NGD (used)

Hi Brian,
Happy NGD :partying_face: :sunglasses:
I wish you a lot of time together :smiley:

And don’t abuse me to just play some chords and notes neatly or sloppy in this topic for a sound idea… :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

OUCH…so big…that must have hurt…have you finished sewing it up yet? …or was it easier now because you were now allowed to use wood glue :laughing:

Enjoy…and now looking for Jenny apparently he also has a new guitar and I also want to know more about the playability of those other length guitars that I have heard Lieven talk about several times and Richard now too…I so hope they come also very lightweight (less than 2.35 kg)

Greetings

Aha! Brian has been bitten!
Brain, enjoy your beautiful addition to the family. The G&L ASATs have a well-deserved reputation and you scored it at a great price. Not that I am partial to G&L or anything.
@TheMadman_tobyjenner
The G&L V12 is a very similar shape to the Jazzmasters and jaguars, but more versatile. The G&L Doheny is also similar it you want to explore the surf sound.
Not that I am partial to G&L or anything. :joy:

'cos I didn’t nick it? :open_mouth:

Cheers @Richard_close2u sorted. And I’m having fun :smiley:

things seem stable and you’ll forgive me if I don’t do the experiment :wink:

thanks Mari, although this was not my chosen colour. (it’s ‘sea-green’ btw) My 'Daphne blue one has faded nicely to a dirty grey I like and no doubt this will fade too, as it’s kept in the window bay :smiley:

‘Setting up’ is a bit of a stretch, but it did please me that I was able give it a good once-over looking for the main points that I would have been clueless about a couple of years ago :smiley:

There’s always a ‘trend’ :laughing: I’ll wheel it out at the OM at the latest :smiley:

You remind me of when I was sent out to the Outback in Australia as a junior doctor and had to undertake postpartum ‘repairs’ without previous experience. An experience I, and I’m sure the poor mothers even more, would prefer to forget :roll_eyes:

Mange tak min ven :smiley:
But then again, we know everything looks good on me (even fat Blues bros. :rofl:)

Cheers Robert, I had forgotten you ‘own stock’ in that company :rofl:

Happy NGD Brian. Sorry to read that the Thomann one didn’t work out but that is a pretty sexy lady you have there.

Also, welcome to the G&L Tele Club. Two members strong so far and both off a Richard recommendation.

Nice price as well, especially that extra £30 off. Sweet!

Are you talking about the rubber ‘nipple’ or the whole switch? :thinking:

Vielen Dank, @NicoleKKB :smiley:
I actually prefer the German ‘High-time’ over Honeymoon or lune de miel :wink:

Who else? :thinking:
I was happy with @Richard_close2u’s recommendation for my first leccy too, the Hagström Viking, although a large part of that was for the looks and name/heritage. I tell myself this one is for a more comfortable play, with improved sound and pleasing controls.
We should call ourselves the Terrible Tele Tubbies for our next performance :laughing:
If I bring my amp, we’ll sound Boss too! :roll_eyes:

:rofl: :rofl: What a great name. Surely for that we’ll need outfits? :smiley:

Me but other members are welcome also. :smiley:

I’ve got the stuffing sorted out- Just need a stretchy fleece and a ‘thing’ on my head :rofl:
Goodness, for some reason I had it in mind you had a Squier. Goes to show I was focusing more on your amp than axe :wink:

Just the plastic bit…

Why did I even ask :rofl: Well, really just to test a theory. It’s said that Leo Fender perfected his vision of what his guitars should be at G&L. So I was wondering if he considered the fact the plastic knob falls off the pickup selector on Teles as a flaw or a feature :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Because guitar enthusiasts are some of the saddest sods in the evolutionary pond…
nevertheless, I did the experiment just now and pulled the knob (firm enough not to fall off unless you’re ‘windmilling’)
In the pic you can see that Leo did indeed improve the design, whilst keeping traditionalists happy:
It’s a cross-shaped slot underneath with a wide (loose) and narrow (tight) option.
Oh my, such attention to detail :rofl:

Just out of curiosity. Why would you want your knob to fly off?

Oh no! I’ve been drawn in.

Hey, I’ve got gills, legs AND a tail! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Thanks for the experiment, looks like Leo did fix it!

I dunno, why would you want your knob to fly off? :rofl:
