    New guy here. I've long been a Gibson guy, but but I'm really in love with this American Deluxe Ash Butterscotch that I recently picked up. So much so that I signed up here.

    I've always loved the sound of single coils, but in other people's hands. In my hands they've always sounded thin and lacking something. I've owned a couple late model Tele's and a Strat, and they've all been great, but couldn't hold up to that humbucker sound to me. This one changes all that. It's bright, bell-like, full, and jangly. Gives me all those full chord ringing sounds that I can't get out of my humbucker guitars, and really inspires me to play differently and different type stuff. It's shot to the top of the heap as my 1b guitar right next to my R8 Les Paul that will always be my 1a. I now find myself switching back and forth between the 2 when I'm looking for a tone to fit a particular song. No two guitars could be more polar opposite in every single way if you sit and think about it, but they both are perfect in what they do.

    You can certainly love both.

    I find Teles fit the bill for Gibson players better than anything else Fender makes.

    Myself I have a mix of Strats, Teles, 335s, and Les Pauls.......love 'em all.

    What model is that, Strange Ol' Man? It's gorgeous. I was a bit surprised to see the low E on there... :D

    My first attempt at Blackguard style. '01 MIM, refinished with RR rattle cans, Esquire electronics, relic'd hardware, compensated saddles, treble-side bridge plate grind, bakelite guard and tip, slotted screws, Ron K neck plate and '55 Duncans...

    '15 Road Worn. Going to put some Gotoh compensated saddles on it soon, added a hot rail to the bridge (perhaps sacrilege 'round these parts, but I play mostly heavy music but love vintage looks ;P) and more recently (not pictured) an electrosocket. Love this guitar.

    Yeah! Two clubs for the price of one. My newly acquired 'aged' Blackguard tele which sports a beauty of an "MJT" butterscotch ash body with the required black guard.

    It is a wonderful player, with its slightly chunky 'Allparts' neck, and pickups and electrics by 'Pickup Wizard' of Ontario Canada. Incidentally, as this is a tele forum I should mention that the vintage three barrel bridge and bridgeplate are originally from a 1957 tele s/n 11279.
