    Very classy, congrats. Looks so much better with the parchment guard.

    I think it looks great with either pick guard. Is this the model that used to be the Baja? With the 4-way switch and S1?

    That's the one. Though I wasn't in the market for a Tele when these were the Baja line. The custom shop pickups and 4-way switch, with a neck I like, were what really sealed the deal for me. Haven't played much with the S1 yet!

    First thing I did with my Tele... Replaced the black pickguard with a parchment pickguard.

    Nice, congrats... I agree that parchment has better tone than black. I used parchment on my partscaster, mint would have worked too

    Congrats. Everyone needs a Tele or three or four. :D

    And I agree with your pickguard swap. Who in the hell decides what pickguard should be used on each model and why do they seem to make the worst choice possible so often?

    I'm like the king of replacement pickguards. I have a whole box of them just so I can change a look every once in a while.

    Awesome! That's a sweet looking guitar.

    As a recent Tele owner, enjoying mine more each day/gig--it really can cover all styles.
