    This is me playing Johnny Hiland's "Barnyard Breakdown" on my 1967 tele.

    This guitar is wonderful in its current state, but I do plan on restoring it to the original parts eventually. The original owner changed the bridge, tuners, and removed the cover to the neck pickup. However, he kept all of the original parts. I got it from the original owner a few years ago, but every time I go to switch everything, I play it and change my mind! Haha.

    Thank you, decker! Working on Johnny's stuff always teaches me a ton, and this one has been on my to-do list for quite a while. It was just such a beast to get started on! Haha.

    Fine playing. Tone is excellent. Maybe you should leave the guitar alone..

    I enjoyed it.
