You need a B bender on that Tele, lets see if we can get it to 16 or 17lbs
I'll be the oddball with the Fender acoustic! They aren't all that great at acoustics, but this one is an exception. (I was being creative when I took this photo)
Right after I unboxed her:
Scarlett looks stunning!
I named a band i play with after my red accoustic. We were called The Scarlet Darlings...... till we did a search on Facebook.
Now, to avoid confusion. we are The Red Darlings and i keep my clothes on for most gigs.
Seriously! Why not go for broke?!
Actually, my game plan is to route out a bunch of material from the front and cut a fancy allover pickguard to cover it. Smuggler tele style. Hopefully get it back to a comfortable 9.5lbs.
Or just get a harness instead of a strap.
I had a fender acoustic for years. No, a Martin it is not, but it was a serious work horse. Wasn’t nearly as good looking as this though.
My 3 current Fenders....I still need more Teles and a Jazzy!!!
LOVE the pink Jag!!!!!
Thanks Larry! I had to build it myself. I don't have the talent or money to go Custom shop!! Still came in around $1100 when all was said and done! With me making the pic guard too!
Awesome job!!! Love Fender's Shell pink
On the Coronado, the bad first: the bridge post bushings were installed ~3/32" or so too far from the nut to allow for proper intonation w/ the stock bridge (and most aftermarket bridges I tried except the ABM2400). I wound up pulling the bushings and putting a Kluson harmonica bridge on there and problem more than solved... It's a pretty heavy guitar, I'm guessing it's got to break the 10lb. barrier and might be in spitting distance of 11. There's a heckuva lot of good, seems like all of the rest of the assembly aside from the bridge bushing location is superb, the wood and finish are really quite nice looking to me (better than my supplied picture in person), it's got a very comfortable and generous neck profile and board, and It's got a pretty big booty but is well balanced and still manages to be comfortable to play seated or standing (w/ a good strap). I think this is the best I've ever heard the Fidelitrons (good enough that I've had pretty much no impulse to swap for TVJs or Gretsch Filters) and while they have an abundance of bite, it never hits me as shrill or icepicky like many of the Cabronitas I've tried have.
Overlooking the one fairly bad fail on the bridge location I think it's a really great guitar.
LOL, yeah it was a little surprising to me when I went through them to post up in this thread. What's more disconcerting is that I have 3 more that have been on the auction block for a couple years that are technically still mine, and another one coming in tomorrow... It's only a problem if I let it be though, right?
Cool! Thanks Sid...My Starcaster was really perfect and the Coronados are definitely still on my radar!
Here’s my current Fenders. The Squier Thinline now has a Fender MIM ‘69 neck, but same guitar with Lollar CCs—total partscaster.
Love these. Is the JM an AV65? The anodized gold guard looks great on there.
Thanks man! Yeah it’s my AV65 Thinskin in OTM, a real deserted island guitar.
Just a few weeks old and it's getting all my attention at the moment. All prepped and ready for a Bigsby B5. Waiting for a good deal. Squier Classic Vibe Thinline. Great guitar!
Nice! Next time I b5 a tele, i’m going to go this way with the bridge. The fender b5 kit had a terrible bridge, and the alternatives are expensive!
Only three ,at the moment anyway.
2015 American True Vintage 52 Tele.
2014 60th Anniversary 1954 Strat.
And me trying to relive my youth as Steve Harris!
2013 MIM Precision
