    Hi,
    I've been a Tele player for quite a few years now. But feel like now I have finally qualified to start a thread! I picked up the following at an estate sale this week... apart from 1960 case, seems to be pretty original, more pics to come. :)

    I should've said I've been a long time member over at the UMGF, but figured they'd just kick me over to tdpri, if I got too excited about an electric!

    I read and write here and over on UMGF. I think the folks in both places would both enjoy seeing pictures of that Telecaster.

    Oh wow, that's an exceptional find. Congratulations doesn't seem a sufficient word!

    I hope you have a '50s tweed to put that through..
