One time in band camp:
Particularly because it goes the wrong way!
Me too, the Tele is a simple beast with functionality not bling.
Strat has quack, Tele has cluck!
Not a fan of the classic knobs, so I stole this idea from Muddy:
Heck yeah! Custom deer bone switch tip too!
Two volumes, universal tone = infinite tonal variations in mid position.
Any chance of a Strat with Duck Head knobs? LoL
Now this Tele will be my 3 week old granddaughter’s Tele when Pops (me) leaves this world...
A little bling for the baby is not a man card nor a Tele card violation ;-)
Explain whatcha got going on here bub?
I spy some modifications Lol . If ya have a thread on this guitar post the link.
I like custom knobs ...
You know, I have never seen a Telecaster with those transparent Gibson “speed knobs” on it.
Oh, with these?
Heavy knureld, but still classic
It's a partscaster, body from Guitar Fetish, neck is Asian bought on eVilbay, Schaller locking tuners, Minihum from All Parts, bridge pu is Guitar Fetish. I got the control plate from Amazon. It has separate volume controls for bridge and neck pickups, a universal tone control and standard 3-way switch, a la Jazz Bass. This setup allows me to dial in just about any tone, from a dark, woody semi jazz by rolling off the tone control and using mainly the minihum, to a bright Tele twang with the tone dimed, and bridge up and neck down. My favorite tone is the tone rolled off about 75%, neck up to just under full up and bridge rolled in to brighten the tone as desired (usually to about 80%). This yields a sound that is big and full, but has lots of sparkle and chime. I play rhythm, clean, so this is my primary sound.
Hooe she doesn’t get it until she’s at least 40!
Tele knobs functional??
The switch position is a 70 year old joke! Way too close to the knob when in the rear position and impossible to get your finger behind it.
