That's pretty badass.

Hi shupe... thanks for chiming in!
Nice! I almost got one when they were being blown out for $399. They were gone before I was able to pay
I just added a third sound clip.
This sound clip is for STRUMMING tones, using an ascending bridge segment from a composition of mine.
There are 5 sections to this sound clip
1- Neck pickup
2- Neck & Bridge combined
3- Middle Pickup
4- Middle & Bridge combined
5- Bridge pickup
A couple of minor upgrades... slanted switch cover and steel switch knob. (Rutters)
That does sound really great. I love the note bloom from that Yamaha amp!
You must have lucked out on the neck. Mine was too large for me to handle, so I replaced it with a Baja neck that was actually smaller and more comfortable to me (lost 11 oz of weight too).
I guess the necks varied a bit with this model. Enjoy!
Great and unique pickup combo.
A bit offtopic: you never fail to deliver fantastic pictures the lighting, the sharpness and the details are very good, what is your photography gear? My guitar photoshoots are always dull haha.
CHarg... yes, the Yamaha THR10 has fantastic clean tones. And this guitar really sings with this amp!
I don't use the overdrive options much at all. I have a Preset button set to use the Bass setting with some reverb and compressor. I use that preset almost all the time.
I do occasionally engage some Chorus, Delay, and/or Tremolo EFX, but usually I'm just clean with reverb & compressor.
Hi Jerry... most of my shooting these days is with the Lumix GX8 camera and Leica 12-60 zoom lens. It is a fantastic kit.
More importantly, however, I have decades of professional commercial photography experience behind my current retirement status.
The camera brand/type/model is far less important than who is setting things up and whose hands are operating it. Much like guitar music!
Another twist taken today... swapped the maple for rosewood.
I really do like a maple board! But, I love rosewood.
Especially on a dark guitar.
The original maple neck is not going to go away... it's a really awesome neck.
I just need to find a great body that it would go well with... then, you know, more pickups, yada yada. It never ends, does it!
There must have been some kind of dramatically weird fluke with your Baja '50s neck or Triple Tele neck..
I compared/measured/weighed my Triple Tele neck with my Baja '50s neck and find that my Triple Tele neck is just slightly less bulky than my Baja '50s neck AND at 1.4 lbs is .06 lbs. lighter than my Baja '50s neck.
I can't imagine how your two Tele necks could possibly be 11 oz. (.7 lbs) different in weight? Fender locking tuners can add a good bit of weight vs vintage tuners, but both the Triple Tele and the Baja '50s have vintage tuners.
Among my sixteen Tele and Strat necks, my lightest neck is the Triple Tele at 1.4 lbs. with Vintage tuners... and the heaviest neck is 1.76 lbs (Amer Pro rosewood board with Fender locking tuners). The average of them all is 1.5 lbs.
Man, the neck tone in your Lead clip is killer. They all sound great, but that one made me covetous, haha!
Triple Tele 8.8 lbs 8 lbs 12.8 oz
Triple Tele 8.06 lbs 8 lbs 1.0 oz* (w/ Baja Neck)
Very strange, indeed!
That guitar is badass and sounds amazing! Congrats and thanks for sharing!
Hi John... thanks for chiming in. I bought this guitar to be a test bed for using Tele bridge pickups in the middle and neck positions. I very much enjoy the tones it has with these Fender Nocasters, but over time I'm going to be trying some different Tele BRIDGE pickups, especially in the neck and middle positions.
First pickup variation will be to try Rob's new Cavalier "50/51" bridge pickup in the neck position of this Triple Tele. That should happen by this weekend. I'll review and make a sound sample.
I should have known it was only a matter of time before that thing got a neck swap.
Black on black with rosewood is on of my all time favorites. I'm jealous. Should have grabbed one of
these during the blowout sale.
heffus! You know me too well, my friend.
We're right in step with each other on the looks.
And, I never would have bought one of these had I not wondered: "what would a Tele bridge pickup sound like in the middle and neck positions?"
My Blonde White Nashville got the Triple Tele maple neck in the swap. The Nashville looks great with the maple neck.
Sounds great, and very interesting too. Thank you for providing so many sound samples. In an alternative universe, Leo might have created that... It's certainly got a lot to offer.
