    Thx! It's a '98 Buck Owens signature tele that popped up on Craigslist for a stupid low price and I was at the guys house with cash in hand an hour later. Stock it was all gold hardware and a god awful gold pickguard. I replaced all the gold (except for the tuners), got a clear pickguard. I put on a Bigsby B16, lollar bridge pu, duncan neck pu and a four way switch. It's a head turner when ever I pull it out of it's case at shows! :eek:

    Very nice looking guitar indeed. Switching to a plexi guard was a smart move. Congrats!

    Thanks! I was thinking of putting a "medicinal" cigarette in the neck pickup wiring route (that's now visible under the clear pickguard) with a "break glass in case of emergency" sticker :lol:
