    This is how my "Teles" started in 2020...

    79483220_10213416713607390_3127785555077627904_o.jpg

    After a bunch of neck/pickups/hardware swaps, and a couple additions this is how they are starting 2021. A little more towards the traditional side. I'm thinking this might actually be how they stay (at least for a bit).

    2012 MIM Paisley body with 2019 MIM roasted maple neck.Pups (N - Gibson Mini Humbucker, B - Razor)
    2000 AM Standard body with 2015 AM Standard neck. Pups (N - Gibson Mini Humbucker, B - 1980 Seymourized)
    Mid 90's MIJ body with 1978 neck.Pups (N - Unknown, B - Bo Pickups Tele Bridge)

    [​IMG]

    2000's Unknown body with 2009 AM Special neck. Pups (Duncan Antiquity Tele)
    2006 Squier Standard body with Belltone flamed maple neck. Pups (N - Dimarzio PAF Classic, B - 2000 AM Standard)
    Unknown body with Unknown solid rosewood neck. Pups (N - 2000 AM Standard, B - 80's Seymour Duncan Broadcaster)

    I just have one of each which is good for me:
    a stock 2004 Standard Telecaster, and a 1996/7 Tex-Mex Strat ( parts changed out, including pickups and just last year, a new neck)
    Lots of gigs between both!

    I will devote 2021 to finding out why I put 7 strings on this Esquire. It's had about 1 hour of play in the last 6 years. The P90 sounds great. It needs some love and 2021 is the year of love, right?.
