I picked up one of the new performer series Tele's, had not planned on buying a guitar, but this one spoke to me. I had wanted a B-bender guitar and thought this would be a cool guitar to have one installed in. I had the guitar for about a day and sent it off to Forrest Lee Jr. in Nashville. He did a really nice job, I had him recess the back cover. These new Tele's are super nice little guitars, once set up properly. It holds its own against some of my nicer Tele's. Lots of fun to play, I am still learning how to use the bender. Made a few other mods with the knobs and the P-Bass pickup cover for the ashtray. I tend to replace pots and pickups, cant seem to help myself, but so far I am happy with the stock set up.
