• THIS IS THE 25th ANNIVERSARY YEAR FOR THE LES PAUL FORUM! PLEASE CELEBRATE WITH US AND SUPPORT US WITH A DONATION TO KEEP US GOING! We've made a large financial investment to convert the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and now have to move to a new host. We also have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!
  • WE HAVE MOVED THE LES PAUL FORUM TO A NEW HOSTING PROVIDER! Let us know how things are going! Many thanks, Mike Slubowski, Admin

I don't have a scanner, or I'd share it, but you should check out page 48 in Tom Wheeler's latest book, The Fender Archives. The guitarist for The Challengers is pictured with a very, very similarly modified whiteguard Tele, which also appears to be black (or another dark, solid color). Its modified horns seem to be rounder and stubbier, though.
Sick minds thought alike, apparently!

Yes. Nacho sent me pics of that guitar from the book. For a moment we both thought it might be my guitar, but the horns aren't quite right. Would've been cool. Thanks for the heads-up.
