    It's okay, Joe. I got squint at your Tele from the pics. I was just curious how they wound up at that 100 pixels x 100 pixels size. Was that an intentional choice? Do you have some image editing software to resize those pics? (I use Macromedia Fireworks MX 2004.)

    Maybe if you can't resize/upload right now, you could give us more of a description of your Natural Tele?

    BTW, I am by no means a real computer savvy guy, and when I was starting on this forum, threads over in the "Forum Problems & Issues" sub-forum really helped me out.

    There's the "uploading pics to the Gallery" (http://www.tdpri.com/forum/forum-problems-issues/149086-uploading-pics-gallery.html) thread.

    And then there's the "How to Post Photos on the TDPRI" (http://www.tdpri.com/forum/forum-problems-issues/50698-how-post-photos-tdpri.html) thread.

    Hi, Telenate. I don't know why your Google search didn't work with those search keywords, but anyway here is a hyperlink to the URL to Bob's website:

    Hey, Joe, good to see you got a larger sized pic of your Natural Logan Tele attached to yuor post. Good job.

    And speaking of good job, nice looking Logan. I love that natural vintage look with a blackguard and a maple neck. What kind of wood is that body? Looks like it has real character.

    As for Bob using a different neck now, I don't know if your referring to something besides licensed Fender necks or what. I do know from seeing many of his eBay auctions that he offers necks with different profiles: "U" shaped, "soft V" shaped, etc. Mine is a comfortable (not too thin) modern "C" shape with a 9.5 radius, a Birdseye Maple with 21 frets.

    You are correct they are Mighty Mite Necks, he is still using them, he just has to shape the headstock different on his eBay items because Fender Legal sent him a letter. At least thats what he told me over the phone when I was getting my custom order.

    Yeah, you're not likely to hear any complaints from Logan owners about price. :lol:

    However, as one of us (littlewing?) has said in another thread, the best thing about a Logan Custom guitar is not the price. A number of us (myself included) are of the opinion that his work compares to at least Fender MIAs.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. Of all the Fender Teles I've played, from a Squier CV to the AV52RI and a lot in between, only the 52 rivals my mahogany Logan Tele in feel, sound and playability. JMHO, YMMV.

    my only issue w/ Bob is that he doesn't use screw in the neck pickup. But he uses pickguards with screw holes. Maybe a little picky.

    This is not true actually, it looks like it from pictures but he always screws them to the body from talking to him on the phone, the holes you are seeing on the pick guard are so that you can adjust the height without taking the guard off, however if you look at my guitar, I requested a 5-hole guard without pickup holes so it looks "cleaner" I am picky in that dept. myself, dont let that stop you, you can easily request him to put a different pick guard on, or put one on yourself at a later time, but the truth is that he mounts them to the body.

    EDIT: Oh I see that you have one :oops: are you sure that yours is a pick guard mount, I obv. cant tell from the pictures you posted, so I appologize if yours is in fact a pick guard mount, Bob told me on the phone when I mentioned that I dont like that method, that he mounts them to the body, he said "I had too many problems with the screws/pickups coming loose during shipping" so he doesnt do it that way anymore.
