I'm really not sure Philly. I think it must have been gigged a lot in smoky venues as under the pickguard it is almost a butterscotchy sort of colour. Will take some pics next time the guard is off.

It's the 70's tele that I nearly sold a few months ago - I think you were one of a few who suggested on not selling it, thanks for the advice as I would have regretted it.

I'll bite.
Never have liked them, please stop ;)

I am generally happy to keep quiet about it though.

The nearest thing I like is a Washburn Idol type thing, and thats only similar in the top horn.

I'll bite too.  Here's my absolute favourite and #1 guitar, also the one in my avatar.  My incredibly awesome Fender Custom Shop Tele.  Stick that in your fusebox, Roo!

Ooooh, I do so love Telecasters!

Tele, tele, tele, tele, tele!!!

BKP should drop the rest of their range and concentrate ONLY on replacement Tele PUPs.

(enough baiting?  I am something of a master...)

I was never much of a one for tele's but I am warming to them now...but IMHO they need contouring to be nice and comfy...and the scratchplates do look like they were an afterthought - why don't they follow the horn contour properly?!  :( )

I think that's a part of their charm.

:lol:

Nope, just the one.  I could only just afford this one by selling/trading in four other guitars.  Bloody glad I did though  ;)  I can't describe how superb this guitar is!

You should have asked for some money off.  That guitar has chips and dings all over it...
