Agree.

But very cool video!

Oof!

I haven't got $2000 lying around at the moment, but it'd be an absolute joy of a project to return that to stock.

I'd be torn between filling and touching up the paint between the trem and the scratchplate, or just admitting a certain amount of defeat and hiding the past atrocities with a sticker ;)

The worst part of this hack job is that this 64 Tele once belonged to Mike Bloomfield. It's all over the Highway 61 Revisited album, it was used onstage at the infamous Newport Folk performance when Dylan "went electric", and on the first Paul Butterfield Blues Band record. Worse still, it was John Nuese (Flying Burrito Brothers) the lefty guitarist he traded this to who did the "mod".

Oh my god, are you serious about this!!??

I have GAS'd over that guitar while watching Bloomfield RIP IT UP alongside Dylan!!!!
It's true. Here's a interesting video about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W5oCY-1dnso" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

There's alot going on there! That single coil right by the neck is the worst part; I'm thinking it will make the neck a little unstable.
