Is there a “preferred” grain pattern on Teles?

    Thanks, I like that bridge pickup alignment, too. So much so that I chose that feature for those two (of my five) teles. Here they are again, side by side. The BSB is older, made in 2011, the "Firecaster" on the left was made in 2019. That pic was taken when the Firecaster was new.

    Neither tele was custom made by me, but by Bob Logan of Logan Custom Guitars. It's his Logan Custom straight plate bridge. Here's a close-up on the bridge plate of the BSB when it was new. You can see his name engraved in the plate. BTW, the plate is stainless steel.

    Holy Smokes! I apologize - I stand corrected.

    But I sure would have wept, the day they cut that magnificent tree down. It must have been just incredible. And an incredibly fast growing ash, as well.

    Except, now they say all these ash trees are living on borrowed time. I hope, somehow, this isn't true.


    Anyway, I've got (really) too many of these 1 piece ash bodies. Almost all from Tommy Rosamond. I doubt any of the trees mine came from, were more than 40% of the size of this tree yours came from. This is a mind blowing image.
