    I traded my Epiphone Les Paul Custom for this today at GC. They were having a scratch and dent sale so I got it even trade. There is a small chip you can barely see.
    The neck is really thin for a tele which I actually love. Stock pickups sounded pretty good. I had one of these back in the 90’s and regretted selling it so I’m so happy to have one again. Reunited and it feels so good.

    Nice guitar, my friend. It looks like you have a comfy place, as well.

    As I mentioned in another 72 Custom thread, I was really considering getting one of these, as I love the sound of the Fender humbucker, and the sound of both pickups too.

    Listen:


    Very happy with my Michael Kelly Tele, but I can dream, can't I? ;)

    Congrats! My 72 Custom has become my go-to guitar. I'm still a big fan of traditional teles, but the the 72 gives me that extra bit of low end and fullness, which is ideal for the styles I work in. The stock neck PuP is a bit muddy but I'll eventually upgrade the volume pot to a 500k and see if that improves it. Had I the money for an original WRHB, I'd swap out the stock.

    Nice guitar! I really like those.

    I had one in the late '70s, it was one of my favorite guitars.
