  1. I don’t know about the Jags, but from what I’ve heard online, the Vintera Tele modified is pretty much the old player series, Baja Tele, renamed.
  2. Cheaper than buying the Gibson version. Keep us posted on the outcome.
  3. A pickup replacement/upgrade is always worth it IMO, it’s the one biggest change you can make. I’ve done this many times and only once did I not notice an appreciable difference (a PRS SE Singlecut). If you like the way the 339 plays, I say go for it.
  4. Yep, although technically a Casino Coupé.
  5. Here's the thing, I have massive Gretsch GAS, but I don't play guitar in any bands (at the moment), therefore, I can't justify spending large wads of money on unnecessary musical instruments. Colour me sad . However, as an inveterate guitar tinkerer, there's always a compromise to be had and, in this instance, a Bigsby to be fitted! Colour me pleased .
  6. There is just something about an ash Tele that makes me go, “Ooh!”

    Gretsch GAS. GAH!!!

    Fortunately, on my return to GG to purchase a pedal, the above, bling-tastic guitar was gone. However, I’m now considering the slightly more subdued and somewhat cheaper...

    You’re welcome. Let us know the outcome.

    Battery Drain

    Sounds like it might be a faulty jack socket not recognising that the lead has been removed.
  10. I foolishly tried one of these today in GuitarGuitar. For the money, they're brilliant. I tried it alongside a Setzer signature and it wasn't a million miles away from being as good. Damn, it was only the mega bucks for a Setzer that was stopping me having Gretsch GAS in the first place!
  11. In answer to your question, YouTube is often your friend here, given that a picture paints a 1000 words, etc. Here’s a link to one, I’m not saying it’s the best, it’s just seems short and to the point, but you could also check out Gibson’s own LP set up measurements, there’s bound to be a set up guide on their website.
  12. You’re fine, these things are held on/down by string tension, next time you change strings, do them one at a time. I would point out, however, that the height of the stop tail should be low enough to create a decent break angle behind the tune-a-matic bridge, in the same way the headstock creates a break angle behind the nut.
  13. This thread had me playing my Tele again yesterday (it had been residing in a gig bag and not easily picked up for a quick noodle) man alive that neck pickup is an aural thing of beauty! Shame about the monkey playing it 😂.
  14. My rebuilt Tele. It was originally a Squier CV '50s, but then it evolved. The neck is original, but I changed the body for a contoured, ash body. I added DiMarzio pickups (a heavy blues Strat neck pickup and an Area Hot T in the bridge, painted to match) and a chromed brass bridge. I have also fitted a Stesbar tremolo, but I swapped back to the hardtail recently. The body was coloured with water colour paint and then Danish oil and waxed, I then added a faux binding courtesy of Humbro model paint. It sounds great, very P90 like. Here it is in both trem and hardtail guises.
