    The guitar I've been wanting for a couple of years came in yesterday! Last year, I thought I could pacify myself with a G&L Tribute ASAT Special, but it didn't work. The longing for a Tele never went away. I was going to buy my friend's American Standard, but it is Mystic Red and I knew that after the honeymoon phase was over, the color would bother me because it wasn't Lake Placid Blue. And my wife told me that if I was going to spend that much, get the one I really want, even if it took longer. So I waited. And now I have this!

    I've got a little crush on the LPB American Special Telecaster. God knows I have no need for another guitar, but it keeps calling to me. Congrats & Enjoy!!!

    Can't see the pictures, but congrats on the guitar. Both my Teles are at least in part American Specials (one has an American Standard neck because they don't do the LPB model with a maple board, so I just bought a loaded body)

    I keep thinking of doing that and putting a Warmoth '59 Roundback Maple/Rosewood 1 11/16' nut neck on it.

    You can't hotlink an attachment from another forum. You'll have to re-host them somewhere like imgur.com (free, no account needed, reliable).
