    I'm looking for more information on Telecaster Flatheads. Anyone know a good and reliable source of info on them (years produced, specs, etc). As best as I can tell, it was a custom shop creation with EMG pickups. Really wish the manufacturers would leave up the historical information on models/production guitars.

    Thanks!

    Sounds like a pretty killer tele minus the contour and pickups.
