    I've been playing this tele several hours now an I understand the pickguard is not everybody's cup of tea. I'm sure I'll change it because that's what I do. But for now I'm really enjoying it. The raised longhorn is great to rest your hand on while playing. Practice Sunday can't wait for band response. Heck we may write a song about it.

    Do not, I repeat do not remove the guard! It is a sign! It is the one thing that people will remember and could catapult you and your band to stardom!

    Seriously, the guard is very cool especially since you got the guitar that way.

    I have no idea it looks like T.S. Whoever that is,I really want to remove it but it's in permanent marker an will probably look worse if I take it off. This sounds weird but I tried to find out who the original owner was to see if they may want it back. I don't want to loose the guitar but someone made this guitar theirs an I hate they lost it. I had to re solder the input jack prob why I got it so cheap an who ever sold it to the pawnshop probably got nothing for it.

    The p/g responded well to some ZZ top today. Might be a Texas thang

    :lol: I've seen some pic's of Billy G playing an 'Esquire' with a Long Horn emblem affixed to the body rather than the p/g so you may be channeling the Rev!;)
