    Guitars that punch above their weight.

    Those are both really good looking Strats you've got there Gary. I'd love to test drive both of those guitars to see what those PK necks are like.

    "Tele Guy" on a slippery slope

    I've owned several Tele's for many years, but never really bonded with them. I never sold them either. I know guys will say that my '03Tom A HSH Hollow T Drop Top isn't a "True" tele in the "Classic" sense,but it's my best Tele style guitar I own. The newest Tele guitar I picked up is my '86 Fender MIJ '69RI Pink Paisley Tele, and it's the best "Classic" style tele in my collection by far. It's loaded with a set of Lollars. The Royal T in the neck, and the Vintage T in the bridge. It's also got a series toggle switch to me it even more versatile. These 2 guitars take care of all my Tele needs for sure.

    Congrats Gary!!!!! That's the choice I would have made. I've been on the lookout for a nice Gibson Goldtop like yours for a long while. I'll eventually stumble upon a good deal on one. Enjoy that beauty Gary!!!

    Guitar Shopping

    For me I'd go Gibson Goldtop. I couldn't own the MM because of the huge neck. If the neck suits you and the tone is there, the MM should be the one that goes home with you. Gary you don't want to look back and kick yourself because you passed on the MM. Don't let that MM haunt you because you might need to take a few $$$ out of the bank. Good luck Gary which ever way you decide to go.

    Congrats on a Classic and Classy looking Tele Gary. Sometimes it can take years before you pickup a guitar you haven't owned in years. Enjoy your new Tele. 😀

    My Pink Paisley Tele in action!!!

    For sure Steve. How could you NOT spot that Pink Paisley. That guitar is like a beacon in all that mayhem on stage. With that Pink Tele, you'll never be able just to blend in on stage.

    My son singing "Another Brick in the Wall" !!!

    Thanks Steve. I had no idea that Cooper tagged ABITW at the end of Schools Out. I had to look it up on Youtube.
  9. The was done as a promotional video to promote the local college where the Sound Recording Technology Studio is located. My son went in a few days before the band and tracked his vocals to the original recording and then the band went in together to track the instruments. I think is came out pretty good. I would have liked it better with all the additional facts being shown throughout the video. Here it is: https://youtu.be/QgRAlAQaVoE
  10. My son used my recently modded Fender Pink Paisley Tele this weekend for Church service. The performed a parody of the song " The Greatest Show" He's also a videographer, and he recorded some footage earlier this week, which he edited in with the live performance video. Here's the video: https://www.dropbox.com/s/kokyyosx56priem/The Greatest Show_Music Video_1.mp4?dl=0

    NOGD - Pepto Pink Paisley Tele Score!!!!!!

    Thanks. That pedal would go GREAT with my guitar. Actually I'd rather find a Blue Floral Tell to go with that Keeley pedal Then I'd really be coordinated properly.

    NOGD - Pepto Pink Paisley Tele Score!!!!!!

    Well I got my Tele back today with a few mods. 1) new nut 2) Lollar Vintage T bridge, and Royal T neck 3) brass saddles 4) new upgraded pots, wiring and caps. 5) mini toggle series switch. The guitar sounds amazing . Both pickups sound nice and full without being mushy sounding. There's a lot of definition in the notes. The neck has a really nice almost fat strat sound to it. The series switch is a really nice addition. It had more volume, adds more mids and bottom end when you need some extra kick. I really like the way this guitar turned out. Here's some pics of the guitar with the new mods. The 1st pic was from the tech before I picked it up.

    NOGD - Pepto Pink Paisley Tele Score!!!!!!

    Thanks Gary. I guess if there's are contemporary artist today that makes the Pink Paisley guitar acceptable is Brad. I still think you have have the live chops to pull it off. I think I'm borderline, so I may have to woodshed a bit before playing out

    NOGD - Pepto Pink Paisley Tele Score!!!!!!

    You're probably right, but I bet those that did were big huge burly men who would have no problem defending themselves. Sometimes guitars like this can be very polarizing,but I'm sure that was the whole reason they were made in the 1st place. You want attention, then you got it, and everything positive or negative that goes with it.

    NOGD - Pepto Pink Paisley Tele Score!!!!!!

    Thanks Jon. That's too funny!!!! I'm not sure I agree with Kiz though, as here in my neck of the woods, the rednecks and bikers kinda stay within their own. I'm sure there's a little overlap, but not much. I'm not sure which group would be more tolerant ,and which group I rather try to defend the guitar with. Either way, I'm not sure I'll have to find out any time soon.
