    Good to be back in tele-land! What year is that Vibrolux, though...? It might be even more deserving of a post. Those things are killer!!

    Awesome! Looks a bit earlier than 2010... Or at least that bridge is the one Fender used until 2008. In 2008 they went to bent saddles and often but not always a Fender stamp on the plate. Is it a US10 or maybe a Z0 (2000) serial?

    The Vibrolux is a 1966. A NAD will be coming.

    Congrats on such a nice guitar and amplifier. Lake Placid Blue is my favorite color, as you can see in my avatar. I actually named this guitar Blue for obvious reasons. Your LPB looks to be of a more darker shade, but maybe it's just
    taking indoor pictures?

    Again congratulations on such a pair. By the way were you able to give them a whirl? Did you like what you heard?

    Welcome back to Tele ownership from another LPB fan. See my avatar - it's a MiM standard from about 2017.

    Haha.... Luv how you pretend the amp is just an afterthought.

    I think the amp should be in the front and in passing you could mention the Tele in the background. :)

    Z1 is 2001. It's got a little more vintage to it :) Great guitar.

    I’m still not sure of the guitar’s color.

    I believe that the amp needs to have the bias checked before I really put it to the test. Normally I would take a new vintage amp directly to my tech to check it out before using it. The amp does have new filter caps and a 3-prong plug. The blue cap are still there. Good.

    I don’t know what to do with the amp now with the lockdown. Guess that I need to learn how to bias an amp.
