    ErikWasser,

    Thanks for the Tele clip. "Don't Worry Baby" is an absolutely classic Brian Wilson chart. You nailed it. Again, thanks.

    I think a sticky thread should deal with FAQs, but maybe I don’t know the rules for sticky’s on this forum. Really I’m not trying to upset anyone. If the thread is so active it would float to the top anyway, without being a sticky. I just don’t understand. Just seems weird to me.

    There are a lot of great teles here! I love the idea of the tele, but I don’t care for the 25.5” scale. I started out playing on a no-name Floyd Rose equipped strat copy but once I found a 24.75” I haven’t looked back. Thought about a Warmoth conversion neck partscaster but haven’t convinced myself I need one yet.

    Interesting! I'm the other way 'round. I was wondering why I liked my L5 neck better than my 335, and concluded it was partly the 25 1/2" scale of the L5.

    It's harder to find 25 1/2" archtops than it is to order a 24 3/4" Tele conversion neck and bolt it on. It would be nice if Eastman or Godin or Ibanez made an affordable archtop with a long scale.

    Hi ! Bill Frisell... what an amazing musicien !
    Last year I owned a wonderfull Maybach Teleman T54, much better than all the fender (including custom shop and masterbuilt) I've ever tried. Made in Europe, it goes with Ambers handmade pickups (like the original telecasters) and sugar pine body (like the original fenders !), it sounds great for jazz and so more. A truely wonderfull guitar with an amazing sustain ! My first with a maple fretboard (I usually prefer Ebony)... but I was really captivated.

    Not to be compared with some of the beauties on this thread, I think this CV tele became something interesting once I placed a Lollar CC in the neck.
    At this point it had a JAG/Baytone CC bridge pickup in the first position. Great visual match ... but under powered when paired with the Lollar CC pickup in the neck. (The output ratings for the Lollar are only 3.2 K but with its unconventional 38 gauge wire looking to those numbers you end up comparing oranges to apples.) I had to put a SD Quarter Pound for Tele in there before I got the perceivable output close to matching.

    With a Lollar Blade Steel pickup in the bridge. Too bright for a excellent match with that neck pickup in my books. Some say that the pickup was made to pair with the CC neck but actually the BS pickup was made first and is just generally recommended as a foil to the CC neck because its output matches.

    It IS a great pickup. Loud, clean and bright with some aggressive attack. Sounded great for slide. It would be fantastic in an Esquire where you set up your EQ for this single pickup or on a guitar with a separate tone control to dial it down a bit. But when paired with the CC neck pickup and amp settings that suited it, it seemed like I was always putting on a "different hat" when changing pickup positions.

    I‘ve found classical, vintage type Pickups (Alnico5 neck, Alnico3 bridge), correct outputs and wires work perfect and better than different pickup types. The trick are different picking positions, the use of tone/volume control and dynamic playing- you‘ll achieve that pure special tone you can only get from a (vintage type) Telecaster. Listen to Julian Lage. And check this:

    It's a TK Smith C.A.R.-Pickup (and that pickguard looks also like a Smith custom pickguard).
    Those Pickups are late 40's sounding, inspired by the great Paul Bigsby Pickups.

    I've already posted my single-neck-humbucker-semi-hlloww jazz Tele; last weekend I picked up my other Tele, a Squier Affinity, which lived at the rehearsal place for my old band. It was my dipping-a-toe-in-the-water Tele. I swapped out the electronics for Dimarzio Area T pickups, CTS pots, 4 way switch, etc. Hadn't played it in a couple of years; doggone what a nice sounding Tele! The neck is very narrow, a shade under 1 5/8" at the nut, which I recall disliking but on getting the guitar back I really don't notice it- even though my other Tele has a 1 3/4 Warmoth neck! The surprising thing is how heavy it is, has to be near 8 lbs.

    And oddly enough, with the Area T pickups and shielding my quietest and least hummy guitar is a Tele!

    I don't care much for the "Shawbucker" neck pickup. It's too thick sounding.
    But, I rarely use it anyway.
    The single coil is great!

    I like the fingerboard radius: 9.5" to 14" Compound Radius (241 mm-355.6 mm)
    and the
    Neck Shape: Compound Back Shape, Modern "C" to "D"

    It's the only Tele I own and the only one I've ever played.
