Strikingly gorgeous! Congrats on that beauty.
What kind of pickguard is this ? White moto?
love of my life.
This is my first fender, i like it more than Player series. Damn lovely red
I love red guitars. I have more red ones than any other color. These two are a Candy Apple Red Tele Blacktop and Mystic Red American Standard Strat
My only two teles...the guitar that made me a Tele-man is the '52 AVRI Tele. It's been totally hot-rodded:
1) Charley McVay G-Bender
2) Joe Barden Danny Gatton pickups
3) treble bleed mod on volume control
4) Glendale compensated brass saddles
5) I sanded the lacquer from the neck for slicker playability...
The thing is an absolute monster. Not the lightest or easiest guitar to play but it's a fantastic sounding guitar. My only gripe is with the vintage fretwire...yuck. it's okay, but I greatly prefer 6105 fretwire or bigger. A re-fret is in its future...
My newest acquisition is the Paisley Roadworn. Totally different beast altogether from the '52, the '52 is a hot-rod rock machine that can pull off some modern country/blues here and there. The Paisley on the other hand is a total twang-machine! The neck is much beefier, the pickups have less output that the Bardens but tons of clarity and spank. Sounds more like a Tele should IMO. Not to mention, the thing is so resonant and light it feels like it could float away if I let it go. Don't get me wrong, the Bardens are freakin' amazing...they just sacrifice some of that vintage Tele spank for that extra horsepower. I'm blessed to have both. The guitar is nearly perfect, the only potential mods I'd like to do is to send the guitar in for McVay G bender, upgrade the saddles, treble bleed it, and install a dummy coil system to kill the 60 cycle. The Bardens are dead quiet and have spoiled me in that regard.
Not a great pic, was my Rock The Vote pic, with my I Voted sticker resting on it
You stripe that yourself?
I dig that. I would love to know what the jazz master pick up sounds like in there. Do you have any recordings?

Recently finished putting this one together. The neck is a USA '52 Fender factory replacement. Body is a '50s Road Worn that's super light and has one of the more recent, subtle lightly-worn finishes, as well as sort of a transitional mid-50s blonde look . I buffed it out a bit to give it more of a closet-classic look. Pickups are SD Antiquities, rest of the hardware is standard American Vintage parts bin stuff. It plays beautifully and I'm really happy with the way it turned out!
