And thank you for playing...
I had one when I joined...now I have a kind-of tele-shaped guitar with a tele bridge and a tele bridge PU, and that's close enough for me.
I don't know, you tele me.
Well I guess my fate is sealed!
Sold my only tele the other day! It was a dud. I'm really gassing for a baja tele though! That's gonna have to wait though, I've got projects to work on first
When I joined I had one, a Squier CV Thinline. Then arthritis kicked in, the thin neck on the Squier wasn't helping. I sold it. I was Tele-less for several months, just played my Jazzmaster, and hoped the TDPRI Police wouldn't bust me. Finally, a clean Classic Series 60's Tele showed up on eBay with that comfortable C Shaped Neck & 7.25" Radius, and I got it! I knew at that point I squeaked by, home free, and was back in the good graces of TDPRI. (There is a statue of limitations I Hope?)
I think it would be weird to be a member on a Mustang forum if you only owned a corvette....just sayin
I have a Warmoth partscaster, but no Fender Teles. The reason why is...money.
No, I do not have a Telecaster. Reason for coming here is like reason(s), others here have given. I have been a Fender guy since the early 60's. So, at least, connected to the family that Tele's are part of. Besides, I like this forum.
I love my "ebony" top Cozart Tele copy! First, on the head stock is a decal that has the brand badge PLUS it says "Custom Hand Made"! Wow, I have all kinds of questions about that. But, after stoning the razor sharp frets, putting brass saddles into the really weird bridge, new pots & tone cap, new Russian pickups, & new tuning machines, damn it's a pretty nice "unique" Tele copy with a satin finish neck wiith a 1/2 of a Louisville Slugger bat neck. After all of the work though, it plays pretty well & sounds really nice! The best thing is it's REALLY LIGHT! I'm old & my LesPaul custom, or R D Artist bass days are pretty much in the past. No cargo shorts though. For fun a pair of 1987 JAM's to blind everyone.
I'm trying to sell my squire cv bsb now.
If you REALLY want a true Telecaster player look, get some Marty Stuart attire. Hell fire! He not only can burn the fingerboard off of a Telecaster but you can see him from a while away!
Not to steal from easy riders but...
It's not what you play - It's THAT you play...
I was sent here as a mole for the Les Paul forum. My cover is blown. Im out.
I bought one of these in 1989 from a shop in Atlanta, GA. After replacing the pickups (a JB that could split & play out of phase) & some 2nd hand strat p/u's, it was a really cool guitar. A nice FLAT fingerboard (very fast) & didn't weigh much. I trusted my nephew with it when I moved to Australia for a while. Of course, when I got back....IT WAS GONE!! I think he got a couple 1.75L of Jaeger for it. He doesn't touch my guitars anymore.
A Gretsch Corvette?
Never owned one.
I built a JBass that has a rounded upper horn, so it's Tele-ish.
I'm currently building a DC Tele, bridge HB and neck P90 and snakehead headstock.
Want a early 70's Thinline Tele with WRHB's and a Thinline Cabronita.
I maintain that everybody ought to own a telecaster. Even if they aren't musicians. It's just one of those things everybody should have, even if they never plan to use it. Like flood insurance. You just never know.
I don't have a tele but I like them, and I might build a parts tele at some point.
I hang out here regardless because this site seems to have a really diverse group of mostly accepting, tolerant people populating it. Lots of interesting thread topics and points of view. Lots of enthusiasm for different types of music. If telecasters are the "premise" to attract that group, so be it.
Like for home defense also. Imagine hitting an intruder with that thing!
