    Any tele guys out there got any intonation tips lol

    All note slightly sharp at the 12th... Do I move the saddles upwards (as in towards the nut)?

    If it is sharp at the 12th fret then the saddle is too close to the nut and you want to move it south toward the butt of the guitar. If it is flat then you move the saddle north closer to the nut. Gotoh makes some nice compensated replacement saddles That correct the discrepancy between the B & G strings.

    A blonde Tele is like owning a dark colored suit. We're all gonna need both eventually but at least we get to enjoy the Tele while we're still alive. :D

    Bit of a wierd one here...

    The serial number checks out on Fender as a Player and it came from a big UK chain so I've no doubt its authentic but there's a 5 hole pickguard on it rather than an 8 like is standard on a Player Tele.

    Popped the guard off assuming the previous owner had put a 5 on themselves but no holes drilled underneath.

    Annoying as I've just bought an 8 hole Humbucker pickguard and I'll now have drill a couple of holes!
