    DSC02323_2.jpg My blueburst Fender Tele Plus with maple neck. The picture doesn't do it justice. I really like the white shell pickguard, but a black one would look cool on it too.

    Blondes have more fun. And that fretboard has to be maple. Pickguatd? Mines tortoiseshell but I'm quite partial to black. Like the tort though.

    I'd like to make one like this one day but with a red or black pearloid guard and darker neck.

    Aside from classic Blackguard stylings, I am a sucker for a nice medium-wide band 2-tone burst from near-black to honey, with ash showing grain in there, coupled with a black pickguard and maple fretboard.

    Sorry; no picture handy... but I have a Texas Tele which fits the bill on this.

    Classic.....
    If I was to have a second one though it would probably be black.

    Almost called a physician because I thought I was seeing things. "What's he talking about, Blueburst? It's clearly a forest paint-job."

    Nice looking guitar, but it'd look even better with a vintage cream pickguard, imo.

    I made a partscaster like i wanted it... in my signature :)

    2 tone sb, black guard, maple neck.

    I like rw necks but i dont like it when the board is rw and headstock is maple.

    My tele is pretty much my favorite setup aesthetically. Olympic white, tortoise pickguard, maple neck.

    Currently Lake Placid blue... here's my AV '64 (and avatar) but I have a thing about a colour I don't have, greened-blue/ice blue. It's my next partscaster when I get the funds together.

    It kind of changes all the time…

    I like the classic ‘50s blonde & maple, both with the black guard and with the “'54" white guard (my 60th anni has transitioned from original black to current white…)

    I also love blonde + white guard + rosewood à la Robben Ford.

    Actually, there are several combinations of white + RW that I love: LPB, sunburst and jeez this Ice Blue is a stunner ^^ too… instantly added to my list.
    Also nice: candy apple red à la Muddy (happen to have this one), Tuxedo, sonic blue, and surf green.

    So all in all I just need 10 teles to have all of my favorite finishes :eek:

    I think this thread is borderline sexual, it'll probably be removed soon.
