Hello Everyone,

I've Just signed up to today, so thought I would say hello.

I've always loved Telecasters, I learnt to play on a Squire Tele back in 1989 and owned a few over the years. After over 20 years of not playing, I built myself a Tele-partscaster 2 years ago, and have played it every day since.

My partscaster is the best Tele I've ever played, all genuine fender parts with custom shop Twisted-Tele pickups. I refinished the neck in Nitro, re-fretted & levelled the frets and once set up, it plays like a dream.

I've collected a few guitars over two years, including a very expensive Gibson Customshop LP 59 reissue, but its always the Tele I reach for first.

Here you go, in all her Candy Apple Red glory.

If you look carefully, you may notice I've used a 4 way switch. I have this so when position 2 or 3 are selected, the Bridge and Neck PUs are selected together either in Parallel or Serial. In serial, the PUs sound really hot. The Customshop twisted PUs are phenomenal, the neck has a Strat vide but the bridge is classic hot twang tele.
