Oddly this sub requires that you even post an explanation about why something is unexpected, so better complain with the mods.

So there were those 2 amazing people, which I consider some sort of gurus for me, that were my teachers when I graduated as a Yoga instructor that used to say: Yoga is how you prepare your body for the real yoga, that is meditation. Just by sitting cross legged in meditation, let’s say, for 15 minutes after the practice (could be even 10 or 5 if you can’t afford the time) would greatly enhance the post practice feel good vibe ;)

“But the digital platforms also need news. Users would find Google or Facebook far less helpful if no news appeared on their feeds or in their search results. More than half the Australian population finds news via the platforms, the 2019 University of Canberra digital news report found. The platforms monetise these audiences by selling advertising against the attention paid to news. They also collect vast amounts of data about those readers, which helps them target advertising and become even more dominant in the advertising market that once paid for the production of news. Excluding classifieds, the ACCC estimates that Google collects 47% of all online advertising in Australia; Facebook collects 21%.” https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2020/sep/05/why-google-and-facebook-are-being-asked-to-pay-for-the-news-they-use-explainer

As matter of fact, apparently he will: "The All-terrain Competition Study has been undertaken by Singer, in partnership with renowned 911 rally specialist Richard Tuthill, in response to the request from their client for modifications to his air-cooled Porsche 911 that would enable the car to compete in off-road racing and to demonstrate extensive all-terrain exploration capabilities. To highlight the broad repertoire of the ACS, the client has commissioned two machines, one – in Singer’s iconic Parallax White – focused on high-speed desert rallying and a second – in Corsica Red – configured for high-speed, high-grip tarmac events and disciplines. Porsche 911s prepared by UK-based off-road competition specialist Richard Tuthill have dominated rally events for decades, with recent victory in the 2019 East African Safari Classic marking a remarkable 4th win in the gruelling 5000km event across Kenya and Tanzania. These successes sit alongside deep expertise from the world of WRC competition and events such as the Paris-Dakar." https://singervehicledesign.com/blog/2021/01/05/all-terrain-competition-study-acs-enables-off-road-racing/

“Each Singer vehicle is made with incredible attention to detail and known to be priced well into the millions. Singer didn't include any pricing with its press release, but seeing as the ACS was created for a single customer, it's likely we'll never find out exactly how many millions it cost. Insider has reached out to Singer for pricing information and will update if we hear back.” https://www.google.com.br/amp/s/www.businessinsider.com/singer-porsche-911-acs-all-terrain-one-off-rally-car-2021-1%3famp

Gotta love this guy. In such a small time we had the pleasure to have him walking this Earth he did so many unbelieavable quality music it’s mind blowing. Also helped me through some very dark times, in special the murder of a cousin and a school friend (the 2 events happened in less than one month) in the early 2000’s. Just imagine the potential if he had more time to work his craft. Btw, “Lover You Should’ve Come Over” might just be my favorite song of all time. Have a great day!

I’m also a huge Queen fan. Fun fact about Freddie’s Tele: on “Queen Unseen: My Life with the Greatest Rock Band of the 20th Century” by Peter Hince (Queen’s roadie), he says that once he teased Freddie about the fact that he looked like a faggot playing Crazy Little Thing Called Love with an acoustic guitar on stage. Freddie agreed and ordered him to find a Tele that was not too heavy. Thus that image of him playing the white Tele was born. Sometimes Brian May would also play a black Tele on that song.

Good day folks, How you’re doing? So, I had this idea for a friendly chat with you fellow Telecaster lovers about who were your inspirations to play this guitar model. If I’m starting I would say that besides the fella pictured on the post, who I’m sure needs no introduction, I think the main ones would have been Robbie Robertson from The Band, early Zeppelin Jimmy Page, Joe Strummer from The Clash, David Gilmour (even if it’s not his main axe), George Harrison and the late great 90’s artist Jeff Buckley. Also, gotta mention who might be for me the greatest Tele player in recent times: Greg Koch. I also love to play Neil Young stuff and even if he used a Tele just briefly, I think this guitar’s sound fits perfectly for that kind of music. There are many others of course and those are just some of the first who came to mind. What about you? Who inspired you to pick up a Tele?

Cool. If you look my previous posts there’s one about a CV Strat that I modded heavily recently . You can really go a long way upgrading those cheaper guitars and making them sometimes sound better than more expensive ones.

Oh... Sorry. In this case if think you should totally go for it. I own 5 guitars at the moment and all of them sound really good with this amp, the Tele being no exception. It can sound really sweet and warm on the neck on cleaner settings but can also cut “like a Katana” on the bridge pickup with some dirt. Open G tuning and mid posich will give you that classic Keef sound. I consider the Tele to be my most versatile guitar. Good luck on finding one that you like!

Well, I really just bought this amp like 1 month ago so I still have a lot to learn. But I could say, at least for me it’s not so easy to use it “just like an amp”... for better results is best to create patches via Tone Studio and upload them into the amp. If the idea of doing a lot of tinkering doesn’t botter you, it can surely create lots of amazing tones. For a more “plug and play” experience, I’d look somewhere else.

I like them a lot. They certainly “opened” the guitar’s sound a lot. They’re bright and low output... the sound doensn’t differ too much between the positions, but it’s warm, early Strats type of tone. Perhaps something like the Texas Specials or those “60s” style pickups would serve you well. Ps - I love this single ply pickguards on 50s style strats, it’s really cool!

I posted on the Fender sub back then, check my previous posts for a photo with all the updates. But basically it has 59 Pure Vintage pickups, cts/orange drop electric parts, pure steel bridge block, etc... and it’s a killer guitar now (not that it was bad stock).

Hi there. The colour varies slightly with different ambient light, but it has this MK vibe, sure. I think Fender calls it “white blonde” on this model.

Yeah, I have done this to other guitars of mine, either by putting a Graphtech or real bone and it really does change something in the sound. I think I didn’t messed this one (except having it sanded/lowered) because it looks so cool in black, but certainly still consider the possibility. Have lots of fun with yours!

The Classic Vibe 50s comes with a vintage style 8 screw pickguard, while the typical Fender one has 11... so, yes, in this case would not be swappable, you’d have to look for one with those specs or maybe order a custom one. About the bigger pots on this electric kit I had installed, it was just necessary to widen the holes related to the vol/tone/tone a little bit, but was able to keep the original pickguard. As for the tuners, if you swap the originals for vintage style tuners, should work with no problems.

All that is pictured here fitted perfectly. The only thing that needed to be specific for the guitar was the steel bridge block. I don’t know about Fender components not fitting Squiers, I guess that might be a problem if you were considering replacing the entire bridge for example. Anyway, as said, all the components featured here fitted the guitar perfectly.
