    Finishing up a 65’ Dakota Red MJT Tele. I went with the roasted alder body as I only have ash ones now. Deciding on pickups too. Narrowed it down to the Manlius 67’s or the Rodeos.

    Here is the latest MJT I put together:
    lake placid blue light relic alder body + maple/RW neck with Fralin JM pickups

    Light, resonant, only need to adjust to that tremolo bar - but definitely a keeper!

    You can't go wrong with Manlius pickups.

    Have you tried the Rodeo set? I keep watching your 67 set vids and like the tone.

    my number one strat has an alder MJT body. i posted a pic of it on here a while back. i really love the job he did on the finish, and i got a good price on it. after having played it for a couple years, it is really starting to take on a nice worn in patina. i'm very happy with it. will definitely get something from him again

    I haven't played the Rodeo yet. I really dig the 56WG set though!

    MJT Alder body in Fiesta Red, Musikraft birdseye neck(9.5", 6105, deep C), Rutters Bridge w/ steel saddles, can't remember the pickup builder's name offhand. I didn't assemble this one - picked it up off a Reverber-"The Guitar Doctor". It's like the Les Paul of my Tele brood, arguably the most sustain and resonance outta this one.
