    Congratulations. That looks amazing. I'm not into knots and cracks either but Ron's made a great feature of that piece of wood. It really catches the eye.

    I've come close to ordering a guitar from Ron a couple of times but held back for some reason. One day I'll do it.

    Congrats on your new and awesome guitar!

    I love the crack and the knot off to the side like that. It's like very spare but striking ornamentation.

    Whoa that is one nice set up you got there! A beautiful guitar and an awesome pedal board through a Rivera amp. It doesn’t get any better than that!!

    One trick I recently learned on my pedalboard/tele combo (likely everyone knows this already), is to run any gain pedals through the Boss NS2 Send/Return loop to eliminate buzz/hum with single coils. Makes a massive difference versus just running them through the pedal input/output. My Rivera is basically silent with full gain/distortion cranked on the tele!

    Beautiful, congratulations! Ive been onto Ron before about a tele but had to pull out as my better half had a much better idea to spend the money on a wedding!

    I still think theres one in my future.

    Still getting some great tones. Clean channel with a TC Spark and HOF Reverb, Rivera amp and middle position = Hendrix Little Wing. I can’t even get that tone with my Strat. Makes me wonder if Hendrix was playing a Tele on part of that track??
