    Wow, that's come a long way from Ol' Leo's original creation.
    What a beauty!

    I have a tele with humbuckers too, and love the unique tone.
    I've noticed that Telecaster players will look at it once, and then look
    away as if embarrassed. (not that I care, really)

    It's as if the Tele police had issued a citation, informing the public that
    the Tele bridge p'up is the heart of the Tele tone, and any variations to
    that formula must be outside the law, and immediately suppressed.

    I'm sympathetic to the purists (but only a little). At the same time, I'm
    no purist, and I'm no prude, and I like to defy the guitar police.
    I like a guitar with a unique tone, and I own a few, including my
    Tele Deluxe replica. Play yours in good health.

    I'll bet your Tele sounds like nothing else.
    To me, that's a virtue and makes life interesting.

    I'm no purist either.
    G&L ASAT Deluxe 2 Korina that I used to have in the past...

    Yeah, baby... that's a sexy tele also, and outside the
    normal stockade, well into the forbidden zone of unique tone.

    Gotta love it. If I bought another guitar, which doesn't seem
    likely and we don't expect it, one strong contender would be a
    G & L ASAT "blues boy" with the Leo's most recent innovation for
    the bridge p'up, and a special design hum bucker for the neck.

    something about a blonde Tele with a black p/g...
    and then give me the HB sound for the neck p'up and I'm drooling.
    Aye weel, I don't own one of these, so I read cool Telecaster threads
    like this one with enjoyment and comradeship.
