    I've heard about the dodgy ethics behind some of the rosewood harvesting, but Ballcut Indian Rosewood? That's right up there. ;)

    Behold my latest GAS victim.

    traded one of the many surplus acoustics for it, in case I do want to pick up electric at some point.

    Mint, 80s / early 90s Burny Les Paul, solid mahogony, 15mm thick maple cap, and so much humbucker goodness.

    Soooooooooooo I bought another one. Haven't pulled it apart to date it yet, but it should be early to mid 80's.

    Picked up this today. Maton have pretty much stopped production of electrics so I figured I'd grab one while I still could.

    Picked up an American Deluxe Tele from an international auction the other week. It's awesome. Modern C neck, 9.5" radius, as it pre-dates the compound radius, and a set of Samarium Cobalt Noiseless pickups that have actually surprised me at how good they sound.

    Yeah I got it for about $1200 at my door, they usually go for around the $1800-2000 plus shipping locally depending on the model and condition.
    The American Elite is the new one, and they're around the $3400 mark I think.

    Yes, that's a good price. My teacher has a fender and he was saying he needs a new one so I'd looked them up. They are about 2500 up for the American built ones.

    Picked up a new Tele today myself.

    Fender Richie Kotzen Telecaster

    It has a DiMarzio Twang King in the neck and a Chopper T in the bridge. Gold hardware, Gotoh tuners, satin finish fat neck, jumbo frets, abalone inlays, tone knob is a series/parallel switch, the good tele bridge, bound body top, rear belly cut, top body contour.

    The neck is noticeably fat, but you're used to it in no time at all as it has a pretty flat fret board. Ibanez wizard players would hate it though.

    That looks great, bit of figure in the body too.

    How do you find the Chopper T? I have one in my white partscaster and I've never really bonded with it as a Tele pickup as such. It seems to do a lot of cool stuff in its own right, and will sit under a lot of gain happily, but yeah, just seems to miss something to my ear.

    Nice.

    Fender should do more Tele's with a 12" radius.

    It has a nice little flame in the top, shows up better in real life than in the pics. I've only spent a couple of hours on it so am still yet to really dig in to the tones, but i'm a hard/heavy rock guy, so it seems to suit what i'm about. Kotzen is my favourite musician, so if I can get close to his tone, without any chance of being able to play as good as he can, i'll be a happy man.

    Feels good. :thumbup:

    The latest DIY addition to my collection.

    Started out life as a beat up old red Squier strat, now electric green inspired by Tom Delonge signature model.

    Single volume / tone pot, Seymour Duncan SH-8B Invader bridge pickup.

    Wife and kids bought me a rack for my birthday, probably because she wanted them off the couches lol.

    Nice, if anyone needed a rack, it's you. Where were they before?

    They were in their cases mainly while the kids were little. I kept the white partscaster out to play, and as a sacrifice to the small child God of destruction. They youngest has reached an age where he doesn't have compulsions to pick them up now.
