    I'm looking for a Telecaster with a vintage tremolo and three single coils....no bigsby!

    only thing i found that comes close is the fretking country squire semitone deluxe. it has H-S-H pickups, but this could be fixed.

    what others are there? thanks!

    When you say "vintage tremalo" you mean like a Strat, right?

    Okay, this might sound rude but it's just me who don't understand - How is what you are looking for not at strat?

    Easier to add Tele pickups to a Strat, or? Unless the Tele body and neck shape is very important.

    I just added a Tele neck pickup to my Strat. Love it. Sounds great with the tremolo.

    i know a strat with these specs would be much easier to find, but i just like the tele body form, so if there was a guitar like this it would be nice;

    i guess i have to warmoth it or something like that.

    Not cheap, but Tom Anderson makes a T Classic with 3 single coils and a vintage style tremolo.

    Never tried one, Christoph. But Reverend guitars in general get a lot of praise around here.

    I just played a Reverend Eastsider S the other day. I liked it a lot! I have owned 3 reverend guitars before, but sold them as I could never get them to sound right. The Eastsider sounded like you expect. Stratty, maybe slightly fatter. Nice guitar!

    I played an Eastsider S last year and like it quite a bit. You should definitely check it out. The neck shape and fret size were not quite what I wanted, else I was very close to pulling the trigger on one.

    bumping this for any other ideas, I too love the sound and feel of a tele but would love a vintage style tremolo. I've had andersons and they're pretty hard to beat but they're pricey. Anyone know more about the g&l option mentioned earlier in this thread, I've not seen the asat III with trem.
    Thanks,
    Kurt

    Interesting strap lock placement. I assume that's what those are?

    He played the guitar holding it vertically .. and asked for those strap locks, Dunlop if I recall, to be so placed..
