    Congrats; looks like something Keith Richards would play.

    That's the guitar that I had in high school. That exact model. Oh that's a thing for me to see!

    So nice! Congrats.

    Yeah!!!! In my dreams. Lol

    Thanks guys.

    It belonged to a bedroom player. Needed to be set up a bit, intonation set, new strings, Daddario 11s.
    Wide range humbucker is nice. Bridge is pure Tele.

    De nada.

    I was being serious; yours reminds me of this one that Keith played (or still uses?).

    I had one of those in solid black in the late 70's. One of my favorite guitars I ever owned. Just something about it.

    Love it. Nicely broken in and patina'd. How does that front HB sound?

    That's a great question.. I haven't yet defined it.

    Clean with a touch of reverb, it's got depth and width, but I think it could use a bit more definition. I could probably get that with some amp adjustment.
    When the bridge is with it I don't notice it so much. The bridge blends enough clarity. It's coming to me nicely, but it's a work in progress.

    Or, like the late Terry Kath's telecaster (also w/humbucker in the neck position).

    I think it sounds especially good, especially for this performance:



    Listen to his tone at 0:19 (after he turns off the Wah-wah). It sounds like both pickups engaged and very cutting but sweet, if that makes any sense.

    Lovely axe and I especially dig the patina on the headstock. Enjoy it in good health.

    Sure. :)

    To me, NGDs are very special. They are up there with getting a new car, house, etc.

    Yeah.. I can't agree more. I know it's the "new kid on the block" but there's something special about this guitar. I've got a couple of really nice guitars, but this one is different. We'll see....

    I've spent the last hour+ on the tube with Terry Kath and Chicago,
    Now I know why Chicago has been in my top 5. I haven't words for my emotions....
