I have a 1993 top loaded black tele with white pickguard that i got in a trade when i decided my HSH strat was just too overwhelming & heavy. i kinda got fucked over on the trade but in the long run this guitar is so important to me. i replaced the shitty old pickups with brand new pickups from a squier classic vibe tele, and managed to fuck up the wiring so terribly that it gave both pickups a completely different tone from what they were supposed to sound like, and made the middle position half as loud as the individual pickup settings.
however, my wiring fuck up created what i now consider an essential aspect of my tone and i can't imagine sounding any way else. also the laziness of fender back in the first few years of the mexican factory paid off in my benefit, because the top loading plays into part of the incredibly unique tone of Maud, my fucked up tele.
Marcus Singletary's Custom Fender Telecaster
Guitarist Marcus Singletary's black custom Fender Telecaster was originally manufactured in Mexico. Later, Gene Parsons (drummer for rock band The Byrds and inventor of the B-bender) installed a Parsons-Green B&G double bender unit. The factory pickups were changed to Fender Noiseless pickups. The guitar can be heard on Marcus Singletary's version of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game."
Blue2 was my 2nd blue guitar but technically my 3rd electric guitar as I owned a Dame Saint M400 back in 2009 but ended up selling it so I can have this. Had it in 2013 already in blue and a maple fretboard. Lately has been my workhorse guitar since I have yet to setup the Strat. I can shred through this but I can shred better on the Strat, thing about this is, it's also as versatile and this I love strumming this more. it has a humbucker on the bridge which allows me to go heavy too.
