Thanks!Beautiful guitar! The shape reminds me a little of one of Richard Thompson's guitars. (not his Kelly, but a Ferrington, I think)
I've never tried a guitar that had a tele "neck" style pickup in the middle position as well. (although I've seen a couple around) how do you like that middle pickup sound?
That's LOU!Cindy is now posting pics from Rick's shop on Instagram....but I'm not on Instagram. So for other luddites like me, here's a pic of one of the latest custom designs.
Her work is progressing by leaps and bounds. So cool! How amazing where she is taking the artwork now, from my guitar which I think was the second woodburned pickguard she ever did.
man, i'd love to hear how the gretsch pups sound in a tele.Here are the pics, as promised! It sounds great and plays even better. The pickups are a big improvement over the Armstrongs the guitar came with. Especially with a little gain. Before I could crank my drive pedal and it barely sounded like it was on, now it rocks when I want it to, and cleans up when I need to. I can't say enough good things about the Mastery bridge. This is the 2nd one I've installed and it's just as awesome as the first. They sound great, and it's the easiest setup I've ever done. They make a conventional Tele bridge too, but unfortunately for me they don't make it in lefty yet. The Mastery MST string tree is pretty cool too. Probably not necessary for most people, but I like Mastery and their products so I wanted to check it out. It's basically a mini Mastery saddle. The sticker is a magnolia (State flower of Louisiana). It's from a design shop in my hometown of Lafayette, LA called Parish Ink. A little extra mojo never hurts, right?
Welcome back Cindy!Just saying hi guys!
If I can post anything specific that any of you want to see just let me know- trying to get back in the swing of things with the online accounts.
read that some of you are not in Instagram, I've been slacking on here and even my blog with my new schedule. x
