    Merc, that's a beautiful instrument. I played one of those once and loved it. Been kicking my butt for not buying it. They're rare birds in Canuckistan.

    Congrats!

    @Dana Rudd @Tony65x55 @G5422T @JC higgy @juks @audept @new6659 @Ricochet @scrimmer

    Thank you all. Despite the minor damage, I’m pretty pumped with the feel of this one. It’s great stock and although it’s fine as is, I do have some mod plans for this one… shielding, brass saddles, Nashville pickup configuration. One of my offsets will be getting a Bigsby this year too. It’s a toss up between this one or my Squire. :)

    And of course any modifications have to be documented with pictures. Otherwise they did not happen

    Congratulations, Merc. Sorry about the damage.

    What kind of music is this for?

    Thanks. Daphne’s a great color! I was so torn between blue or white.

    Thank you.

    I play mainly Rockabilly and stoner rock. But I typically don’t buy guitars set for specific things. It’s based more on feel and sound. Tele’s cover a lot of ground.

    Congrats on the new offset Merc, shame about the damage but at least the seller came to the party so that's good.

    Does this make 4 now?

    Thank you. You’ve got a great memory! It would be four but I let the mahogany one go to get this white one. It was a cool and beautiful guitar though. But for some reason the stock p90 on it felt to flat matched to the bridge pickup at times for my taste. I debated about swapping pickups for a while to attempt to match something better. Ultimately I decided to sell it and go for this white one. It worked out well. The new owner is stoked about it, and I made $300 profit on it. :)

    Here’s the updated family photo.

    They all look great, fair enough about the sound, seems like you made a good choice especially seeing as you ended up $300 better off on the sale.

    Offset Teles were available a few years back from Long and McQuades in Canada as a Limited Edition Walnut American Professional model....I have a very near mint one that I got at a great price....originally sold for $1900 CDN....got for $1400

    Thanks Nish. I had played one at Tundra and I hesitated a day too long and it was gone. Never did see one at my local L&M.

    It was actually a Special Limited Edition that L&M carried and had 'made' for them....same as in several large USA and UK chains....

    Are you still looking for one? I might be interested in selling if got right price
