I have one just like it. VERY nice guitar!!
2010 MIM Classic Player Baja with 2007 American Tele in Candy Cola in the background
All of them? Good God Jim I'm an analyst not a photographer. Here's a start.
A 2006 ash body Nashville Deluxe body/neck converted to a Nocaster/Broadcaster type, CS Nocaster pickups w/4 way wiring. (courtesy of our member sjtalon)
A 2009 Squier CVC body completely redone with a 2006 Nashville Deluxe neck, Bill Lawrence/Wilde Keystone pickups, revamped and upgraded electronics, compensated saddles, vintage pearl pickguard.
On it's stand in the background is a '95 MIM LPB top loader I converted to a Nashville type with custom wound Onamac pickups and a Babicz FCH bridge. It was traded for my Robt Cray Strat last August. The other two; a Peavey Generation w/humbuckers and a Fender Thinline w/P90s were sold long ago.
A home built Esquire produced as a favor for a very good friend. Paulownia body, Allparts soft "V" neck, Kluson tuners, Wilkinson bridge/compensated saddles, Cavalier Fat Lion pickup, '50s style wiring. (Almost kept it myself. It rocked)
Oooh, is that a TV Jones Starwood pickup I see at the neck?
Nope. It's a plain Jane SX pickup I opened up with a dremel
That's good Dremel work then, looks factory.
I'm generally an idolater of all things TVJ but I've been looking for some real-world feedback on the Starwood series. It's a bit of a departure from their usual offerings.
Maybe someday I'll get around to finishing these 2.
The only tele I have left is the Telecamphor, which needs some work and will get a couple big mods over the winter. If you followed the work I did on @Groovey's tele you will know what's in store.
Keep it comin'! I'm loving all this Tele pr0n.
Body from a 2014-15 Squier CVC Gold Bronze FSR limited edition never released to US dealers (prior to complete transformation). It has a 2006 Nashville Deluxe neck w/rosewood board, Grover tuners, Kent Armstrong P90 neck pickup (shown), Bill Lawrence/Wilde L48TL twin blade bridge pickup, Babicz FCH bridge, vintage pearl pickguard.(need to update pic)
This was another home built very lightweight double bound Paulownia body w/Cavalier Lion pickups, Wilkinson bridge w/compensated saddles, 4-way wiring, CTS pots, Switchcraft jack, an Electrosocket jack cup, and a vintage pearl pickguard. I tried several necks on it but never found one I really liked as well as those 2006 Nashville necks. So I ended up selling the loaded body to EVH's guitar tech off a CL ad when Van Halen was playing Red Rocks. I thought the buyer was scamming me but he wasn't. Great guy who had built some great guitars of his own but wanted a lightweight loaded Tele body for a gorgeous flamed neck he was given at a NAMM show.
Tele type G&L ASAT Specials.....
My first ASAT Special. Mahogany body, MFD pickups, Saddle Lock bridge, Sunburst finish. Broke my heart to trade it but the bass cab I badly wanted and got in exchange for it was worth it. Less than a month later I replaced it with the one below.
Same basic specs but in Irish Ale over mahogany and a little heavier. I really do like these G&L ASAT versions more than my Fenders but an ASAT won't take those 2006 Nashville necks I'm also married to so this may be my only one at least for now.
Now there's a man after my own heart. The only thing better than a Tele is a wall full of them.
Though my first guitar was a Strat I definitely became obsessed with Teles long before my current obsession with Strats.
Minus the Acoustasonic...
Same here. My first Tele was a 66 or 67 that belonged to the lead guitarist in our band. He bought a Gretsch and sold me his red Tele. When the band broke up a year or two later our other guitarist sold me his Strat. IIRC I paid about $200 each for them or thereabout. Amazing how much they'd go for now.
Sold the Strat soon after but kept the Tele and have been through a few more over the years as you can see. Something about them just feels right and since they take about any pickup combo you want to hand them there's not much one can't cover.
Two of the nicest lookers I've ever seen especially the double bound.
