    Looking for a change of scenery I pulled out my 2001 American Standard Telecaster. I really don’t know why I don’t play this more often, it’s a lot of fun. It’s strung with 8’s so it a nice easy going play!

    I’m not usually one for Mother of Toiletseat pickguards, but let me know which you like best. MOT, Black or Parchment.

    Great tele, but your avatar was what caught my eye. I love all things related to California.

    Like the Tele, but you got to keep trying, on those pickguards. How about maybe Bone or Antique White?

    Maybe Turtle Shell ?
