  • NGD - ESP relic tele content





    ESP LTD TE202. They normally sell for $350, always been interested, but a local shop was blowing it out for $200, couldn't pass it up. The neck is great. I need to take it back and get it set up, especially to adjust the pick ups. The neck humbucker was almost flush with the pickguard and sounded like quiet mud. I raised it and got it sounding better, but I still want a pro to adjust it.



    Will probably replace both pickups eventually. Might go the cheap route and check out the new GFS professional series, or save up for some dimarzios or SD's. Any suggestions? Maybe even a mini hum in the neck? I like the classic tele bridge sound, and a nice round, but bright neck pickup tone for soul/r&b type sounds. Humbucker might not be the best bet for that, I dunno.

    Those are pretty nice. Kinda wish they made one with out the fake wear on the finish, but whatever.



    For $200 that's a score.

      Definitely would have preferred no relic finish, but the neck and frets are great, it has a extra cut in the neck joint for better upper fret access, and it has 22 frets, which I prefer. You can't really find those features on comparable squiers/MIM fender's.



      And yeah the price was stupid good.

                  As far as headstocks go, I've seen worse.

                    The LTDs coming out lately are pretty nice for the cash. Easy to play and pretty good hardware from the factory. Good deal on that tele. I'm not a fan of relic'ed guitars, but for $200, who cares if it plays good?

                        $200 is a steal. relic'ing tho, is a waste IMO. it always looks like someone just took a sander to the part where the arm rests.

                            Yeah, I'd be okay spending $200 on that. Looks sexy, even with the relicing. The headstock reminds me of the Teisco Spectrum 5 headstock. As far as pickups are concerned, I have a GFS Retrotron Liverpool mini-humbucker in the neck slot of my tele and I love it.

                              The more I read, the more I'm leaning towards some GFS. Definitely interested in the professional series 63 tele bridge pickup, but torn about the neck pickup. Could go with the professional alinco II to stay with a covered humbucker, but I'm also intrigued by their mini humbuckers and retrotron/mini-retrotrons.
