Yeah actually a couple of days late (it was on the 15th), but I've been kind of busy. But I got some sweet gear for it (all for the Tele). First I got this sweet tweed hardcase for it. I also got a Fender Roadworn strap, they feel real great and looks amazing.




But the main reason I waited was because of these:




A set of Bareknuckle Yardbirds. Didn't have to install them until yesterday and today I finally got to play it. The sound is just great. Classic Tele tone, with nice twang, but they have more mids and none of the ice-pickyness. They have a great clean sound, but with some overdrive they give you an amazing bluesy crunch tone. The neck is kind of Stratty too and matches the bridge great. But that bridge pickup can do anything from classic Tele twang to that Jimmy Page, fat Tele tone. It has none of that ice-pickyness that was on my old Duncans that it came with but has lots of clairty and definition.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Yeah. But the Lite Ash are a real goldmine, they're pretty cheap but they sound and play great. Far superior to standard Mexi ones.

Yeah, well actually it was only a hardcase and the pickups. The guitar I got for about 2 weeks ago.

It sure does! I'm putting up clips as soon as I can.

I can understand that. But then again, as you said you never used it and it was too ice-picky for you. I must say, it fits me like a glove. It's in better hands now (even though you'd done a great shield job on it I must say

I love those cases. on the new gear.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

Happy Birthday Gabe, and sweet new stuff.

Speaking of tweed cases, I need to pick one up for my Tele.
#22
Awesome! HNGD!

Now we need some clips of your tele through your 18W once you put those pickups in.
