    rose 7.jpg 03 60s Classic Mexican (Rosewood look) - Beautiful guitar with excellent electronics (CTS) but then Fender adds sh#$$y pickups - just didn't sound good. Replaced with USA pickups and now it sounds like a tele should!

    Also got this weird fish: 2006 Fender American FSR Chambered Telecaster (technical a deluxe because has the DZ serial # but doesn't have the body contour or binding.)

    I just posted earlier about finding a beauty like that... where did you get it and for how much, if I may ask?

    2005 MIM Standard Telecaster... just got her from a guy on Craigslist last week, only guitar I've played for a week and a half now! Now I see why I should have had one sooner...

    My number one guitar. The first 'proper' guitar I ever bought. My Mexican Telecaster:

    [​IMG]

    The guitar I'd run into a burning building for. It's so simple, but so perfect in tone and feel and everything. I bought it with dings and gouges and stuff in it, but it only made me love it more. Its 'proper'. It's had a life. The Hot Rails in the bridge came with it, and over time I've proper come to love it, as now the variation in tone I can get is fantastic, and gives it just the bit of extra growl.

    I love my Jazzmaster. I love my Les Paul. I love my Strat. But this. This one is my baby! It may not be the most expensive, or the rarest, but I wouldn't swap it for anything.

    Wow! That's gorgeous! I love the dark neck (is it just a black headstock and rosewood fretboard, or a dark wood neck?) going into the black guard!! Man. I tend to prefer maple necks, but one day I may end up picking up a neck made of exotic dark wood just for this look!

    Yes, black headstock and rosewood board. Gotta have one of each!

    My latest build, just finished this yesterday. Fender Classic 50's neck, Custom Shop Twisted Tele set and a killer body made by Logan custom guitar parts. I call it the Red Bandana telecaster!

    After almost 20 years I own an electric guitar again. Will be exciting to learn to play some again!

    2015(16?) MIM standard Telecaster, nothing flashy or expensive, but so glad to have it.

    My Squier "nocaster". I've put this one in before, but not since I refinished it from the original black. Once it was a modern Affinity.

    My Edwards TE100CTM in lake placid blue. I love this finish. It's a bit brighter than the Fender Japan's OLB. Neck pickup is a Schecter Monstertone, but I have already replaced it with a Peter Florance TE60 neck. She sounds wonderful.
