Hello all... Dedicated humbucker man here playing mediocre guitar for the past 30+ years and I'm loving my new (to me) tele. It's a late 70's Crestline 6 barrel bridge. Info on these guitars is limited and opinions vary as to who manufactured and what parts were used. I can safely say that it's a faded red sparkle poly finish over a plywood body. It has a highly figured maple neck/fretboard. Unknown pickups and unknown 500k pots. I can also safely say that I love it!!!! The neck is a perfect feel for me, I actually is a very close match to my 2011 Melody Maker. And the tones I get from it are perfect....I actually do not need to change any amp settings....it's a different animal than my Gibson, and it roars quite differently, but with all the same settings, I roars exactly how I want it to.....with the added benefit that it can purr with just as much juice... Here are a couple photos I'm playing through a Peavey Classic 30 1x12 and Peavey 2x12 cab. I run an Ecoplex preamp pedal infront and a boss GE7 through the effects loop. With my Melody Maker I run only the dirty channel, but I use both with the tele. My styles are classic rock times to punk. Anyhow...great to part of the TeleWorld now...I didn't know what I was missing. I've owned multiple strata and just never took to them....I kind of just assumed a tele work be more of the same....I was wrong... Lol. Other gear pics.
