    classic 60s versus baja 50s

    roadworn tele?

    Say, I'm looking at a "road worn" telecaster, 2005 supposedly... and i'm curious what they're like and what a good, normal price would be... i put the road worn in "" becuase its desert sand and the serial number doesn't list that as a color option... any help or tips would be awesome! thanks

    thinline body ash: best source??

    I guess that's about all, just that- I think I decided to build me a guitar - an ash thinline with a soft v and baja style electromatics - think I'm going to stain the wood a mossy/vine maple-y green and put on a deep red pickguard. - this is the plan... wish me luck.

    Harmony repair options

    say any harmony purists? i have an ethical question... i have a Harmony h6340 from 1973 with the bridge pulling up on the pin side.

    Oh no.

    Hi all, well, I haven't got an electic guitar at the moment, just re-configured a resonator i've been playing for the last 15 years to try to get a more twangy tele sound that is driving me crazy - can't stop thinking it - can't stop hearing it. too broke for the guitar of my dreams, but working...
