    Just noticed the Butler Tube Driver in the photo, I have one of those, too. Do you like how it sounds?

    Picked this up the day after Christmas. Schecter PT Special. Love the P90 in the neck, twangy bridge, and the push/pull for series parallel sounds. Oh, and it's comfy to play w/ a tummy cut and arm contour.

    But, I wonder if the ferrules fall out when it's unstrung. Apparently they should.

    LOL

    It's Tuesday somewhere I think. This is my main Tele. Started life as a MIM 2011 FSR with Clapton mid boost, vintage noiseless pickups, thick neck (nice!), glossy neck too. Vintage tuners and vintage bridge. I changed the nut to an adjustable brass nut, put a modern 6 saddle bridge on it, kept the pickups, got rid of the midboost and active stuff and added gotoh locking tuners. So it is far from a traditional Tele....but it plays, feels, and sounds GREAT! I had wanted a nice USA Tele for awhile, got one and HATED it....so I bought this FSR used for very little $$$ and spent very little on the mods to make it exactly what I like. Sold the mid boost.

    Yeah, me, too. Maybe that'll give me a chance to take some pictures of it.

    Tele Tuesday. A year ago I bought my first Fender, a Jag, and I got bitten by the Fender bug. I just bought my fourth telecaster this year and it’s only August. I have the bug pretty bad.
