my squier in yellow natural...
That is a Handsome Tele! The rosewood fretboard really looks good with the natural body and the blackguard.
You've seen this one before but not with the Ibanez.
5 pound 2 ounce 1 piece USACG ash body
With One Inch thick USV-1 quartersawn maple neck, USA Custom Guitars.
This one needs some playing in. The quartersawn has an ability to fight back against a set of 11-49s, so you have to plan ahead on the setup:
6-32'd Joe Barden bridge assembly, Fender original vintage bridge pickup wired right to the jack:
Sounds great for Electronic/Johnny Marr sounds.
I'll shave a bit more off the heel, it is still fat in that dimension.
There is NOTHING wrong with a husky ash body; at least from what I can hear.
Bori's tofee pickguard
Boris, I like very much the shape you use for your pickguards, can't recall if you cut them or are available somewhere, I think I asked before but can't find it right now.
What's the colour and material of the pickguard? I love it!
Just learned of this forum today . When I learn how to do it , I will post a photo of my leftie Rosewood Tele . Was pleased to see one leftie in this thread .
Some are from scratch, but this one is a recycled Stew Mac appliance white stock 5 hole tele pickguard that has been reshaped and sanded smooth, then shot with Krylon Fusion # 2339 Blonde Shimmer. If I remember right, I did those a year ago.
The non-standard shapes are derived from a french curve and are subjected to the scrutiny of all the smarty-pants professional designers in my family. The ones you see are the "survivors".
Thanks for the compliments, I do appreciate that.
lovin the look of these guys, i have a natural '72 thinline RI. anyone know where i can get a black replacement PG for it? i love that look!
This is my very first build. Chambered ash, Lindy Fralin, etc.
I got mine from and ebayer "aiguitars". He does excellent work. I ordered a 1-ply and I had to wait about a week for it cut and then shipped. Top notch and a perfect fit. I doubt I ever go back to the white pearl guard.
that's my half a cent!
Tommy is winning me over to the merits of a Thinline guitar. This bookmatched hog with birdseye pale maple cap sounds very nice indeed.
Here, I forgot to take some pictures of the back. This light mahogany is just a kaleidoscope of color, it is better than the maple for gazing purposes.
'07 American Series:
love this american tele!
Thanks, me too! Aesthetically I'm more into 50's and 60's looks, but this is my*#1, it just feels amazing to play and it's really light. I actually got it from Japan, so it's been 'round the world before it came to me. And now I'm never letting it go! It's "born" in the same year as my only kid (for now), so I'm planning on keeping it until he turns [insert significant number], when I will pass it on.
Sorry, i got a little emotional there. Carry on
Homegrown Tele with a B-Bender
I was sure I posted mine in here, oh well.. here she is!
Yep, sure is a nice chunk of ash...
Telekinetic please, what is this wood called ? Beautiful !
