    Greeting everyone.I've been playing for years and always consider myself as a "strat" guy.Had some teles down these years but never been able to "bond" with any of those guitars.The past 2-3 years I was thinking to give it another go and placed an order to a small -local- luthier shop.
    I have to say I was blown away with the final result.It represents what Leo had in mind when he designed the Tele -imo at least- : a simple built,kinda affortable for any musician,a "weapon" of choice for every situation.I think my strat guitars are going to stay in their cases for a long time from now on.

    Welcome aboard. I’m not able to look at your pics, for some reason.

    I'm going to get very nitpicky because I really like that guitar! The pickguard is immaculate, the neck shape looks so cool, the relic job looks awesome... The only thing I don't like is the square jack cover. But if that's the only thing wrong that's not saying much! Of course that's all personal preference, I just happen to like the traditional round ones.

    Welcome to the forum! Beautiful guitar and don't be afraid to post more of your collection!

    Dude, that looks so cool. A cross between classy and mean. With black on black I'm always torn between single ply 5 hole black pickguard or the 3 ply with the white sandwhich. Both look great. The brass saddles just look cool too. Welcome to an awesome forum.

    Awesome looking Tele. I never bonded with a Tele before I started hanging around here. I play a Tele as much as a Strat these days. Just gotta have both.
    Welcome!
