  1. I had a blues hawk. I liked the feel of the neck. You should enjoy yours as well. Enjoy!!
  2. I believe I have one of those jb 59 tele bridges myself and it reads about the same ohm resistance. But mine was only 30 bucks off of Craigslist 🙄
  3. Yes big pain in the *** it is for sure!
  4. I think the color is Surf Green where as the vintage green was Sea Foam. I am digging it very much. I am also surprised at how nice it feels while sitting down. It is really comfortable to play.
  5. I thought I was going to mod it a little after I got it however compared to my hot rodded tele it really holds it's own. I am stupid for not getting one sooner.
  6. Man it sure is nice and smooth. I am hoping that the neck will get acclimated to the humidity and swell a little to resolve the fret issue. How long have you had yours??
  7. My first USA Telecaster. I went for the all rosewood neck. It was a crap shoot as I knew there have been issues with the fret ends sticking out. Well that would have not been so bad had there not have been 4 silica gel packs in the case. However, I must say once it is broken in well, it is going to be very very nice. It is nice and resonate. The neck is so smooth and it really has a very resonate body and neck combo. Nothing like I have ever had before. The pick ups sound very good too. It plays so nice and smooth. The feel of the neck is really outstanding. If
  8. You seem to have an early 70's guitar. Perhaps repainted as well. I am not sure. You could take off the rear pick up cavity and take a look inside. If the elcetronics are original you might be able to pull a number off of the volume pot and do a search that way. It would at least get you in the neighborhood of when it was produced. Also the bridge is the harmonica style that was very popular in the early to mid 1970s. The fact that it had square inlays on the neck without neck binding is another give away of time period as well. It may have been painted black
  9. Curious to see what pops up. I wonder if the Hendrix Strat will be one of the items.
  10. Any way you could post a few pics? You could also take and sell it. People make project repairs all of the time. I am sure it would sell pretty easily.

    Well I must admit I got my first MIM Fender the other day. It is a 2009 72 reissue tele. Someone took and updated everything in it. So it has a bone nut, Duncan hot rails and Duncan JB Jazz neck pick up, push pull alpha pots, Joe Barden Tele bridge with the graph tech compensated saddles, locking tuners and they also copper shielded the control cavity. I was a big idiot for never looking at these MIM before. The only thing I am not 100 percent on is the 7.25 fretboard radius but I am getting used to it. I cannot believe how good it feels while sitting dow
  12. Wow....I have not been on here 8n a long time and just this week I had an issue with bppv as well. It happens only on my left side in bed or when I am laying down every now and then. Maybe like 3 times the past 4 or 5 years. Goes in about 4 days without any of the exercises. However....this time it was so severe I took and did the exercise where you are on your knees in the floor. It worked on the first try and I have not had an issue since. Anyways...it is a bizarre thing and I hate it!!
