    I’ve used TPDRI for several years as a good resource of information although never posting, I just wanted to share my latest acquisition that i took a real chance buying online. Advertised as a Rice Custom 2007 all original accept for a fake decal on headstock. Information on removing the decal found on TDPRI worked perfectly. In fact it turns out to be Rice #132 finished in 2009 and originally shipped to Japan. I’m in the UK. The pick guard had been changed to top mounted neck pickup screw holes which I have changed back. The switching was originally 4 way but had been changed for standard switching. The saddles had been changed from Wilkinson swivel to Gotoh in tune. Chris Rice kindly authenticated the guitar through photos and I thank him for taking the time. I’ve been fortunate enough to own several American Fender and Custom Shop guitars, all well made and good sounding in there own right, but nothing I’ve owned has inspired me as much as the sound and feel of this telecaster with Don Mare Green Onions. How lucky am I ?

    Nice! That is my favorite combination of paint, pickguard and fingerboard, it looks great.
