    I had an original 1968 thinline for about 15 years that had been modded by the previous owner with Seymour Duncan’s, a stack humbucker in the neck with a coil tap switch that I referred to as “the fat switch,” and a way too hot rail pickup in the bridge. It was one of the best sounding guitars I’ve ever had. I loved it and was heartbroken when it got stolen shortly after moving to San Francisco in 1997. I’ve been thinking about that guitar ever since (loss is a funny thing). I just received this guitar and I love, love, love it. The Bardens are voiced to capture an authentic Tele tone only more so —— full and spanky. All the snap,crackle, and pop, you’d expect from a Tele but with real heft behind it. I know the Barden’s are an acquired taste for some, but they are doing a great job of filling that whole in my heart left by my 68 Tele.

    Here's one of mine, but it's Esquire-style :)

    Swamp Ash body, flamed roasted maple neck, Bigsby B16, Mastery bridge, Gotoh tuners, and Cavalier Nocaster Holy Grail pickup - wired up with a no-load tone pot.

    It's a real player with a broad range of good usable tone ;)

    Thanks, the Tuxedo is technically a "double esquire", the other a "NoCaster"!
