Nice collection @Lonn! And that single tele is a knockout.
Thanks for the comments and questions! A few answers:
1. My favorite...Belle. Got her five years from a board member here and over at Squier-Talk who put her together. I unfortunately have not seen him around in far too long. Just plays and sounds so sweet!

Cool story behind this guitar from Ed: "Your guitar was 1 in 5 we made in 2015 in the T-style in either butterscotch or with a flame-top. They were made as prototypes for Derek St. Holmes who had wanted one from us and ultimately took one out on the road with him when he went on tour with Brad Whitford for their reunion." Mine was not one Derek took and kept...to my advantage!
Great thread, I love tele family pics!
@Treynor so you're saying that the one to the right of Belle has a Jazzmaster pickup? The one with the black cover set against the "blackdrop" of a blackguard? I guess I couldn't tell because all the black gives it a sort of stealth mode. I relate to that. It is, in that respect at least, like my aforementioned tele with the P-90 neck pickup.
Speaking of which, I said I would post my family pic and didn't, so here's the family pic/couch shot...
All my teles are Logan Customs. @harpdog has already posted about his, in Coral Red, that pic above is of my five Logan teles. For that matter, the two guitars hanging above the couch are Logan Customs, too. I guess you could kinda sorta count that tele style acoustic/electric in the family as well. The one on the right is Bob Logan's design, the Challenger model.
The teles are line up left to right on the couch in order of acquisition, from 2008 to 2019. You can see on the far left the one that has that "stealth mode" P-90 in the neck.
Amazing collection, @LGOberean! I'm going to have to do some research on Logan Customs. I'm not familiar with them, and looks like I need to.
Is your black Suhr a relic type finish?
No. It is real wear. That guitar is a beast, and always works for any gig. It is like a security blanket for me. I had that guitar made in 2007 and used it extensively at gigs mostly outdoors along the Gulf Coast beaches. Seated and standing gigs. The heat, humidity, sweat and salt air is tough, even on poly. The finish cracked where my sweaty forearm sits. It continued to crack and my sweat got under the finish, separating the finish from the guitar. Over 14 years, it ended up being a good size area.
What you see is where the finish stopped lifting recently, and I wanted to make it stable. The guitar is pretty beat up, and I decided to spray clear poly over the area to see if it will stop. Not sure yet, but I don't really care. The salt even put a little corrosion on the SS frets, but micro mesh pads take care of that.

All parts teles in various states of completion
Wow! I would *almost* trade my real family for these Tele families you all are posting! Incredible!
I tend not to buy lots of the same type of guitar. I usually prefer a more pronounced variation in sound and feel between instruments rather than the subtleties between two of the same. That said, I did recently buy a 2nd Telecaster (the Custom) after 11 years of having just one.
What pup is in the bridge on that Tele on the right? I don't see any poles
It does have poles, but they're very dark for some reason. I think it's a Nocaster pickup which was what it came with.
