  4. I'm glad you kept somewhat of an open mind, giving this beauty a good honest try. :D

    I actually love both very traditional guitar and guitars that have the 'stuff' like yours. Congrats!

    I bought a limited edition tele that was somewhat fancy, but not as nice as yours by any means. Never bonded with it, no someone else is enjoying it.

    60's style Teles are allowed to look pretty (and that one sure is). 50's ones of course have to come with tobacco stains, burns and that stale alcohol smell.

    You see, you tell me that kind of detail and I want one too!

    While you have a nice looking LP as well ... you should put a 4-way switch on that Tele and maybe even rotate the control plate for V-T-Switch. Then your conversion will be complete!

    I am 66, playing for 55 years, pro or semi-pro since 1969. I've been playing Teles, Les Pauls and SGs since the first day I could afford one. First Tele was a Blackguard Esquire with a big "Saint" decal, bought for $25. Sold for $40. Thought I did good. I've got two other Teles right now.

    Not a fan of the 4-way personally, so I think I'm good.

    That first pictured guitar has a lot of what I love in a Telecaster. Note the number (40) who like it. You can gladly give it a good home, mine.

    I normally go for the plainer guitars but if I had the money that would tempt me. Very nice looking guitar indeed.

    That's a beauty!

    I won't be making fun of you - I applaud your taste in (not your usual) Telecasters!

    Awesome guitar. Correct me if I'm wrong, is that a flame maple neck? I am sooooo jealous.
