    Hey, you must be familiar with New Orleans food!

    Frankly it should the the Holy 6 - onion, celery, bell pepper (green AND red if possible), garlic and green onions and parsley too!

    Holy 7 is you count the Tabasco, used in the kitchen and on the table.

    nice choices, btw

    Heck yeah! Now we're cooking! Don't forget the fresh thyme and tomatoes if they're in season.

    Red beans & rice and blackened chicken pasta are regulars in my kitchen. I've visited New Orleans a couple of times and loved the food and music. Gotta admit, though, I draw more inspiration from a local restaurant that's run by Katrina transplants.

    re: Katrina transplants If they were from N.O. then you're getting the real food!

    "fresh thyme and tomatoes"

    or good dried thyme and oregano, which we used a lot together. Of course my family is Silcilian-Creole.

    Some of my faves:

    Shrimp Creole

    Crawfish etouffe

    Seafood gumbo / okra

    trout almandine

    Soft shell crab po-boy

    I also did this on my partscaster, made sense to not have the selector switch jammed up tight on the volume knob. I'm afraid I've become spoiled with a good volume pedal though and use the guitar volume knob very little. I did the 4-way mod as but don't use it too much, HB tone works well for soloing with a beefier tone. OP, that butterscotch/blackguard is about as perfect as they get. Emnjoy!

    There really are basically 5 electric guitars, that everything else is based on

    -Tele
    - Strat
    - Les Paul
    - 335
    - ES 5

    I’m thinking everything else is a derivative of one of these

    Lol that sounds more like we’re getting to a dozen than a trinity. When I hit the lottery I’ll submit pics of all of them. I will say I like the P90 suggestion. So, is a Les Paul with P90’s an authentic Les Paul?

    Nice. Just the way it's supposed to be.

    I may be in the minority, but the neck pickup defines Telecaster for me, so I never understood the neck humbucker thing. Or why there are more models with a neck humbucker than a bridge humbucker.

    Don't get me wrong. I love my Cabronita with its neck fidelotron, but that chrome covered single coil says Telecaster to me.

    I saw the new model and decided to give it a try. Then I asked them to pull down a normal single coil. The professional model just sounded so much better I traded one of my strats in to cut cost. No regrets. And yes, I’m usually on the neck pick up myself

    Interesting, because I have never really liked the Tele neck pickup, mine has a P90 in the neck.

    What defines a Tele most to me is the big metal steel-guitar-like bridge pickup assembly. That's where the Tele tone resides.

    That said, I always like this model:

    That's what I hear a lot. Like I said, I'm in the minority.

    I've got that same Tele (it is identicak to my first Tele many years ago except it is a MIM version and has upgraded Texas Special pups. I bought it new and then decided to build a black one to match my black strat. I ordered the body, neck, and loaded pickguard from Stratosphere and made sure that every component was genuine Fender. The player loaded pickguard has a "bigger" pickup at the neck than the standard, so I had to do a little alteration to the neck pup cavity in the bod. Some thing are just not directly swappable on Fender guitars. But this one came out nice and sounds great. So now I have the all original Tele (Butters cotch), a black partscaster tele, an Amber colored Asian model FMT with dual SD's, and a '72 Reissue in Waknut. So yes, I have Strats, Teles, a Jaguar, And Gibsons and others;

    I like the tone very much. I fully intend to leave it stock. But I have thought about the vintage tuners just for looks

    Yes I think I’d do that because I prefer split shaft tuners. But either way it will look ok: it’s meant to be a modern guitar that pays homage to the blackguards of yore, not a recreation of them.

    Enjoy it! A good tele is an invaluable addition to your arsenal!
