70th Anniversary Broadcaster Heavy Relic
Fat 50's Double Bound
53 Heavy Relic
So it's safe to say you like the Barden pickups?
Just traded for this 2015 ‘63 “Kurious Oranj” (RIP Mark E. Smith)
Custom shop Nocaster - light relic.
Very light weight ash body, feels easy to manage. Seemingly tighter string tension for same set 10's. Chunky "D" neck but the main custom option is 9.5" radius and medium jumbo frets and rolled fingerboard edges.
In playing - its slick with very well levelled frets and it sustains for ages.
Hello everyone. I’m new to Teles and I’ve been bit by the bug. Hope to learn a few things from y’all. Anyway here is my Custom Shop 50s LTD Vibra Tele.
way to go starting out with that as a first telecaster
I had to ease myself into one with a humbucker especially coming from Les Pauls. I’m already thinking about my next telecaster. Lol.
Curious about the wiring in this tele. The specs mentions that it uses dual stacked 250k/500k pots so each pickup is balanced. Do you have any more details by any chance?
Not quite balanced but close enough. I’m messing with the pickup heights to see if I can get it closer without sounding like a hot mess when in the middle position.
Yea, I was going to ask you about the middle position as I found it’s kind of one of the compromises of having a humbucker in the neck and single coil in the bridge. Thought the dual stacked pots would help with this. Also noticed from seeing the knobs that the pots are configured as master volume and master tone
It’s pretty close. I’m just very nit picky. I’ll spend hours doing this on my other guitars to get it right. I’m beyond OCD when it comes to things like this. LOL
I like the playability of my cs. But i prefer my pv52 sound
Here are both of mine. The blue Esquire I just bought yesterday and it hasn’t arrived yet, but the thinline nocaster below it I have had almost a year and it is a fantastic guitar. The necks on the custom shop stuff are better than any production guitars or any parts casters I have played. The pickups are amazing in mine and only on this model, not sold outside of a guitar. The woods are top notch and it’s a guitar I never tire of playing. I bought both used and didn’t pay anywhere near lost price. I am a professional guitar teacher and gigging musician so they are tools to me and get played like crazy. The guys who owned them before me barely played them and must’ve been collectors. I too one day would love to have one made to my specs, but it is such a jump in cost for a guitar that I’m not sure I’d like any more than what I already have.

Custom Shop Telecasters. IMO, as good as Fender Telecasters ever made, from any era.
This beautiful one showed up recently...
Yikes, that is sexy!
Thank you. It's been on my "want" list for a couple of years and finally this one came available at a reasonable price.
A couple more shots...
Keep this away from me unless you want that delicious object back with teeth marks in it
