    How do the angled and non-angled bridge pickups differ, tone-wise?

    Not a great deal, El Lobo.... I guess?....

    the red one has a 4 way and a TBX tone stack and the brown one is a 3 way and two volumes and no tone.....

    both different animals..... with different brand pickups.... very hard to compare....though similar I guess...

    the angled bridge is homage to Leo to keep the fender Tele theme..... the parallel pickups is too much like those other makers I don't need to mention here...

    there are no rules for PU placement.. dare to be different...:)

    I posted these in Sept. of 2011 but they were deleted by the fine folks at photobucket so I'm reposting.

    Made by my friend Jeremy Parks out of Las Vegas.
    Alder body, flame maple neck in a '52 style boat profile
    nitro finish
    Fralin custom pair, with a splittable humbucker

    This guitar has so many voices, it's astounding.

    My G&L ASAT Classic Buesboy 90 [sic]. One of my favorite all-time guitars. It's hard to see in the pix, but the finish is a deep metalflake black.

    I would love to hear how those Imperials sound. Do you have any sound clips?

    Twelve-string!

    Tele 12 - 2017 - 05.jpg

    A 12-string from a Reid & Sons kit won on eBay for $75 shipped. The full story is here: http://www.tdpri.com/threads/kit-guitar-12-string-tele-as-seen-on-ebay.587407/

    It's fantastic, everything I wanted/missed in a 12-string electric. I still don't quite understand how it turned out so well, as it was my first kit/'build' attempt. Even the tuners are still working flawlessly. Neck is a little chunkier than I like but on the other hand I like the solidity of it.

    And only 6.25 lbs. (wood is paulownia). The slight neck dive is remedied with a wide, suede-backed strap.

    A pro friend who gigs with a 12-string played it and immediately offered me $500 for it! I said it was not for sale. (Do I hear $1,000? ...probably sell it for that! LOL) He wants me to make one for him. I might do it.
