    Are there any thinline Teles that aren't....

    That is a nice looking guitar and most here will love it and leave it as is… I, on the other hand, would be looking for a regular sized pickguard and mod it.. I know- different strokes - Maybe i am in the minority but i just cannot get over those long curvy pg’s!

    Can anyone recommend me some vintage-correct strat pickups?

    I have the same specs on my strat and I am very fond of the 54 strat specs. I would look at the Fralin 54's or the Bareknuckle Apache sets - both are Alnico III and both are stellar. I did not want to change my entire set as I really like my Vanzandt True Vintage in the neck and middle -...

    Best sounding Silverface

    That sounds about perfect! Ben Fargen makes great amps!

    Are there any thinline Teles that aren't....

    The ONLY reason i dont own a thinline tele is because of that heinous pickguard that covers more than half of the guitar - but this one ^ is awesome! That is what I will do when I get a thinline - find one with a normal pickguard like this.

    ‘CIJ’ Tele dated 1997-98, no idea how to know if it’s real

    Nice score! It looks legit and if it plays well - then it is a steal also!

    Have you ever discovered music in a movie?

    I was recently watching a weirdish movie on cable called “colossal” and was not too enthused about it but kept watching… Then this song came out and caught my ear immediately;

    Curt Magnan strings?

    Been using Mangan pure nickel 10's for years and years - best toneful strings I have found in a long time.

    Perhaps I’m persnickety but…Quality Control on original 50s new tele

    I can only speak for myself - I play a Tele like it stole money from me - the second I get my hands on it. I might have noticed those "defects" on my first string change while I was happily wiping the fretboard and getting it all re-set up again to my specs - and I would have probably thought...

    Glendale Tele-style neck

    One thing I do remember though - I really really loved that neck - it was so easy to play and comfortable and it did feel very good in the hand. Just a stellar neck shape IMO.
