Looks great! I've wanted to do P90's in a Tele. Who's are those and how you like 'em?
My natural finish tele is a Yamaha 311MS
Is that CC neck pup a Lollar? What bridge pickup do you have paired with it? I've been curious about a CC pickup in the neck, and what to pair with it. What kind of tones do you get with the CC? How fat is the tone, how warm?
Wow! I like it! That’s part Billy Gibbons tele, part fiddle ... a real guit-fiddle! And that neck! Does canary play like maple? Kinda looks like it.
Bowler of Brighton UK builder
Heavy as hell,superb fretboard,excellent frets
Fitted with AVI-s and LSL controls
Its for sale in the UK tooooooooo,just one too many that aint getting to see the light of day…due to a Gibbo infatuation
One year only '82-'83 Fender active humbuckers with TBX & MDX controls + 2 x Volume & 3 position LP style switch.
An amazing tonal palette for sure.
This thread needs more aged/reliced teles!
Okay ... it's your turn then
I don't have one, unfortunately ;(
edit: i'd love to, though, but i actually have a hard time finding pictures of nicely aged / worn / reliced natural finishes, to get an impression of how these finishes play out in the long run ..
I know this is an old thread, but I just found it and wanted to contribute. Here's a Tele I just finished with a great solid spalted maple body, finished with Tru Oil. I made it just the way I wanted with a Texas Customs Smooth Play bridge, Texas Special pickups and Sperzel locking tuners.
I don't think it's a breach of forum etiquette to post in club threads that have been dormant for a while. And I for one am glad you posted a pic of that spalted maple!
Here are some Leo-era G&L's in Natural…
2HG, are all 3 yours? And I'm not real savvy when it comes to G&Ls, but each of those looks to me like a mix of FMIC and G&L. Are they each modded to some degree?
Here's my '73 Tele Custom whose finish was stripped before I got it. I've since lightly stained and used tung oil on it.
I realise I haven't added mine to this thread.
The first is my Fender Roadworn Telecaster Natural Ash (2014) stripped by the previous owner who was a Springsteen nut. Luckily the grain is lovely. I picked this up cheaply locally I changed the pickups to CS Nocasters and swapped out the electronics. I alternate between black and white guards as I like them equally. It plays and sound wonderful especially into my 5e3.
The second is my G&L Tribute ASAT Classic. I found this cheap too. It is very well made, sounds and plays great works well as an alternative take on the Tele.
The third is my Vintage bass. I bought this many years ago. I wanted a Jazz bass to do some recording but this was put in my hands by the shop owner and he said it was one of the first promotion guitars in the country from China and it was half the price of even a Squier at the time so I snagged it. I'd love to have a Fender Jazz but this has stayed with me because it is so good.
MIM Fender Special Edition Swamp Ash with bridge changed to ashtray and headstock tree replaced with circular one. Also swapped out the pick guard with a 3-ply black/white/black one
Here's my 72 thinline RI
Here's my DY Telecaster Guitar,
It has a very light body of Polowina wood, and a 4 way switch, with humbucker in neck, with a push-push, tone control..
