Sold off quite a few in the last months, but GAS has gotten the better of me.
These are the acquisitions from the latter part of 2008...
It's a Bride of Frankenstein of sorts, a 80's Japan Fender Squier Bullet Neck that's aged well, a butterscotch candy color neck on a 20th Anniversary Squier Standard Body in my favorite tele body color, banana pudding color I think?, with a Black/white/black WD guard, I can't explain why but this guitar works for me and has been my favorite the last few years.
I know it's not officially a Tele (please don't be a player-hater), but it's in my collection because she just looked so nice and I wanted to share the photos here, as well as Jerry Donanhe was at the store for a Peavey seminar so I could not resist, she was a very affordable and JD signed her.

The mods sound really professional, Brett.
I suspect buying the raw guitar and attaining mastery of all the fine circuitry is the best way to achieve the ultimate guitar, since the production ones are all wired roughly the same regardless of price.
Sometimes I can get my mind firmly around all the intricate concepts, and what the mean to the actual played guitar's sound, but sadly sometimes I cannot.
That is one of the most pleasing to look at MIM Std FSR bodies I have seen, and I've looked at many dozens of them. Congrats.
