Ok first, no pics yet. Generally my wife does all the picture taking on the gigs. And she hasn't made it out.

Second --- holy moly!! What a guitar! I've never considered myself a "Tele Player". I've had many many fine Telecaster guitars. From Fender to G&L, and even a custom build. And they are all gone (well, not the custom build). But I've never had one that made me want to talk about it. And this one just makes me all giddy and talk-itty. Played it the last two Saturdays. After the gig last week I kept saying, "I really like this guitar!" After last night it was, "I REALLY like this guitar". It makes me play differently, for sure. Maybe the fact that it plays the easiest of all my guitars, the RS2 included, helps. Or it's just new. Not sure. But it's a complete joy to play. And so light I barely know it's around the neck. Should help in the chiropractor vein, for sure!! Pics when I get them. In the meantime, how about some Monday morning neat eats?

I've had the pleasure of playing 3 different Bakersfield so far.By far the best tele style guitars I've played with the exception of the partscaster I've put together for myself and a couple for friends...just sayin.

Thanks for the donut breakfast, nice account, looking forard to pics. Anyone considering a Tele style guitar would be doing themselves a disservice not to try a Bakersfield - if they can find one tho I'm confident enough to recommend one site unseen but only if you want a Tele-style guitar
