    I know it's risky, but here's a pic or two of my Fender Ultra-piccolo six-string and soprano bass amp.

    could that be consider as a trasvesty(sp?) guitar? :D

    I like the idea anyway, whats the string gauge?

    .009 to .042, like little razor blades. These are tuned rather strangely, too. E-A-D-G-B-E.

    I'd tell you what it really is, but then some mod would move it elsewhere. So it's definitely a bass.

  6. Tele bodies are sexy. When i used to play guitar...the first guitar i learned on was a Tele. Loved the shape and feel.

    Looks like someone's going for a pile-drivingly heavy country sound. :D


    I kid, I kid. I like Teles too. I'm not a fan of Les Pauls, though. Their painted, short necks feel wrong to me.

    OK, now imagine it with a tort 'guard, because it's on there now.
     
  11. I would do that, but due to similar circumstances, imagining it may cause serious GAS (intense Fender Ultra-Piccolo 6 string GAS, to be precise). Looks amazing!

    What kind of Tele is it? American? Mexican?

    Did anyone else here notice the comeback of the telecaster? For years only Strats were popular, but the Tele is back!

    Odd, that amp doesn't look like an Aguilar. Or even an Eden.

    Sweet guitar rig! Congrats!
     
  18. Nice Mungi. Do you find the string spacing at the bridge a little tight for slapping though? :)

    Seriously though that's a nice Telecaster. I've played guitar for years and they just feel right.
     

  19. I don't know, one photo of a guitar and suddenly everyone is a guitarist :meh: :bag:
