    nice teles...

    though I think the frets are kinda too shiny for guitars "of age" hehe. Of course that's a trade off on playability...

    Retro City Don!

    Where did you get those knobs?
    Off of an old Silvertone Stereo?

    BTW. the Fender Booth had really nicely executed relics - I complimented one of the head honchos there - I hope John Cruz is getting paid well -- seems he is doing their finest relic work over there today!!

    Maken Music in Chicago. They have a number of them including maple. I have no affiliation. I just copied the pics of the website.

    I'd show you my Old World, but then you'd have to buy one.
    I don't want to do that to you guys!

    I think a mint green guard on a black fender with a maple neck is about as good as it gets. I have that combo on one of my strats.
