    Mighty mite body, 95' - 52 reissue neck and a cavalier pickup turned out to be a solid combo for this one.

    This is my accidental tele. Bought the body on sale as an afterthought while I was piecing together my first Strat. Eventually, I accumulated enough parts to put it together. BG Pups P-90 with a Rockwind bridge pickup, each coil includes a special mixture made by a Voodoo priestess and the pups were blessed by a Buddhist monk to ensure no parasitic line noise from the karma mixing with the mojo. No extra charge.

    yeah, 2001 MIM JB std CAR AFAIK, YMMV, EIEIO

    upload may11 2016 213.JPG

    sometimes I think my ideal red would be somewhere between this CAR and fiesta red. A few times I have seen some MIM teles that looked sort of like the Coca Cola red, which I kind of liked.

    I would say this LP studio is pretty much red:

    changed out the Grovers that it came with a set of Klusons, because that's what it should look like, plus they turned out to be a functional improvement...5 year old guitar...


    and the reddish '85 SG, the ugly big headstock of the 80's and a P-94 in the neck...

    ...I'm not positive, but it looks like an aura leaked so hard out of your tele that it scratched the wall. was there a large display of the aurora borealis recently?

    Nah. Its a mix of bad lighting, cedar walls and probably artistic input from a couple of toddlers. ;)
