    I am "patiently" waiting for Monday, when my new Peavey Generation EX (butterscotch of course) is set to be delivered. Beams.

    I guess a Lecastratto would be ideal to hit those high-register notes.

    I agree 100%



    In that case, I have a "ROLEX" I can sell you.
    Not made by Rolex, or authorized by Rolex, but it sure looks like one. ;)

    Rubbish. If it was made after 1965 it isn't a Fender anyway, whatever's written on it. And as long as it's what Leo Fender designed and named, it's a Telecaster wherever it came from.

    Ibanez Tele Custom

    I bought this one new off the wall in 1976. It's the only one I've kept all these years. Stayed in tune, light, great sound. A few mods from the early days...Dimarzio pickups neck and bridge (both stock pups were anemic). The bridge had to be modded as the original pup was smaller than a standard tele pup (enlarge opening, drill two new holes). I painted the truss rod cover Black as it looked out of place White. There's a Black cap on the switch also. Added two mini-toggles for phase and tap. Changed to straplocks. Yes, those are speed knobs. At the time, I thought they looked better.

    My last Voodoo tele actually has a Fender CIJ body but the rest are Seymour Duncan 5/2s, Glendale saddles, LAYLI pickguard, Voodoo sourced parts. All put together by Rick at Voodoo who is my local guitar builder.

    I have a black Electra tele copy from 1972. A humbucker in the neck and single coil in the bridge. Vintage style ashtray bridge but the strings were top load.
