    Hi, Thought I'd grab all the Tele's for a quick pic.
    L-R
    L: 66 Fender Tele with Glaser B Bender middle PU added years ago.
    Came from Gruhn's C:84 in the natural refin CHEAP!
    Upper left: 62 Esquire Custom, Yasuhiko Iwanade made neck (Beauty of the Burst author), Bill Archer body, 67 Fender bridge assembly and neck plate, Duncan Antiquity. Plays and sounds wonderful.
    Middle floor: 5th Ave Fret Shop Esquire Custom Sherwood Green, Joe Barden, Fender 67 Bridge and neck plate (again, left overs parts from the bender installs),
    real 52 Esquire brass saddles, about 5lbs. Nice Joe Barden Tele type tones.
    Upper right: 67 Fender Telecater Custom, quarter sawn ash body! Glaser dual bender B+G, 55 Tele Pu installed. also about 5lbs! SMOKIN! Joe thought it may be a proto-type for the Tele Thinline as it is hollow without the F holes! It was a factory refin in 78-79. I got it from the original owner with the receipt for the refin(somewhere!) His boy routed the neck position for a bucker... All the red has faded, but is still under the guard. Original pickguard had some funny business, so I put on the pearloid just for kicks.
    Lower right: 67 Tele with Bigsby in blonde, old refin looking real nice, rest is original. Plays and sounds excellent. the weight is med.
    I have owned 5 Black guards at one time, they are all gone now.
    These guitars see alot of action mixed up in rotation. The 66 far left gets most of the calls as it was my first Tele, thanks to Ray Flacke's "Highways and Heartaches". Yup, that album did it for me. Then there was Vince in 84 with his first EP. He also had a Tele that looked very familiar to Ray's on the cover. So, had to have one like their's!!
    Started the hardcore chicken picken' thing about then...So did everybody else in Nashville about that time!
    Hope you enjoy. Please feel free to add your Tele pics as well.
    Signed,
    Telecaster Ninja :JAM LOL 'wreck

    anyway . . . these are sorta close to what I was really lloking for, I know I've seen it somewhere, but I was looking for a Telecaster/Roundup (the distinctive Grescth guitar) maybe someone else can find it.

    Hogy, I had no idea you had such a sickness!LOL
    Were any of these guitars used for the Sound clips at the Komet site?
    That Western Tele is awesome, and so all are the others as well!

    Yes, only the '56 Esquire is refinished. All are refretted though.
    They look like sisters, but they came from different places. The '58 is a one owner guitar.

    Cheapo Tele thrills from someone on a tight budget.

    My "SX-quire". It's a SX STL50 from Rondo mod'ed with a mint green Esquire pickguard and GFS Repro 50's Tele bridge pickup from Guitar Fetish. It's been rewired with Esquire style wiring. It's been a fun project so far and I'm going to be adding more to it as I go. It has a decent amount of mojo for a sub $200 guitar.

    I'm sorry, that was not my intention. I've been into vintage guitars since they were affordable and I forget that showing off stuff like that might come across the wrong way now that these instruments are cult objects.

    I removed the offending Esquire pics. Can't remove my first pic since it's already been quoted.
