Members Josh S Posted January 7, 2010 Members Share Posted January 7, 2010 My band has some very specific needs, as you can probably imagine. For one of our tunes, I really needed to have my 62RI tele permanently set up tuned a whole step down. This meant I needed a new tele... ...And here it is. Not the best looking thing in the world (and I didn't get any knobs yet, ha ha), but pretty cool. My guitar tech put it together for me on the weekend and I picked 'er up today. It's a tele body (routed for a power-bridge, though there isn't one in there), a standard tele bridge-plate, individual barrel-saddles, a nice Bakelite Esquire pickguard, standard tele neck (sanded down a bit though), a Bareknuckle Pickups Esquire pickup in the bridge and... A secret humbucker hidden in the neck position under the pick-guard! The Bareknuckle bridge pickup is the best sounding tele pickup I've ever heard. I'm sold. I will be getting more of their stuff. It is twangy, but super thick and just loves effects, etc. The middle position also rocks - it's very Keef, and super usable. The neck on its own isn't that great, but it doesn't matter because the other two sound wicked. So there we go. Now I'm going to be bringing four guitars to every show (technically six, since the lap steel is mine and one of the Les Pauls our 2nd guitarist plays is also mine). That's to go along with both amps and all three pedalboards. Our singer says no more This is the last one allowed Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
