    Was jamming on my tele for a bit yesterday. Cant remember if it has 9-46 or 10-46 but im putting 10's on next time. The nocaster neck means it's not a shred stick but the strings felt a little thin on the top 3.

    thats the Ultra in Texas Tea. Very modern feeling for a tele. The 2nd is a Highway One Texas Tele. I got that one because my brother purchased a Highway One Strat back in the day and it’s a great memory I have with him. He still has it so maybe one day we’ll get together and jam again.

    I’m still playing with different gauges. Currently playing with a Hybrid Slinky 9 set. It’s like 9s on the top with a 10g set on the bottom. I’m planning to mod the Highway One a little and try to get a different feel.

    Here’s my trio. Top is a partscaster with a lefty neck, Lil 59 neck and Area T 615 bridge. Middle is an American Special with Texas Specials. Bottom is a Custom Shop with custom fat 60’s.

    these are not mine, but i LOVE these
    [​IMG]

    24 frets
    roasted maple neck
    dual access truss rod
    i think they come with locking tuners?
    accessible heal joint
    fixed or trem
    reversed headstock
    the 'correct' headstock that is on fender
    decent/great pickups
    made in Mexico (I have zero experience with any guitar made in Mexico, so dont know how they would compare to, say, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, China, Vietnam, India etc, but I've heard great things...)
    versatile, and great for rock, metal, or any other random genre

    classy, yet subtle.

    id love to see one in either robin egg blue, seafoam green, or metallic shell pink

    also here's one of my tele builds:
    k22r4los4eu61.png
    Squier body/hardware. Rio Grande Dirty Harry bridge pickup, squier neck pickup. Pearloid pickguard, warmoth neck that I dyed black and put red fret inlays into.

    I'm actually building another body for this guitar (that actually has a forearm contour) at the moment.

    Here are my two partscasters. I let my kids put stickers on the tele, then got loaded and said screw it.

    Its got a lace nitro hemi in the bridge and some no name P90 humbucker size in the neck I got for like 35 bucks. Its legit one of the best pickups Ive ever heard.

    I was originally going for the classy lady you can take home to meet mom thats a whore in the bedroom, but now it’s all whore baby. All whore.
