The latest and greatest reissue of the original early 50s black guard Tele, replacing the American Vintage ‘ This one has all the black guard era vibe with period correct hardware and pickups, but adds modern features such as pickup switching and the modern 9. It features a solid ash body with gloss nitrocellulose finish, 21 tall vintage fret neck that’s also nitro-finished, chunky ’52 U-shaped maple neck with 9. The Tele has always been the workhorse guitar in the Fender stable and none more than the butterscotch black guard Strat. It has all the twang you know and love in a Tele and this 9. It is set up with very low action and sounds very alive, even when unplugged.

One of the most common questions we receive at Aish. Jews do not accept Jesus as the messiah because: Jesus did not fulfill the messianic prophecies. Jesus did not embody the personal qualifications of the Messiah. Biblical verses “referring” to Jesus are mistranslations.
Kit Review: The Trill Tremolo Pedal. I was in the market for a two knob Tremolo kit and was about to suggest to MOD kits that they offer one. It was only a few days later that Guitar Kit Builder was asked to try out the brand new Trill Tremolo, so this worked out perfectly for me.

Compare this body shape, particularly the bevelling around the horns, with a later Gibson Ripper – these later Rippers have a far more sculptured look about them, although this is not always easy to see in photographs. A total of Rippers were shipped in , with the vast majority in Natural finish as seen here, although many very early ones had a tobacco or cherry sunburst finish.
See the Ripper shipping stats for further details. This is a really punchy bass; lots of Gibson low end, but with so much more higher frequencies than Gibson’s older basses. The Ripper body changed from this wider slab bodied bass, to a more sculptured version – see a Ripper with the newer body styling. The alder grain patterns on this Ripper are clearly visible through the natural finish.
Like the other 70s-designed basses, controls are scratchplate mounted, so requiring no rear control-cavity access. The Ripper humbuckers are mounted with two screws through each pickup, and into the guitar’s body wood. Not the most adjustable method Compare this or any up until at least to the pickups of a later Ripper; Gibson then mounted them directly on to the scratchplate , but now with three screws.

So this It is the reason it was prematurely retired years ago. Notice that this pickup bottom plate has the regular mounting holes , as well as the diagonal corner holes as used on early 50’s les pauls. The volume pot probably needs to be cleaned or rebuilt to make this wire harness function to it’s best and complete capability. I will give that a try here soon when I get the chance.

Frequently Asked Questions
Posted 11 February – That’s interesting you bring up the horn shape and the headstock shape. I don’t know if it has anything to do with it, but the Deluxe model and a buttload of others were made at two different factories- both Kalimazoo and Nashville. My understanding is that the Deluxe was made from almost the beginning of the Nashville coming in, but still made in ‘Kalimazzo as well at the same time.
So, to me, you would think that maybe where it was made would have something to do with the ‘radically’ different shapes, but I have seen some models that I KNOW were Kalimazzo made with the point and big headstock, and the other way around.
