    I like it, I'd like it better w/o the humbucker but still very cool. Congrats and enjoy.

    Interesting guitar, I'll be very surprised if you find many of these coming out of the wood work. Treasure that one.

    I put one of those Gibson PAF neck pickups into my 68 tele in 1969 - the guitar can cover pretty much any type of gig with that set-up IMO.

    Also have a new Les Paul that is ok for taking to jam sessions but not even close to that old tele with the neck bucker for round open warm clean tones.

    My 69 has a 63 pat number pickup and a Barfen modern T. Great combination any tone you want. Love that rare pickguard!

    That's a lot of weight to put on that Silvertone cabinet! Hahaha

    Nice tele. Don't think I've ever seen one of those.

    Incredible guitar!!! if you had told me that purple pearloid pickguards do exist, I would not have believed you!
    This link above shows another rare - if not unique - rare bird.

    Too bad yours was modified for a humbucker. At least, the original finish and pickguard weren't lost.
    Take (very) good care of it, and keep playing it.

    Oh, and BTW, Burgundy Mist is one of my favorite colors. It's rare in itself, so with a pearloid PG on top of that... Wow!!!

    I love Burgundy Mist, but I'd like it better without the pink guard, although I've never been a fan of any mother of toilet seat PGs, including the standard white ones on thinlines.

    Nice looking. Unique. Better be good to play a guitar like that.
