My tele is a mutt I made from a lacquered alder fender body of some sort or other and a 60s RI neck. I kitted her out to 59 specs more or less with custom made angeltone early-stagger pickups and a Hovland Musicap on the tone control wired 50s style. I deviated by flipping the control panel to allow easy volume adjustment and by installing a Rutters bridge with his late 50s steel compensated saddles. She absolutely sings.
though I love this telecaster and would NEVER EVER part with her, I haven't named her. She's pretty much a studio guitar, so we're not on a first name basis. You know, cats you tour with are always better buddies than guys you work a session with. Maybe one day she'll reveal her name to me.
