Ah, I was 25 and on some tripped out neon new-wave meets electro-goth-metal journey which required me to have a guitar like this: Anyhow, times change, turning 31 soon, and just bought this closet-relic tele from a luthier I've known for a while: Tastes sure do change! Although i still like the same music as i used to, I'm very much aesthetically these days on a vintage or steampunk wavelength, buying antique furniture and the like. I'm going to be converting it into another esquire, white 3ply pickguard and a nice scatterwound pickup. Unsure on whether to go original or Eldred wiring, thoughts? Anyhow, i reckon these two will look really nice next to one another, a reckless rebel next to her classy aunt.
