I was blessed with this guitar last evening and it's the very Tele I've admired for years. I know that it's not a usa but the fit and finish is excellent and it came with Lindy Fralin's and a good solid case. Gonna have to tweek it a bit but over all I'm very pleased.<br /> stigg:)<br /> <br />

That is really nice and double bound to boot!<br /> Lindy Fralin pickups are a treat!<br /> I've been looking at the offerings from M. Kelly and they have a very nice Tele from their Mod Series, that is ebony striped with Fralin's and at their price point, I think it is everything I would like in a Tele model. <br /> With yours already modded, other than a different neck, that is the guitar I want. <br /> Classy!!!! Enjoy!

Thanks Cal-<br /> I'm going to tweak the neck today and hope that I won't have to dress the frets. <br /> I like the neck shape and feel so I'll do what I can to keep it. I've got a 90s mim maple neck but I'm really partial to rosewood.<br /> I also had a mop pickguard which I installed yesterday and all I can say is wow!<br /> Ever since I saw Jerry Donahue with this guitar(his of course is a USA) I was hooked. My pickguard isn't black but The mop gives it a little more "bling".

I've worked on a few Classic Vibe Telecasters and they were all fine guitars. Sound and playability was right up there with the best MIM Teles I've handled.<br /> <br /> Pay no attention to the decal on a guitar's headstock. If it plays and sounds great--that's all that matters.

Some weeks ago when I received this guitar it was a looker but the action was too high for these old hands so I began to make it playable for me. I first checked the straightness of the neck and found that the fretboard was not level(the truss rod isn't the best and would only allow it to be as level as I could get it). So I dressed the frets and the result was not good. I bought some taller fret-stock and pulled the original frets. Then I sanded the bare fretboard to level, used a 9.5 radius block for obvious reasons, re-fretted and came up with a very playable Tele. I haven't gigged with it yet but I'm looking forward to it.<br /> On the whole though I recommend These guitars for quality and price.<br /> The pups aren't stock but the Fralins that came with it are spectacular. <br /> <br /> s:0)

My new Squier is a 50s CV Strat in Sherwood green. I installed a different pick guard with VNs. The guitar plays and sounds great. <br /> I also have a 60s CV Strat. <br /> These are really nice guitars.
