Just toying around a bit on the "real" American made 1992 Telecaster. I guess now parts for the American Fender products are really not all made in America these days. Maybe like the strings.
Anyway, had a couple of cups of Japanese sake so I named it...

Like your headstock on it. Give it a touch of class. So do go to the NAMM in Calif. ?

Checked out the YT . You really a fine guitar player, me not so much, but its a hobby for me. The alinco 5 pickups are good and have been around for years. The Chinese know that an put them in their guitars, but the copper wiring is what kills the true benefit of having Alinco 5 pickups.

Nice playing , dude

Nice touch. You sound like Chet Atkins in his early years, and that's a good thing. Not many people can pick that kind of -- what to call it -- tremolo picking? You have a lot of talent. Keep creating

Lost track of my 69 blond Tele., While doing a lot of session work...

I made it a Frankenstin w 3 pickups..DiMarzio Dist .Humbucking at neck, covers off...Strat pickup Midway/center...Tell pickup bridge position.

Copper (?) foil inside sheilding...5 way switch, and on and off switch. I have a photo buried in a trunk, but will try n post it soon.

Last seen in Detroit in 1979. First, a collector bought it...then heard Roy Bucannan bought it...then rumored to make it to the U.K and Jimmy Page...but I never saw it again.

*If anyone sees it...Please let me know

Nice that you have a passion for guitars. My Husband is a guitarist and enjoys working on guitars, fixing them and customizing them for friends. Adding a pic of a really cool guitar I saw on facebook.

My axe of choice is a my Tele, it's from Mexico (a tequila-caster), but it's from a batch that was rumored to have been sent to California for construction due to a fire at the Mexican workshop.

To my knowledge Fender has not confirmed these rumors, but I swear that this one plays better than any other I've had my hands on.
