But it's not red
I'll paint for Mike.
I'm hoping the Vela! I've got one on the way.
I have the Vela and I recently bought a fender Baja telecaster, which is great. The Vela can get close. I have been playing both through a fender 57 custom shop deluxe amp and I can tell you the vela neck pickup through that amp is awesome Bridge sounds are different.
What didn't you like about the MFD stock ASAT classic pickups? I have a stock ASAT classic semi solid. Great guitar. Way better than a stock MIM tele in my opinion.
It's hard for me to replicate a tele sound. I don't dig the noiseless tele pickups I have or have tried. I like single coils that noise cancel in the middle switch position.
Yes. Great. Those Squier Classic Vibe tele's are hard to beat. Nicer than MIM Fender standards in my opinion, but a high end MIM is great or upgraded pickups in the standard.
I like the Baja tele. Absolutely. And a good Fender tube amp.
What a singing Bride
Is Ths "S" Shawn's sig?
509 and Johnny Hiland.
No other guitar I have played but for tele types from other companies gets a tele sound. Lots come close, but there has always been something lacking.
While some PRS guitars come close to producing a good Tele sound in some positions, If you want real authenticTele sounds in all 3 positions - You will just have to go buy one.
I found a fantastic value in the Micheal Kelly telecasters.
I have CC50 with fralins stock, alder body maple neck rosewood fret board. I cannot find a single thing I dont like about it. It also has unique electronics switching for multiple tones.
it was only $399. The thing I never liked about fenders was the narrow nut could not fret open D chord, The american specials would suit me but for $1000, I tried MK) . so MK use 43 mm nut and 22 frets unlike MIM 21 fret. the sustain and harmonics are simply top notch. he has 10 different telecaster versions to choose from. He puts in high quality boutique pickups in many of the models, duncans, fralins, so on...
the reviews confirm the high quality for almost no money. impressive value.
Coil split 57/08s in my DGT seem to do the Tele-trick for me.
I've been curious about the Vela's D-type single coil. Also thought of modding a Vela with a Fralin tele pickup in the bridge...If you could opt for a Vela with a maple board, I'd get there right now.
Great idea! Please proceed and let us know how you like it. . If you like it, I may take the plunge.
"Les, I understand you're not a Tele man. But isn't every professional musician required by the natural laws of the universe to have an exact example of every supposedly standard tone on hand?"
"Well what about a Strat?"
"You gotta be kidding."
"Well, why do you have several PRSes on hand, then, if you don't need the standard tones?"
"Because they're wooden heroin."
+1 on the wooden heroin!
I've been thinking of doing this with a Dimarzio Twang King to my Vela... I much prefer playing it to my Tele Custom, and I've got the Starla pup in my core Starla... maybe use the push/pull for series/parallel in the middle position...
Good idea...or perhaps a phase circuit? Lollar makes a humbuckers sized bridge tele pickup...
