Squier 2017 HH FSR Tele, Ebony Black with Black Pickguard and Headstock

From Squier:
The Limited Edition Squier Affinity Series Telecaster HH, with Matching Headstock, is a solid Squier player with modern aesthetic style. The humbucker set up is unique in that these were wound specifically for this Factory Special Run (FSR). They are sweet, and they are in a body familiar to every tele player in the world. So if you play tele, you, too, can do a little shredding and play screaming leads, with an ax you know….and if you never played guitar, this is a great place to start…..
From LGR:
This is a used guitar, but it is not an old guitar. I found it at auction. It has a few paint chips/flaws as shown in the pictures, but otherwise it is almost new. The Humbuckers are sweet….. not a typical Tele…..

Thru-Body or Thru-Bridge Strings?

There is no definitive way to determine what is best but there are physics involved, so they are “different’. Here are some thoughts, gleaned from web telecaster communities…

On a thru-body configuration, the strings press/pull the bridge towards the body, thereby exerting greater pressure on the saddles, a deep angle, which would generate more sustain. On a thru-body the bridge would sit relatively stable from just string tension, without screws. This would also increase the tension of the strings, giving more “twang”, but making them harder to bend.

On a thru-bridge, the strings pull the whole bridge away from the body (it is only held in place by the mounting screws which would theoretically decrease sustain. This would also indicate less tension on the strings, thus making it easier to bend….

LGR Refurbished Guitars

This is a Lorien Guitar Recovery refurbished used guitar. Every one of our refurbished guitars is cleaned, polished, and repaired, if needed. All electronics are cleaned and tested, and all non-working or deteriorating parts are replaced. We then restring it with quality strings, tune and test. Our refurbished guitars are guaranteed for 30 days from delivery against any failure in playability.

These are a great deal for anyone that wants a quality guitar with a limited budget, or someone who wants to learn, and needs a guitar that is affordable and playable. Don’t buy cheap instruments, buy used. Most cheap guitars are not really playable, and often get in the way of learning.

I believe every guitar should have a second chance, and every aspiring guitar player, should have a chance to buy a good guitar, at a fair price…. 

I offer my guitars at a fair price, but open the option for a best offer. I always reject lowball offers, but always consider honest ones. Try it, I may be in a good mood today!

Thanks for Looking…
