    LOL...yeah, I guess you could say that. I'm a lefty that was forced to learn to play right handed as a kid. I never developed a controllable fretting hand vibrato or great right hand picking, so after about 29 years of playing right handed and thinking about switching over to lefty, I finally said screw it and picked up the lefty MIJ 52RI in Apr '04 last year on ebay and have been playing lefty ever since. I've got great vibrato now, but just need to wood shed on the lefty hybrid picking for a while. I can tell though that I will be better lefty player than a righty in the long run.

    Just a plain ole 97 B-Bender P/G in Alder. Everything is stock but the bridge.

    My backup is a MIM standard Ash.

    I would say it's "Surf Pearl". This is a refinished body so maybe the attempt on this job was
    to create the illusion of a "Surf Green" that has mellowed over the years.

    Here's my 1987 MIJ 62RI, a lot of people seem to like the 3-tone burst and I'm no exception! The body is a 2003 MIJ for my partscaster project - may go for a humbucker at the neck on this one as the body is already routed for it. Pretty cool chair too, eh? :)

    It's a Barden bridge. Got it from Guitar Heaven just before Barden started having problems. It's been working well for me :D

    I Hope The Wife Doesn't Find Out

    I can't believe I've actually stooped to trafficking in homemade Telecaster porn, but here we go...

    [​IMG]

    My Telecaster Family (left to right): 1984 MIA 3-color Sunburst, 2003 MIM Nashville Deluxe, 2003 CIJ Antigua, early 1990s MIJ Blue Flower, 2002 CIJ Paisley and 2004 Squier Telecaster Custom II. The shot makes the Nashville's CAR finish look orange and reveals an obvious wood seam in the sunburst that is generally not noticed by the naked eye.

    Here's a shot where the colors are better:

    And here's a closer shot of the three freaks:

    Sadly, purchasing multiple Telecasters does not improve one's Telecaster playing ability.
