    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.

    Exactly. The FAQs is telecasters are the coolest, so try to come to terms with it, buddy.

    Try a fine Scorch Brite pad on the back of the neck if it's sticky.

    Recently installed Fralin Steel Pole 42 pickups into my Tele. Love 'em!

    Here's Bill Frisell playing a Gibson scale length neck on a Tele. BTW, I love the look and sound of this guitar -- and Frisell's playing is of course ... well, ethereal.

    Wow! Talk about wringing emotion from a guitar.

    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.

    This is an exceptionally attractive instrument. Where did you get the hardware (Bixby/Bridgeplate) for this?

    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.

    Too many sexy teles out there!

    Here are a couple chambered, spruce tops by Marc Rutters (from Tenn.), both listed on Reverb right now (no affiliation!):

    Both look fantastic but I can't find them on reverb. Are they sold already or what do I have to search for?

    My Hahn Model C (post #1615) now sports a TV Jones Filtertron at the neck. Great pickup!
