I bought a classic vibe telecaster 50's vintage blond in march 2013 though AMS. The guitar was perfect of course but I always wished it was more yellow. So I took off the black guard and made a tracing on some white copier paper and put that on the tele. Doing this really brought out the yellow in the guitar so I went about searching for a white 5 hole 3 ply guard. I soon discovered the guard I wanted was more than I was willing to pay, so I just decieded to live with it as is. About a week later I was looking at the local guitar listing on ksl.com and found the exact guard I was looking for and it was priced at 10.00. So I call the guy up and asked him about the guard. It is a Warmoth guard and he bought it for his tele because he didn't like the black guard. His guitar was also a cv50's vb. I said "wow thats the same guitar I have" and I told him "I wanted the guard to bring out the yellow in mine because it looks to white with the black guard". He said that "his was too yellow and he wanted his to look white like the pictures he had seen before he ordered it." Then he asked me If I wanted to trade. He must have traveled 100 miles round trip to my house and back to make this trade and he also threw in a gig bag, a strap and 3 pickguards. I felt so guilty I gave him a copy of Dan's book,"How to make your electric guitar play great" Anyway,this thing is exactly the color I was looking for. I have yet to see one this yellow but the finish is not as see through as the one I traded. This guitar is the same shade of yellow as Robin Ford's tele, I love it. So if anyone has any pics of this model that are really yellow, I would love to see them.
