    incoming

    My Telecaster GAS has gotten the best of me, along with a band mate who is a great enabler and keeps sending me reverb links, what a true friend! Lol!

    Picked this one up earlier this week. It matches my VOX AC15. How could I say no?

    Here’s some sale pics and the link. I’ll try and get a proper NGD later.

    Thank you, sir

    I’m unfamiliar with why he would have changed the bridge to a toploader. This is my second true tele, so I’m not well versed on all of the various upgrades and iterations if these incredible animals.

    I’m also curious to what the pickups are like. If I’m unhappy with them, I need to find out what Dan Steinhardt has in his ‘63 Closet Custom Tele because that’s what I’d want to put in this one.

    Wow, that's edging towards a Francis Rossi (Quo) kind of look. I like it! Hopefully you'll update this thread with your own pics soon (y)

    And British Racing Green - I'm thinking that baby needs a Jaguar logo on it somewhere

    Yay for BRG. Crazy that its rare. I guess there is some sort of rule that 90% of all guitars must be white, black or red. :)

    It’s RARE so he can mark it up a bit. I think they still sell these now with rosewood boards.

    That's a beauty. How big of a difference is there between the standard and the affinity?

    I have no clue. Are those different model levels?

    Yeah, there are bullet, affinity and standard (and others too). I've only played an affinity, and it was a while ago anyway, and was wondering about the differences.

    Came in here to say just that. Pretty close to Eagles green. I’d wish they go back to Kelly Green tho.

    Happy NGD!

    As a Redskins fan, I hate the Eagles, but I have to be honest, the metallic green they have on their helmets is a sharp color. I almost painted a car that color back in the late 90's. I think you should do a guitar that color in honor of your teams world championship.

    I often hear that from other Iggles fans. Personally, I love midnight green and prefer it to Kelly green.
