a couple of mine - ony do em sans plate if i get monstered - i like a guard
Best pic I have for now.
Workhorse tele with just a Little 59 pickup in the bridge....total Keef.
That's pretty neat. First time I've heard of those. Do they hold up well, how long have you been using the neck with those on it?
Here's three of my builds. One each winter for the last three years.
No build planned this winter, but I've got a Warmoth Fatback Goncalo Alves/Pau Ferro neck ordered to go on that first clear finished Hybrid Tele-Strat!
It's the first time I tried them so I can't testify as to their durability. That particular build was for a music festival and is hanging in a display case with autographs all over it. A friend has used them several times and told me that they're really durable on maple and ebony, not so much so on rosewood.
Well, kind of a Tele....definitely no pick guard
I wondered about using those on rosewood since it tends to dry out some. I oil rosewood necks about once a year if the guitar sees a lot of action and thought that might be tough on those transfers. Maple would probably work best with a couple of clear coat over it.
My first and only build so far...
I wouldn't recommend clear coating them. I did for that build, but that guitar will likely never get played. When applied without clear coat you really can't feel them, but after a couple of coats the edges become raised. I can see that being a bit problematic. They're really pretty but I don't think I'd use them on anything that is going to get any serious playing time. YMMV. While my buddy loves them, I'm not really sold on them. I'd love to hear more input from people who have used them a few times.
Wow! That is beautiful! I think I'm in love....
My latest - mint 86 Contemporary with double locker
Mine. I call it a Super Tele.
You win! I would opt for a hardtail, but everything else about that guitar is so perfect. Even the burst is utterly perfect, not that thick black border stuff. Perfect quilting, tele pickup in the center, mount rings, Gretsch style pickup in the rear, Thinline with binding in the F hole....damn, you have it covered. I'm truly jealous.
Not in the same league as that, but the specs are what I had in mind all along for my current partscaster project… rosewood neck, no pick guard, two covered neck pups and a full sized bucker in HSS config - AND a Tremolo bridge! I'm drooling!!
I'm amazed how many fine examples there are - of non pick guard Teles here. Not as rare as I thought.
1967 Telecaster with transparent pickguard
Here is mine..Tru-oil finish
That Creston is just pure awesomeness.
