oh my .... WOW !!!!
that's a pretty gorgeous tele ! conditions also apper to be excellent
Stringing it up top-loaded is definitely one of my plans. It would be great to hear what the difference is exactly. After the refret I'll give that a try.
I'll post the measurements here soon. It's not easy to measure with the strings on. I'll let you know!
Hi Henry, yes there definitely was some anxiety. It's a lot of money and there are so many fakes out there... But I am very glad too that all is fine! Thanks!
Thanks everyone! All your comments describe exactly the way I feel when I get up in the morning and the first thing I do is pick up the Tele.... Wow! Mother of God! Oh My! Oh My...... But mostly: Woohooooooooo!!!
That is just perfect.
That's a sweet guitar!
Wishing you a happy future together!
I'd be interested in your opinion on how this one feels and sounds in comparison to your other teles?
Btw, are you going to keep your current avatar for sentimental reasons?
What a cool guitar - thanks for posting!
I probably said it in the first go but whatever, nice guitar!
Killer! Those 59-60 slabs are magic-
This is definition of beauty embodied in a guitar. Perfect!
Beautiful! Just makes sure your tetanus booster is up-to-date!
Thanks everyone. Still loving it. And bsman, yes my booster is up to date so I think I'm safe....
Ha ha, hadn't thought about that.... Well, lets just say that it is for sentimental reasons, for now. it's still a great guitar and beautiful....
The trouble is that all three my Teles are very different. And to me the state of the frets always make a huge difference in sound and feel. I feel guitars resonate more freely with larger frets. But that's perhaps just the way I play. Other people sound fine with smaller frets.... So IMO I would have to compare again after a refret.
The 67 is Alder and this one is Ash. They both resonate about the same and that is very much! But the 67 is a little brighter sounding. To me the tone is less deep, less warm, a bit more shallow. Although this 60 also has a lot of brightness.
My 71 is very different. It has a maple neck. But I also put a heavier bridge on it influenced by Keith Richard in the 80s.... And it has different pick ups. So it really sounds very different. A bit fuller and warmer.
Interesting. Thanks for the comparison.
Stunning. It just oozes mojo and classic style. Congrats!
wow, just wow
Beauty...enjoy every minute with her!
