    1971 Rosewood Tele: Any recs for routing repairs? (ideally SoCal/AZ)

    My brother wants to partially restore a 1971 Rosewood Telecaster he bought from the estate of a jazz player who modified the instrument fairly substantially likely early in the guitar's life(*).

    Sales & Stupid Deal at Musicians Friend FSR Martin D-18, D-28 & HD-28

    MF has sales and Stupid Deal going on their own "special" Martins with excellent specs, in particular: 1) Adirondack Spruce top 2) VTS treatment These look to be specially made to GC/MF specs which is why, I suspect, the key terms "D-18" and "D-28" are missing from the description. It's by...

    Top Telecaster Content (Cropper) - 1967 Stax Revue

    One of my top favorite videos. Maybe my favorite as I've watched it so many times. Cropper's Tele has the best sound I've ever heard (is it the Marshall backline?)--plug it in and go. Duck Dunn is beyond cool. Booker T and Al Jackson Jr. Then of course Arthur Conley, Eddie Floyd, Sam &...

    Questions about a 1953 or 54 Telecaster

    New guy here, but old timer elsewhere in guitar forumdom. This is a Telecaster that's been in the family for some time, s/n 27xx. There are two things I can't square about it and I am hoping someone here might have some info. 1) Is there any significance that the body dates preceed the...
