I've been downsizing most of my gear collection as I'm slowly moving over to the states. However I needed at least one humbucker guitar and I wanted something a little different. I picked this up for a pretty good price.
1975 Fender Telecaster Deluxe
It's all stock and weighs 8lbs so shouldn't be a boat anchor. It'll be delivered friday morning so will update then. _________________ www.gabrielwareing.com

The vintage gear market in the UK and the exchange rate with the dollar actually brought the price of this down to $1000 less than the average price on reverb in the states, so was a nice deal in the end.
But Benecol is right, I'll be taking this as my hand luggage when I fly over anyway so no need to deal with import things.
It's the one from thefretboard yeah! Almost traded my Gibson + cash for it but it wasn't going to be the best financial deal, but the local sale meant I had cash to bargain with and that brought the cost down significantly, meaning I came out of the Gibson sale and Fender purchase having made a little profit which is nice.
The guitar is getting delivered tomorrow morning, so we'll see what it's like when it arrives. _________________ www.gabrielwareing.com
It arrived yesterday morning, I'm visiting my sister at the moment before I fly out so no chance to play through an amp but through my little vox amplug they sound really cool. Kind of like a telecaster with a lot more bottom end, more scooped sounding then traditional humbuckers. It's a really cool guitar. The neck tone is shorting when it's on 0 so I'm assuming the cap is making contact with the body of the pot on both ends, so when I have more time and some tools I'll take it apart and sort that, but besides that it's very nice. _________________ www.gabrielwareing.com

I saw 3-piece band in Camden a few weeks ago, and the guitarist had one of these:
The look AND sound had me making some serious plans. He was running through a darn Marshall Mode4 head (regarded as pony, although I've never played one) and it sounded fucking GREAT.
Turns out these reissue don't even have 'proper' Widerangers, which is what I thought the source of the magic was. Couldn't tell if it was an original or reisssue... so confuse. Maybe those amps actually sound good when dialled-in?
