    Okay, guys, thanks, but this beard business is getting embarrassing. :oops: I'm not even comfortable getting my picture taken (for obvious reasons :eek:), so let's just move on...

    Glad you like the strap, littlewing.

    I'm with you on this one, John, Strats have too many controls and they get in the way.

    I also looked long and hard at G&Ls. Played an ASAT Classic and a couple of ASAT Tributes. Never played a BluesBoy. The neck radius and profile on G&Ls are just a bit different to my hand. Not bad, just different. so I kept looking.

    I was looking for a Deluxe Blackout Tele to get my hands on when I discovered Bob's eBay ad, and the rest, as they say, is history.

    You're right, Tele's rule...and Gibbie players drool! :p

    My wife took a picture of me one Christmas filling out Christmas cards, with me decked out in a red stocking cap, specs on the bridge of my nose and a red sweatshirt. Looked like I was making a list and checking it twice...Tried to find it to post here, but Beth must have it on a disc somewhere. So I chose this pic because it shows my beard grown out more.

    Yeah, I’ve heard them all. I’ve got a list of lines friends and family have used, including...

    “Look, it’s Leon Russell!”

    “Ladies and gentlemen...the fifth Oak Ridge Boy.”

    “It’s the long lost Bellamy Brother!”

    “Oh my goodness...it’s Jesus, the *later* years!”

    “It’s Father Time!” (My youngest daughter came up with that one.)

    “It’s Gandalf the Gray!”

    And yes, “It’s Santa Claus.” I’ve definitely heard that one before, even on this forum.

    And I don’t mind. Twice during the Christmas season, on two separate occasions I had kids come up to me, put their hand on my knee like they wanted up in my lap, and then they would just start right in giving me their wish list!

    I would look at them very earnestly, listen intently, smile and nod, but never say a word. And when they were satisfied they’d walk back over to their parents. And I’d look at those parents and whisper, “I ain’t promisin’ a thing!” :lol:


    :eek: $200+ for a custom guitar strap?!? :eek: I *know* David wouldn’t charge that much! When I gave him the first $20 for materials he said “That should cover it.” I still don’t know if he wants to do it, but I’d be mighty surprised if he charged that much.

    Yeah, that was definitely meant as a good-natured razz.

    Truth be told, I really love my friend's 335 (vintage burst). It's not a high priority on my "Guitars that I want" list, but in the if-money-were-no-object category, I'd probably buy me a 335.

    John, a week ago today you said that you would be getting your Logans in "next week." Then yesterday, in a post talking about Strats and G&Ls, you said

    I am assuming that your reference to your "old guitar" is a reference to the Swamp Ash. So, did they arrive safe and sound? Sure would like to hear more about them, how they feel and play and sound.

    Hey folks,I'm gettin' my guitars tomorrow. :D
    I hope they come in the morning so I can mess with them.

    The BluesBoy is an axe I've wanted for a while.

    I'll have the same neck pup in mine (Seth Lover) but mine is lighter,has belly & arm cuts,a birdseye strat neck,a 1 piece ultra light swamp ash body,and has 2 different 'buckers,a blade single coil,and a REAL P-90 in the bridge.
    I'm only going to use the parallel 'bucker & the P-90 sounds.

    1-Seth Lover
    2-Seth & P-90
    3-Seth & parallel 'bucker
    4-parallel 'bucker
    5-P-90

    She used to have G&L Classic pups & a 4 way.

    As I write this, John, most of the morning is gone. I hope you got your wish, that your Logans came this morning, and that you have had and will have time to "mess with them," as you put it. :p Actually, now that I think of it, if you got your wish we probably won't hear from you for a while. But that's okay. Believe me, around here, we understand NGD. ;)

    We are, however, looking forward to pics and reviews when you get the chance.

    Mighty purdy geetars, John! That Swamp Ash has a beautiful grain pattern, and those Birdseye Maple necks are just gorgeous!

    You've given us lots of great pictures of them, and I'm grateful...I *think*! :p

    Viewing the Teles of others helps in living out the fantasy desire to have a whole bevy of beautiful Teles in my own collection. But the only downside to all the great pics of these beautiful guitars is the inevitable GAS pains. This can lead to either fulfillment or a lust for more.

    No wonder they call it "Tele porn"!!! :twisted:

    Hey, have y’all seen Bob’s new Thinlines? Two of his new gallery guitars are Thinlines (see http://logancustoms.blogspot.com/ for specs and prices). Here are the pics.

    [​IMG]

    Bob sent me photos of the Alder Thinline (the first one above) in a couple of emails, the first on Monday afternoon as a work in progress and the finished product yesterday morning.

    So what do y’all think? I like the “lightning bolt” okay, and I *really* like that Coral Red color, but as for cutouts I really prefer the script “L” and the vintage Honey Blonde color is beautiful too.

    Of course on that same "blogspot" page Bob has the pic of his other Thinline, the Vintage Blonde with the lightning bolt cutout.

    finally took my Logan out for a real test drive today. Jammed w/ the people I jam w/ once a weak.

    played and sounded great. good thing I had a 3inch strap b/c it started to feel heavy.

    I actually like the wilkinsons, maybe in a couple years I will upgrade but for now these will be great.

    I'm currently saving up for a peavey blues delta

    we play normally funk and blues.

    my setup was epi valve jr combo w/ a tubescreamer and wah. I run a very simple pedal train but everything sounded great

    and just in case you guys forgot which Logan is mine :)

    I bought the white blonde northern ash guitar that was on his "in stock" page last week. Looking forward to it. It should arrive on Tuesday.

    Thanks for the pictures and information.

    Good to hear from you. Glad you had that beauty out for others to see and hear. She was well received, I'll bet.

    My strap is 2-½" wide, but it's comfortable. I almost never sit down when I play, whether noodling around, practicing or performing. But I can generally play for about an hour or more at a time.

    I'm quite happy witht the Wilkinson pups in mine as well, especially the P-90 in the neck. I have no plans to change *anything* to my mahogany Logan Tele.

    My setup is as basic as it gets. I plug straight in to my Crate and just go. There are 3-4 usable effects on the amp, and I just go with what that setup gives me. And to my unsophisticated ear, it sound quite nice.

    And no, littlewing, I will never forget that Red Coral beauty of yours, but thanks for posting the pic again. I never get tired of seeing her.

    Hello, Matt, and welcome to both the TDPRI forum and this club/thread. Looking forward to hearing more from you. And let us know when that White Blonde comes in. Give us a review and some pics when you can.

    I like the pup setup on the 'lightning bolt' model and the look of the single coil cut. When I first called Bob, I asked if he was doing Thinlines. Unfortunately, I was ahead of the game and got another Logan Custom T-style. I'll post up some pics and stats soon. Thanks for the invite Larry!
