    6 1/2" neck radius

    posted the new girl last week, but i'm up too early, so here they are.
    not as impressive as the collections of skully and others, but still my loves.

    if these pics load properly, the last one is "the new girl"; once a mim thinline,
    now featuring a totally stripped body and neck, open grain re-ranch re-fin in butterscotch with a light amber tint on top, a tort pickguard, and the crowning glory: a custom made reverse headstock "V" neck with rolled edges and 6 1/2" radius. about 5 lbs. 13 oz. total.

    yes, i'm sure about the neck radius. like i said, it is custom made.

    Oh, there's NO way Aero would ever leave my possession! Simply love it.
    Best guitar I've ever played on, no question. :D

    Here is one of mine, I made it back in the early 80s when I was just a teenager, with basic hand tools and a jigsaw, no router, no spray gun. Played long and hard for many years, stored badly for alot of years and now restored.

    my "wife" is pretty good about letting me do what and go where i want to.
    i mostly go to the guitar store for lap dances lately, but it doesn't raise as many eyebrows as having two girls playin' bumpittybounce in a red leather booth.

    My '95 Aluminum Telecaster:

    [​IMG]

    I swapped out the pick plate because I think the black brings out the purple more, otherwise stock.

    I saw that someone else here has one of these. The production numbers I read on this particular guitar put it at 33 in purple, with only 100 Teles total.

    I am actually considering selling it...

    Hi. I'm Steve. I'm a new guy here!
    Here's my '71 Tele. I got it in '84 with a terribly beaten up body. The previous owner had used a chisel to make humbucker sized holes in it. You could see the edges peeking out from under the bridge! It came with the original bridge and ashtray, and a standard pickup arrangement, but big ugly holes underneath.
    Over the years, she sported a Washburn Wonderbar whammy, then the present StewMac bridge, various pickguards, and a third pickup, which I routed out rather unskillfully myself!
    Finally a couple of years ago, I got a Mexican Fender body, and made it into what you see today. The humbucker in the pic has been replaced with a GFS repro Full-Range humbucker. The Tele's been my go-to guitar since I got it, and is one of the flagships of the collection (currently 14 guitars.)

    Oh, those others are a 78 Guild D-25, a Silvertone Longhorn (Korean), 71 Goldtop Deluxe, and 2004 50th anniversary Strat. You're guitar guys - Someone was gonna ask.:lol:

    Here is my little early 90's MIM Tele alomg with it's brother, a late 90's MIA '62 Strat RI.
    The Tele was modified and has RS electronics, a Duncan Broadcaster/Vintage Tele setup with a vintage style bridge.

    Not a whole lot of G&L love in this thread (that I've seen). They're absolutely AMAZING instruments. Here's mine. 2009 G&L ASAT Classic Tribute series. The pickups are different than a typical Tele. Less twang, more rock. Perfect for the blues/rock style I claim to play.

    Here's my '91 MIJ Tele.
    Bought it in November and now just happy :)
    Great, sweet sound and good condition, super comfortable neck.
    It has a real twang!
    Love it :)

    OK, I'll play:

    Fender Squier Series Telecaster, MIM circa 1994, in Arctic White. No mods except for the signatures, which are by the three original members of the Presidents of the United States of America.
