I regret I never heard about the custom shop Jeff Beck Esquire copies in 2006 at the time.

35 years of strats and I finally found a tele I liked , it's the pro 2. I'm able to get great tones from every position, blues, Funk, hard rock, everything but metal. Now I'm curious about the vintage style models in the vintera line. Anybody able to tell me how much difference in the tone, and what style of music the vintage models are best for?

I took me 35 years to finally appreciate the Telecaster, now I don't have any use for my Les Paul. When I go from my tele to the Les Paul it just sounds dull, and the bottom doesn't have any definition. Selling the Les Paul to fund a tele build.

That looks very cool.
As said many times before - I really do love single p/up guitars..
What bridge is that?
