Yeah, 2 more teles

Picked up a couple more Teles. I think I'm done now with the only possible exception being that a guy at work offered me his Tele at a low price. He hasn't mentioned it in a couple of weeks, so if he changed his mod, cool and if not I'll take it for the low price just to have around.

The first one is is 72 Thinline RI, fat neck. Kind of beat up. I picked it up in a hurry and when I got home I noticed a crack in the neck joint, probably just in the paint but I havent checked yet

Then I saw someone not only made the exact tele I would make, but they were looking to sell it for a reasonable price.

MIJ 52 RI, slightly relic'd
MIA 52 RI bridge pickup
Sperzel tuners
Gibson 57 Classic in the neck
Fishman Piezzo bridge
The only thing I'm not happy about was there is no blender for the piezzo so for now I either need a stereo cable and 2 amps or I can pull the cable 1/2 way out for piezzo.
I will add a blender knob soon, and I might put a Joe Barden Rails pickup in the bridge

Re: Yeah, 2 more teles

That second one makes me feel just a little bit country!

Nice double score
