    Thought I'd share these pics of Clarence for any Keith Urban fans out there. Apologies for the sideways pictures, the app on my phone wouldn't allow me to flip them. Looks like Clarence has earned a new neck.

    Nice. Saw KU playing it (or one like it) on the Musicares Tribute to James Taylor. Wasn't much of a KU fan, but was impressed with his playing on that show. Those 40th Anniversaries were one of the first Teles built at the Custom Shop and don't come up for sale too often.

    In all Keith's travels, he's managed to find only one other- which he bought to replace Clarence, which has been retired from touring use for awhile now. The new one has the original pickguard (traditional 2-pickup).

    3 pickups but no PU selector switch?

    Since the other two pickups have been removed and he only uses the bridge pickup, makes sense to not have the pickup selector in the way of the volume knob.
