Joyce,


What a classic beauty and I find the humbucker at the neck a very tempting option. I'm with you, if Larrivee would take the body/neck work done for the Seymour Duncan 35 and issue a T-style I'd be GASing for that...

Here is my '52 reissue Hot Rod Tele. Am so looking forward to Larrivee entry to this style.

That's an awesome looking Tele...but it begs the question - why should Larrivee reinvent the wheel? What can they add to the Telecaster formula that hasn't been done already (or that Fender isn't already doing in triplicate - what with so many Tele and Strat models in their production lines at every price point)?

I suspect this is why Larrivee WON'T be doing something like this. Fender has more than covered all the Tele and Strat bases... JMHO

Another big G&L fan here some shots of a few ...

ASAT Classic



ASAT Bluesboy semi



ASAT Bluesboy solid



ASAT Classic Custom





It would be interesting to see what Larrivees' slant on the tele format might be, perhaps a hybrid Les Paul / Tele style ?

When I responded to JOYCEinNS's post above, I hadn't seen the info about the Tele-style guitar that Larrivee IS building with Seymour Duncan, called the SD35 (and of course, it's a limited edition of only 35...I haven't seen the price yet, but it's got to be a pretty penny since it's a limited edition, AND it comes with an extra set of pickups and an extra control plate loaded with different pots with solderless connections, so it will be easy to try different combinations.

Anyone know any more about this? There's a thread about it in the main guitar forum, but no more information than what I've posted here.

The telecaster is such a versatile electric guitar because it can play any style of modern music with an almost unmatched clarity that is very addictive. I also believe it has the widest dynamic range of any electric. The traditional vs modern bridge is personal taste and one is not superior in tone over the other. Fender made a recent tele model with a strat hardtail bridge and a traditional bridge pickup mounted directly to the body. Blindfolded you would know immediately it was all telecaster. For an invaluable reference of early telecasters, strats and fender amps check out Jim Weider's "Get That Classic Fender Sound" it is a mix of guitars and amps plus some very nice telecaster standards from Steve Cropper, Robbie Roberston and others. The enclosed printed tab is pretty darn accurate too.

Hey Southpaw,

I noticed your classic has a cover on the neck pup.  Is that original, a cover you added, or replacement pup?

BTW I'm a southpaw too, just learned the guitar right handed because, at 12 yrs. old, I didn't know there was an option (and probably couldn't have found one if I had known).

They're Wilde noise free pickups, L200TL bridge and L202N-chrome in the neck.

Stop it all of you!!!   mad  Argh!!!  I never get the urge to play electric.  I've owned one and it was for about 3 months back in 1985.  Then you guys have to go and post all those shots of Teles!!!!  It's really the only electric that turns me on.  I like the plain old standard ones with the maple fretboard, mmmmm!!!!  Yummy! 

And now Larrivee is going to make one???   crying

Don't worry ... most of us mere mortals won't be able to afford it (the Seymour Duncan limited edition ones).  crying

Southpaw Guy, I would LOVE to come over and play some of your lefty guitars (and I'd bring a few of mine along for you to try out, too!).

Wow. 

The G&L's alone are amazing.

I used to have a Heritage 535. Pretty nice guitar, but it had a couple dead spots/notes on the neck that drove me nuts, so I sold it...sometimes regret that.

Some quick and dirty pics of my "Shooting Star Custom Caster".  I completed it last Feb.

Neck and body and most hardware is from Warmoth.  The body was purchased already finished but I tinted, finished, and fret-dressed the neck myself.  Most parts are vintage specs except I installed 6 modern block saddles.  The neck is Warmoth "vintage modern" with 10 - 16 compound radius.  Both PUPS are Seymour Duncan "Alnico II pro for Tele".  I installed a 4-way switching configuration in it.  It has great Tele tone and plays great too.

The pics aren't that great.  The color of the finish is actually much nicer and the grain shows through better than in the pics.

Became a Shooting Star when I got my 1st guitar.

Still shooting for stardom after all this time.
If I never make it, I'll still be fine.

Some updated pics of my Warmoth flamed walnut Tele with newly added pickguard...Lollar Special T in bridge and Rio Grande Vintage Tallboy in neck with a 4-way switch (...and yes, the switch tip fell off during some of the pictures!).

Just finished playing my G&L ASAT Classic Bluesboy.  I at first had a hard time adjusting to an electric, but it so easy to play.  And, the sounds I can get out of my little VOX VT15 are truly amazing.
