven't told her so, though. I don't want to screw up her humility! ;))

    2. I have a 25 yo vintage Japanese made Hohner G940 acoustic, and it has gold tuners with mahogany neck, back and sides. I liked the look on the Hohner, so I figured I would on my Logan as well.

    As I said before, I've been GASing for some time for a 1953 repro, so I would definitely go with chrome hardware on that.
