1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Telecaster, that is...

    Just picked this up - a Mark Jenny refin - neck may have some overspray, haven't figured that out yet...rewired (original wire) but all else original. Fantastic soft 'V' neck! Frets are in great shape...

    Some early '55 late '54 specs - flatpole pickup! 4-55 neck date, 5/55 body date (neck cavity).

    Oh, and the sound....well :)

    I have been fortunate enough to have had extensive play time on an original (minus refret) 54 tele. It's hands down the best guitar I've ever played. The MJ refin on yours is dead-on. Beautiful...congrats!
