In 2004, I bought a vintage cherry sunburst Fender American Deluxe Telecaster, with a maple neck, which is still the primary guitar I use. I later had a Bigsby installed and replaced the bridge by inverting a bridge from a Fender Jaguar. I use graphite saddles and have switched out the Samarium-Colbalt noiseless pickup in the bridge for a hotter, 50s-style Broadcaster pickup; the neck pickup is still the original noiseless but if I had more money, I’d be swapping that out for the Seymour Duncan Charlie Christian humbucker pickup. The sounds you’re hearing from me, both on record and in a live setting, are all made from this guitar. I honestly think Telecasters are one of the greatest guitars ever, and I keep learning new things about them in the ten-plus years I’ve been playing one.more
Hoping to fix this little dilemma this year. Basicly, I'm very tried of a Gibson Les Paul. Don't get Me wrong, LP's are Outstanding Guitars but They weigh a TON. Then add a Bigsby !!!!!! After I replace the whole in My rack with another Tele, I want a Gibson Les Paul with P-90's and a Bigsby. Now that Ladies and Gentlemen is a Gibson Les Paul ( about a 55' or 56' modal )
