    Just got this used but new to me 2011 52RI Telecaster Hot Rod. Just got through setting it up including adjusting pickups, neck and action. Love the neck on this guitar! Digging the great tones too especially the mini humbucker and using the neck and bridge pickups together.

    I like the mini bucker versions of those - like you have - better than the full size.

    Nice score.

    Congrats.. Nice grain on yours.. Love the mini Humbucker but the modified broadcaster isn't a slouch either.

    sweet guitar -I'm digging that straight grain too. A couple years ago, I went to record some songs-that model guitar was there and I kept mine in the cases and used it. it was a good sounding and playing guitar for sure

    Indeed - I'm a recent convert to having a Tele with the mini-hum in the stable. Congratulations on the addition.
