Thanks - seen a few tips about screwing into the horizontal... what does that mean sorry? :/
That’s a great find! HNGD!
eye have one lpb also , meyene feels really light [ don't have a way to weigh it ] plays great sounds great [ really like the grey bottom pickups ] and the case is the best color of all the cases.
I agree, I've got Glendale Groovy 60s on mine, as well as the electro-socket. We obviously think alike.
As in the photo I attached. If need be Switchcraft do a jack with a longer thread that goes into an electro-socket and allows for angled leads, which is what I've got. You will need the imperial sized electro-socket which has a satin look to it. The Chrome one is metric which I have found out to my cost!.
Well someone earlier in the thread mentioned that they heard (from Fender) that approx 500 of the LPB 64 are in existence. I think we should keep this thread alive until we’ve accounted for all of them!
Belatedly: it’s a wonderful Fender guitar – you know, one of the top 3-4 telecasters in my personal list – everything is right: color, play, sounds… all the 64s I’ve tried were absolutely fantastic.
Well, there’s one for sale not far from where I live. I am resisting: I don’t have the money or need for another tele right now, and the “60s tele” spot in my stable is occupied by a much-loved Baja60 (I know that if I bought the 64, one of the two would eventually have to go). But it’s there – and it’s the only one I’ve seen around so far – and your NGD is fanning up GAS again in my poor weak heart dammit.
May I give you a tiny piece of (counter-)advice? Don’t over-tinker with it. Electrosocket? Yes: IF and when the stock one starts giving you problems. Loose switch tip? A bit of masking tape on the tip of the switchblade is a less drastic way of fixing it: tip will stop coming off by itself, it will come off if you pull it with your hands, and the tape will go without leaving a sign when you want to. As it is now, the guitar is such a beauty that yes, I’d shell out the 12£ for a Pure Vintage part and make a mental note not to super-glue anything on that guitar. Then I’d stop tinkering for awhile and I’d start just playing it
Still loving playing this guitar, but I have noticed it going out of tune quite easily. I stretch the strings nicely and still a few weeks later it’s going out slightly whilst playing. Are the machine heads likely to be slipping? Are they a popular upgrade people do on the 64? I’ve never had much of a tuning problem with other guitars in two decades so pretty sure I’m putting them on ok by now...
In my opinion, if you follow the instructions and tuck the string down in the shaft, have sufficient number or wraps around the poll, then it comes down to the strings you utilize.
I am of the change them often if you play often school. Just me, but I prefer strings that feel fresh.
Well, a few months in and how things have changed - the Vintage line has been dropped, and there is a new kid on the block in the Original doublebound ‘60s’ lake placid blue. That has a 9.5 inch radius which seems to be the preferred profile, although my 7.25 inch neck doesn’t fret out at any point in the slightest. Strange how certain things can get in your head after reading about them endlessly. Anyhow, still love my 64. Will the end of the line make this model the stuff of legend in years to come..?
There is also a lot of hate for the AO line from people that love the AVs .. But it all cool as you still love your AV.
I have a LPB double bound tele, but might well be tempted by the fiesta red 60s AO model
New stuff will always show up making you second guess your "wants"... I try to stay away from the specs on a guitar, but have to admit I always look. It's so tempting to get it in your mind that this is better than that even before you play them...
That is one beautiful guitar!!love the color matched with the Rosewood board.bet she sounds as beautiful as she looks. Congratulations!!!!
