First up, '52 RI Hot Rod Tele. $1250 shipped and paypal'd to lower 48.

Except for the black pickguard (also comes with the stock white pickguard) and a bone nut, the guitar is stock. The mini hum sounds fantastic!

Has pick and strumming swirls and some shallow scratches show up on the back only because of the black color. they would not show on a butterscotch colored guitar. I'd rate it as 8.5. The guitar has been played a lot, including outside gigs.





Next up, a 2007 Special Run Highway One Tele with upgrades. Flame maple neck with a substantial C shape (thicker than mid-60s C shape), 9.5 radius, jumbo frets with minimal wear. The original Tele neck pickup was replaced with a VINTAGE 60's DEARMOND GOLD FOIL pickup in excellent condition that sounds superb, full yet clear and quiet. The DeArmond pickup is worth $150-$200 alone. The original brass saddles were replaced with compensated brass saddles for intonation. The output balance between bridge and neck pickups is perfect, it's an amazing match. Comes with a black hard shell Fender case. $750 shipped and paypal'd.
