That'd look sick, and would make a nice noise with your metal picks slapping it, CLACK CLACK

You might get hit by lightning though

I can't figure out whether or not I'm being mocked here.

A lot of the ones I can find online are proper shiny mirrored guards, which isn't what I want. Something a little bit dull and fucked looking like this would be cool:

no mocking!

You can always just take some fine-ish sandpaper to it to scuff and matte it up, eeeasy

I think Joe Bilge actually has a plain red guard on (presumably) that same Tele nowadays:

He builds most of his gear himself as well, AFAIK!

I think I will change the pickguard. This one is aftermarket. It's all original apart from the pickguard and the pickup switch tip, apparently. Considering changing it back to stock (black single ply) or maybe an aluminium/chrome guard.



Go with leopard print!


though black single ply is cool

I don't think you're the mirror guard type.

I think the metal guard would be fantastic. I'm not into bashing aesthetics, so I'll just say that the blonde/natural telecaster blackguard look is certainly a solid classic, but it's really a joy to see that finish paired with anything a little more daring. I actually liked the natural/tort that it showed up in though.

Good God, I hate those old jack sockets, almost as much as I hate the fact people/companies still install and use them by choice

I've put football jack plates on every Tele I've ever had except my Lite Ash, which has the socket. We're cool for now, but if it acts up ONE TIME, it's outta here

The “two sheds” remark was some primo Benecol content, it’s true.

Weird, it doesn’t look like it in that photo but it does already have an electro socket! The only mods I can see myself making imminently are the pickguard (actually starting to lean towards the leopard print a la Prince) and maybe switching from the ashtray style to a flat bridge plate like on my Squier. My technique is terrible and I’m finding myself whacking the upper lip more than I’d like.

I’ve got this strung up with 11s now and it feels great. The skunk stripe doesn’t feel as weird either now, presumably because it’s adjusted to a more pleasant temperature (it was freezing and covered in condensation when it arrived on Friday).
