    That other thread made me feel confused. Frankly I found those fully-exposed telecaster images vulgar and obscene. Some things are best left to the imagination!

    This thread should be more PG... much less PG-13 like that other revealing one! Let’s see some tasteful, wholesome router-channel/swimming-pool cover ups! Just as Leo intended...

    No pickguard, but no naughty bits showing, either.

    @Treehouse, what's the thread you are referring to? Can you post a link?

    EDIT: Never mind, found it.

    The girl and the face mask is appropriate for these crazy times.

    Very true, although I put that sticker there some 4 years ago when I put the guitar together. I was hoping for it to be the opposite of pin-up girl decals we see often on guitars, sort of a bad a$$ rebellious girl that could throw a back a can of tear gas. I guess that too is appropriate for these crazy times.

    Here’s a few of mine.
    The “white blonde” MJT has before (white) and after (tort) pics.
    It will get a third, and final pickguard, soon.
    The new one will be an original Tele-type, again in tortoise-shell.
    The black Cabronita will eventually get a tort guard, and it will probably be a Thinline type.
    The old avatar guitar will eventually get a new one too.
    It still has the selector switch slot, and it bugs me.
    I (obviously) like tort guards.

    I wanted the blackguard look, but a little more. I think this did it nicely.

    Got it from a seller on eBay, though they don't seem to be on there anymore. I've seen others do something similar on anodized aluminum, though those have some major contrast, as you might imagine.

    That looks awesome! I like it! By chance do you have a picture that’s pulled back a bit so I can see it from a little further away?

    I didn't, but I'm happy to oblige ;)

    I tried to get it at an angle with the light that shows off the pattern as much as possible, but in person it's typically much more subtle.

    I participated in that PG-less thread, proudly so. Forget Leo...my Logan Custom "Firecaster" (see the guitar on the right in my avatar pic, or that other thread) is as God intended it: naked and unashamed. :twisted:

    But that guitar is my only tele without a pickguard. My other four Logan Custom teles all wear a blackguard. Here is a pic of just those four...

    [​IMG]

    ...and here is a pic of all seven of my Logan Custom guitars...

    [​IMG]

    Note that the guitars hanging above the teles on the couch are both also PG-less: the tele-style acoustic/electric on the left and the Logan Custom Challenger on the right.
