My '91 AmStd has been out of commission since last fall when it was determined that, after 25 years of service, the frets were just plain worn out. Some time after Christmas I finally had them replaced. I got it back but it still needed some fine tuning, so I decided to take it apart and send the body out and have the sunburst repainted in Ice Blue Metallic.
I finally got it back together a couple weeks ago and after giving the paint another couple weeks to cure just in case, I gave it a final fine-tuning and took it to its first gig in about 8 months.
It was like working with my favorite tool. Comfortable, and easy to dial in about any tone I needed. And every one of of them sounded great!

Great to have my Tele back!

There's no such thing as an ice blue metallic Telecaster.

Nope.

Not possible.

Are you kidding? Those are vintage screws right there!

I'm really digging Tele tones..

They'd be worth a motza on ebay!!

Especially if you advertised "with vintage swampyankee funk"!
