    Greetings from Seattle.

    I have two Teles. The black one to the right of bottom photo was bought new in the mid 90s. I quickly put a PAF in the neck. It stayed that way for years, but I eventually switched it to a TV Jones filtertron a couple years ago. It's wearing flatwounds and doing jazz duty. (The white "metal" tele on the left is not mine. The local shop wanted a picture of the contrast.)

    The turquoise tele is Japanese, with a bone nut and nicer fretwork than the black USA Tele. I suspect that the nut and fretwork didn't come this way out of the factory. Whoever did the neck has my respect. I haven't tried to ID the pickups, but really like them as well. My additions were Gotoh locking tuners that don't look like lockers, and the Mastery bridge.

    I'm not great, but spending more time playing now than I have in years. Happy with the guitars. Could quibble about amps, but that is potentially an endless chase.
