    Want to put a Glaser in one of my Teles.

    I’m not an expert but I’m sure a Glaser mechanism can be installed in Thinline bodies also.

    Strange happening this morning

    Where I live every shift at every FD station has a paramedic who responds to every ambulance call, transported in a fire truck.

    1980s MIJ tele custom '62 (A serial)

    I was recently given an MIJ Tele Custom. Double-bound, sunburst, just like in the above photos. It has good pickups but a low quality switch and low quality tone/volume pots. Yes, it makes a difference but is an easy fix. Mine, also, does not say "Custom Telecaster" on the headstock, just...

    Master Built Wildwood Guitars

    I visit the Wildwood web site often which may be why I'm not enthusiastic about CS Fenders or Gibsons. They literally have hundreds (or more) in stock. Why pay a premium for something that's mass produced? There's no doubt they will sound and play great but so can most any non CS guitar.

    AO 50s Neck - nice but fat.

    Try a replacement neck BUT it might change the sound. My most resonant Tele has a big Allparts neck.

    1981 ‘52 Telecaster Vintage

    Looking forward to your photo(s). A closeup of the bridge plate with the serial number, and the dot underneath, would be cool.

    Is this a ‘D’?

    The same “D” had been stamped in the neck pocket of some early ‘50s Teles.

    For Aircraft Enthusiasts: the rise and demise of the biggest cargo plane ever.

    It was at Denver's airport many years ago. All I remember is that everything else had to shut down while it was landing and taking off. Also, it was parked far away from the terminal for a couple days which made it easy to see on the horizon as you drove to the airport. Huge is too small of a word.

    New Wildwood neck - fret buzz after luthier fret dressed it and he says "it's normal with new necks"...

    Spend your money elsewhere. Don't give him an opportunity to make it right, he doesn't deserve it.

    Neck Pocket?

    Ages ago I played a '76 at Rumble Seat that had a huuuge gap yet it was a great guitar. Very light and resonant. I should have bought it but I couldn't get over its stripped finish. Shouldawouldacoulda.

    It will sound and feel even better once it's "played in".

    Lindsey Buckingham playing a butterscotch telecaster

    Could just be the lighting but the edges of the Tele look quite rounded. Is that a forearm cut?
