    So, here's my first Telecaster! It's a 2013 MIM that I found in "as new" conditions at a great price.


    It had a horrible non-original black perloid pickguard that I immediately removed. Now it's all business!


    I never thought this day would come: I always had only american made Fenders, but I chose this Tele over an American Special and an American Standard! It's unbeliavable how this thing feels and plays.


    I'm really loving this guitar. In the past I didn't get this feeling for many guitars... I'm very happy. When it's time, maybe I'll change the pickups, but for now they're more than enough!

    I like the black on black and maple fret board. Reminds me of David Gilmour's strat. Congrats! It is stunning to look at.

    Saw the pics on the Strat Talk forums.

    My Tele is so versatile I have to play it every day.

    Love the all black, don't change a thing.

    Beautiful. Prefer maple fretboard too... just personal preference.

    That thing looks very nearly perfect. Congratulations!

    Also love the authentic looking relic job on that bench.

    The black on black looks killer! Reminds me of David Gilmour's Strat.

    Happy NGD!

    My black MIM Standard wasn't getting used much so with $80 worth of parts and some creative routing I turned it into a Custom.
