Hey everyone I noticed that we who like vintage teles, but also like when our brew can be a bit more hot n heavy don't have a place to stay on the forum, so i decided to open up the 52 hot rod club. Share pics, say why you like it, any history and stories about it, how you got it, etc. Pretty much whatever you like about this amazing guitar. __________________________________________________________________________________________ Ill start I got this one election day at Manny's. I went in to fix my recent 52 RI, and when i learned that the buzzing was inoperable (improperly planed neck :neutral, i was either gonna replace with another 52 ri or this. After playing it and having everyone i talked to recommend it over the RI, including another telecaster playing customer, I finally pulled the trigger on it. Fantastic guitar. Great playability and sound, overdrives my blues Jr very well, more then a 52ri could. Good feel and clean sound too, and acoustically superb.And lets not forget looks to die for. Here are some crappy cell pics- Also, the guitar had a trial by fire with me today when i auditioned for soundscapes. I played Closer to the heart and did some improv. Did well on the neck setting, even with the crappy amp they had available to us. At the audition, everyone seemed to like it a lot. Post and enjoy!!!
