    Just wanted to share with you all my love for this little baby: real Keef pleasure, light, resonant, changed the bridge pickup, open G tuned and of course 5 string.
    Changed the pots to 500k, for a clearer neck humbucker.
    Put the switch selector in the place of Humbucker Tone pot.

    LOVE IT!

    Still wondering why these guitars didn't get the love they deserve - just as the pevious custom and custom II versions.

    Got mine for 150 € (new goes for 350 €!)

    Pics coming soon!

    Cheers.

    Congratulations Mimmo,
    The new 2012 VM Tele Custom is my main guitar now.

    What is new Bridge pick-up?

    Try the 50’s Gibson mod. (Change the volume Pot wiring to the tone pot’s)
    Highly recommended.

    THX! The new bridge pickup isfrom a Joe Strummer Tele, and I foind it to be pretty cool for a Keef sound: not perfect, but full of fun!
    Congrats on your too!

    What's the neck like? I like fat necks and jumbo frets, 9,5 radius

    Well, maybe I chime in here. ;)
    The VM Tele Custom neck is exactly what you like.
    IMO The best neck for a Telecaster. (or any guitar).

    As a fat C, the neck is very close to a U shape like the 52 AVRI.
    It resembles the also very nice HW1 Texas Telecaster neck.

    The finish is tinted gloss polyurethane.
    Medium jumbo frets and a 9,5 radius.
