    I had no clue that you could buy a factory purple off the rack Tele. Where are the shell pink examples?

    Is it really that blue of a purple or is the white balance off?

    Looks cool, I like the purple relic look. If the neck was 9.5 or 10 inch radius i'd be tempted to buy one myself.

    Thanks Twangsta!!! I love how it looks too!! I had no inclination to come home with a Tele...I was actually looking for something more suited for “metal” but this one just kept calling me

    Teles can do metal just fine.

    Hey Kreepy!! I used to tell myself that all the time...experience and much trial and error has taught me otherwise..a stock single coil Telecaster never cut it for me. Maybe at home by myself I could pull it off...but in a full band...definitely not. Again this is my own experience..of course we can put Hot Rails, Dimarzios, etc in and it will get us pretty damn close. I’m just talking stock, classic Telecaster setup. Never worked for me...

    Anybody here have the skills to photo shop a tortoise pick guard on it? I'm thinking it'll work.

    Beautiful guitar. I played one last week and thought it was great. It checks everything off my list except a nitro neck.

    Congrats, Andy! I've heard that those Road Worn models are grrrrreat!

    Main thing is that you love it, and you do.
