Days like these i hate being left handed!!!
It probably saves you a lot of money.
Never bothered Hendrix! Go for it!
Or Paul McCartny
I contacted WD Music to see if they have the tooling to cut pickguards for the CP Triple Tele (or as I like to call it, the "Nigel Tufnel Esquire"). They do! But its not listed on their website.
If you're interested, pick out a color from http://www.wdmusic.com/pickguard_te_100.html (those prices will apply to your order). Then send an email to email@example.com with your name, color choice and shipping address. They will place the order and have a paypal request sent to your email address for payment.
If anyone knows of anyone else that can do replacement pickguards for this model, please post away.
I was going to make a template from the guard that comes on it, then I can make my own.
Trying to decide what color to go with, as the black is just so boring, not to mention, I'd like to keep this "first new guitar" as pristine and scuff/scratch free as possible, just in case this becomes a rare, sought after model in the future! Of course, the fact that I don't use picks makes that a little easier. I was thinking that a three or four ply black/white, with the black on top might give just enough of an interesting outline to break up the black. From the only pics I can find, the original pick guard appears to possibly be a satin, matte or flat finish?
On a side note, does anyone know how to find out how many of these were actually made?
Oh yeah thats all I needed to hear man.
Someone said the pick guard is gloss once you take the plastic film off.
I'm thinking either 3-ply parchment or bakelite (I have a WD bakelite guard on my Baja) if I don't like the stock one.
(There's a part of me that wants to try the pile-of-skulls graphic, but I can just see my wife rolling her eyes now)
Take it for what it's worth, but a call to Fender tells me that the number of these actually made was 1,066. Unless it's a really crappy example of a guitar this may be quite a valuable guitar! Or NOT!
I'm thinking that a generally non-invasive and totally reversible mod, like switching the middle pup's magnetic polarity, along with reversing the wiring, and swapping the volume pot for an S1 or push pull that would allow switch positions two & four to be in series may be really cool! This would provide a pseudo humbucker setup for those positions!
Try Rob at Cavalier.
And give up being able to El Kabong with it, no way!
The two cheap, but well set up, ukulele's I'm giving my two year old twin grandsons, likely have "El Kabong" written all over their near future! Well, at least one of them.
MIM?? Really think so?? I have serious doubts about that. If they get too much interest they will make a CS model for $4k is more likely.
Yeah, but everyone knows that the Custom Shop can never capture the magic of the Ensenada originals. ;-P
The Fender Pawn Shop 51 was a more expensive version of the Squier 51
It's a good thing that this Tele is a little of both. It's a Custom Shop design made in Ensenada.
With Custom Shop Nocaster pickups
