    Wow,is that ever nice! Enjoy that baby! I would want one just like it.
    And,from the looks of the 'family' pix,you've got it covered.

    Well except for a P90 git, a hollowbody,an acoustic...it never really ends,does it? ;)

    Good stuff! I just got an American Tele myself. Twang & clang is where it's at!

    Putting a humbucker in a Tele is like putting a mustache on the Mona Lisa - Roy Buchanan.

    Nice Guitar(s). I've been thinking about a Tele. :cool:

    Almost pulled the trigger on a G&L ASAT Bluesboy. I really like the Humbucker in the neck.
