    Talking Show Off Your TELECASTERS!!!

    Show 'em if you got 'em. Lots of folks on here seem to be picking up a Tele and it's been awhile since we've had a guitar show off thread. I believe the last one was an LP one, so now time to show off the BETTER single cutaway electric!

    If you've done mods on yours and have before/after shots, feel free to throw those in. I love seeing what people do to their axes to make them their own and how the end product varies from the starting point.

    Here's mine ('04 MIM Fender w/ GFS pups and '99 MIK Squier w/ Phat Cat):



    Cheers to all those guitfiddlers wise enough to rock a Tele!

    Here's a pic of my Telecaster, it's not very exciting I'm afraid!



    It's a cheapie Gould Telecaster, korean made, with a Poplar body and (what I think is) a nice maple neck.

    The neck pickup on it sounded horrid, and as I've never been that big a fan of Tele neck pickups, I decided to go for a single bridge pickup and Master volume/tone controls.

    It's currently got 500K colume and tone pots, a Bareknuckle Piledriver broadcaster style pickup and a custom scratchplate made by Feline Guitars of Surrey, as I couldn't get a regular scratchplate to fit it.
    Gibson, PRS, Fender, Patrick Eggle, JJ, BC Rich, Gordon Smith, Jackson, Squier, Ibanez and Home-built Guitars.

    Splawn Quick Rod, Soldano SLO Clone, Marshall JCM800, Matamp + old Carlsbro amps, Zilla and Award Session speaker cabs.

    Mainly HomeBrew Electronics and G2D FX, plus a few other.

    Here is my 2005 (I think...can't remember how long I've had this beast) Highway One. I've changed the tuners, guardplate, saddles, pots, switch, jack, jack cup, and Custom Shop Duncans...it was a good guitar when I bought it but it's an amazing guitar these days...this is an old shot, I'll have to take a few new ones showing all the wear...these HW1 finishes are real thin...makes for nice natural relic jobs!



    Here is my MIM 50's Esquire (Sittin pretty with my Mission Amps 5B4 V Front amp and original EP-3 Echoplex)...this one got new electronics, saddles and a Joe Barden pickup...it's a true killah!



    Enjoy!!!

    These are nice but wait...I've got a new project in the works thats for sure gonna be an amazing piece! I'll be posting begining pics of her soon...
    Proudly Klon free!

    I'll post mine once I've upgraded...right now mine's just a plain old black MIM tele...nothing you've never seen before...
    You can run over a Tele with a pickup truck, pick it up - and it'll still play out of tune

    Well, nobody seems to like it whenever I post it, but I love it, one of my best players. Just a shortscale mahogany Warmoth with a Gibby pickup and a chopped vintage Tele bridge.



    Started life with an SM-3 mini and a vintage strat hardtail, hated it, much better now.

    Just got this one, still getting to know her

    Thats a pretty cool looking Tele for sure, and definatly one of a kind, but I actually wanted to stick with some tele sounding pickups to get a bit more twang (and a rosewood neck) so I don't think it will be finding a home with me anytime soon, but heres a bump for a sweet looking tele just the same

    This was my #1 for the past 10 years...

    Started off as 91 MIM Standard, I added a new neck and put a Custom 5/59n in it. I just recently traded it on something better.

    Before:


    After:










    Dave (Zhangliqun) custom-wound the pickups for me - a Paul Bunyan bridge pickup (a la QP, with plenty of twang) and a Babe the Blue Ox neck pickup (a la PhatCat, but with an A3 mag). Modern bridge base, but with individual vintage styled string-saddles. The pickguard is a Warmoth Vintage Pearl/Creme/Black three-ply. The knobs are strat-style chrome knobs, nice heavy Tele-knob feel with the Strat good looks. Reversed the plate, while I was at it.
