Finally got the Tele of my dreams today! A Custom Shop ‘51 Tele in Nocaster Blonde. I’ve had a baja Tele in the past, which was a really great guitar, but this just blows everything I’ve played out of the park.
Playing it through a 65 RI Princeton Reverb with Celestion Gold speaker, and it just gives you that amazing haunting Campilongo tone (without any of his talent of course haha). Sounds super sweet! Playing even put my dog to sleep, not sure if that’s an insult or a compliment! Definitely think this is the end of my tele buying journey.. for now.
Hope you guys like it!

Looking good! Enjoy your new tele:)

Which pickups did they install?
Thank you! On the specs it’s listed as “Custom Shop Hand-Wound '50/'51 Blackguard”, not sure if these are specific to these guitars or if they feature on other models! They sound really great though. Bridge is growly without any ice pick, and the neck sounds feathery, not too fat. Putting it through a Morning Glory (a la Julian Lage) really beefs them up like a boost!

Congratulations! As that's been my #1 guitar for the last year, in my opinion you've made an excellent choice!

Congrats, she's a beauty! And those pickups are also in other models.
I have a couple guitars with that set and I find them to be my second favorites, next to TV Jones of course ;)
