I’ve recently started playing guitar a fair bit more (bless me father, for I have sinned) which spurred me onto a bundle of more upgrades for my Casino Coupé, the new Artec pickups sound fabulous and cost less than £30! It’s taken over from my Tele as my go to 6 string.

I got this Fender Malibu Player to maybe use in a gig . It reminds me of surfing and now I need to learn surfing as well as a single act. Surfing might be more reasonable though !

I've been recording with my Danelectro a fair bit lately, I love how a cheap instrument can sometimes just be the best one you have. Here's a clip of me and it doing "Funky Dollar Bill" by Funkadelic. My facial expression of utter struggle is real, I'm a percussion player originally. Plus the obligatory psychedelic living room pic:

"Piper At The Gates Of Danelectro" haha...

That is beautiful! I used to have a 1970s Fender Palomino acoustic with the same Strat style headstock. But mine was only a natural finish, and that Malibu is a stunner 😎

If i had gone down the guitar route it would have been one of these. Gibson Les Paul Custom as used by Peter Frampton. Love the shape, the sound and combined with a Marshall stack there's nothing else quite like it for rock.

I bought this Harley Benton Tele early in the year for £77.

They really are excellent value for the money! :biggrin:

I have too many guitars as I don't play them often. As a result I completely ignored a spam this morning with a squier paranormal cyclone.

Not interested at all, nope, not even slightly.

It's funny looking at the Telecasters on here. never felt any affinity for them (or Fender period); I was trying to work out why and I think it comes down to something a friend of mine said when I was about 15, it went something along the lines of, 'They look like toys, like those Top Twenty guitars in Woolworths.' 

Interestingly, friend went on to have a lengthy career in music, played with Sting, Numan, Tom Jones, Art Of Noise, was involved in the X-Factor/Fame Academy thing...never saw him playing a Telecaster.

I didn't care for Telecasters.

Then, I grew up and saw the light ;)

They do look a bit like something assembled in technology class at highschool :D but I love them.

The Guardian guitar

This is a guitar I have had for years as wall art; never played, it's a custom Leverty guitar, the design and artwork is by Jim Fogarty, who told me he worked on this (on & of) for over 4 years, (the grandchildren love it). Can post some build pic's if there is interest!

Mate from my last band built his own Telecaster from genuine Fender parts supplied by his son who is Manager in a large Music shop. He did the paint job himself. Cadillac red with maple neck. Until i saw and heard it i was never a Tele fan either but his was simply a cracking job. He will never sell it. Even with the discounted parts it still cost a lot of money.to put together. Can't find any pics tho.

Never was a fan of telecasters. Had a couple but never won me over. Some people sound great on them, just not for me

I was the same about Telecasters for decades... nasty twangy, shrill, uncomfortable things...

Then a few years ago I got it... USE THE TONE CONTROL. 

Now I love them. So simple, they just work and let you concentrate on PLAYING. And single coils really cut when pushed into dirt.

They are now my fave guitars.

Yes thats why I love Teles and Precisions too.

Simple plug in and play guitars.

Indeed, turns a ugly, nasty, twangy, shrill, uncomfortable thing into an muffled ugly, nasty twangy, shrill, uncomfortable thing 😀

My mate has a nice collection of guitars (he cant play very well so its just a collection) couple of Jacksons, Dave Murray sig Strat, Couple of MiM Strats and a MIM tele. Gretsch Streamliner. Vintage V100AFD, Brian May Red Special.. out of them all if I could pinch one have to say it's his Gretsch. Love that thing.

I feel like tele bridge pickups are one of those things that can be kind of obnoxious playing by yourself at home, but often exactly right in a band context. A lot of my favourite instrument sounds have this property...
