    Maggie does it again!

    So most have seen the pics of a custom painted Strat my beautiful, sweet, loving, talented wife Maggie painted for me. Today she struck again! I've been wanting to personalize my tele by adding a clear pickguard with a drawing under it (aka Jimmy Bryant.) This is what she came up with for me. I...

    LyxPro Telecaster Action Issue *Help*

    I have a Lyxpro telecaster. Knowing its a cheap knockoff, im not expecting too much, but honestly just want a tele-style guitar to play without hurting the wallet, since I'm getting a better guitar soon. Got it for $88 on Amazon. Pickups are crappy, but Playable. Neck is nice for the price...

    Warmoth Neck for Tele

    I'm ordering a custom Warmoth neck, but I'd like it to have a bone nut which they don't offer. Does anyone know if Warmoth necks take a nut with flat bottom or with curved bottom? And any recommendations of brand? I can't get a response from their customer service.

    SOLD MJT Tele neck w/ Brazilian Rosewood and Kluson Deluxe tuners

    Selling a fantastic Telecaster neck - I've had this on a couple Teles, but I've learned that I'm just more suited to Gretsch/Gibson scale guitars so I'm moving this along to a new home. Specs are as follows: Musikraft neck finished by Mark Jenny in nitrocellulose lacquer Maple w/ Brazilian...

    NGD - American Original 60s Lake Placid Blue

    I decided in the end I couldn’t pass it up - I nearly bought an AO 60s Tele when I bought my Jazzmaster, and I’ve thought about it ever since, and said several times here that the AO 60s is the best current production Telecaster that Fender make. Since they seem to have just about dropped off...

    Amp recommendations

    Looking for recommendations for a portable amp that I can use for gigs in relatively small rooms. I'm currently recording with an Epiphone Triggerman, a great amp, but it weighs a ton. Primarily using a standard Tele (Mexican), 12-string Gretsch, and a vintage Strat, in that order. If the amp...

    AntiCaster - first tele style custom kit build.

    I thought I would share my journey of my first build with this community and probably ask questions along the way. I’m a big fan of the deluxe tele look so that was my foundation. I have a PRS Starla that is super versatile and I love playing it. With that, it is important to me to experiment...

    Packed- Telecaster Wiring with mixed pickups

    Hello all. Long time viewer first time caller.:) I might be the outlier here. I am a bit of a minimalist. I only want to own one electric guitar, instead of having many for different purposes. I have a SH Telecaster that I am fixing up. Humbucker is in the bridge. I am doing a full rewire of...

    Tele Pickup Journey, so far... Goldilocks...

    Hi everyone. I have a 2018 BSB Classic Vibe (China) that I really like, but wasn't that happy with the Alnico 5s fitted as standard. So I fitted: 1. Fender Texas Specials - 'too hot' (9k bridge) and lost some of the Tele dynamics; 2. the original Classic Vibe Alnico 5s (bridge 5.9k) - 'too...

    Build: Aged Olympic White and rosewood board - Rexter / Fender / Gotoh

    Bit of an opportunist build this. And a while since my last. All used but decent parts so it is low cost. Mostly this is an existing parts drawer build with some bits I just picked up to complete. Kind of like a Journeyman light relic '60s Tele 63-64 style Body: Nicely lightly aged thin nitro...

    Strat vs Tele question

    Please consider me a total naive idiot. I've had a MIM telecaster with a humbucker at the neck and a single coil at the bridge for 20 some odd years, and I find the sunburst ugly as heck, but I love the sound and feel of this guitar – mostly play the neck pickup, it was a...

    @ Daniel Lanois Home studio "Kingsway Studios" in 1994. He lived there and let us use ALL his personal equipment. This picture is me with our record producer Gavin MaKillop working on tone with Dan's Tele Deluxe. Everything you imagine vintage was there, including Bob Dylan's acoustic!
