Another New Guitar Day

Okay, they're not for everybody, but as you start getting on and realise you should probably be thinking of life as a country chicken picker, a Tele has to become part of the arsenal - I was lucky enough to find this little beauty in a local store - Fender Japan Dr K signature Telecaster in (apparently) ultra rare Aztec Gold - how could I refuse!!!!






Maybe a set of Joe Barden pickups and she'll be just a killer!

Cheers,

David

Re: Another New Guitar Day

hmm - judging by the third picture, the pickup mounting springs might be a tad short........

well, an excuse to pull it apart and check out the innards at last!

Ooh wee, that girl is sexy! Congrats.
What kind of pickup selections are there, if you don't mind me asking?

Re: Another New Guitar Day

I'd swap out the guard/lace sensors/switch and get a regular tele neck pup in there. Would look awesome
