    Re: Just Scored a Killer Tele on Ebay!

    They are actually humbuckers....take alook on your average P-bass.
    Leo made some nifty sounding pickups......and those G&L pickups sounds very good and has their very own vibe.
    By the way if the Pots are 250K switch to 500 to get more life to them.

        Yep like the P-bass pickup.
        wide-aperture single-coils that are louder and fatter than Strat pickups. The Z pickupsí separated-coil configuration enhances the highs and lows, and because the two coils are wound in opposite directions, each pickup is humbucking. Itís a great recipe.
        In the words of old Joe Gore.

            Would you guys go with the white pickguard, solid black, or black moto pearl?
            I still can't believe it's only $615! AND, I don't have to change the pickups.
            G&L uses either their own highquality designs, or U.S. Duncans. I've played those Z pickups before. I like the fact that you can back them down to the output of a regular Tele, or turn them all the way up and push your amp harder like a humbucker. And yes, it's alder, not ash. I'll just have to wear sunglasses when I play it. LOL

              I think I would stick with the white pickguard.

              That's a sweet catch GJ!!!

                I personally think a black pickguard, but thats just me...i rekon it would give it a less fancy more cool look...not that it doesnt already look cool as but thats what i would do.

                Awesome score man, love it how you made a last minute (literally) decision! Take that women who think men are indecisive :P

                  I'm leaning toward a G&L 3 ply black pickguard, myself! For the exact reasons you pointed out.

                  As for the aquisition...I really was looking for a Z-3, but didn't decide on this one till 45 seconds before the auction ended. What I didn't tell you, which makes it even more crazy, is that I bought it on the very day I did my taxes, and was liquidating a good chunk of change to pay my end of year tax balloon payment.
                  On the day I commited to this guitar, I also wrote a check for $2700, which translates to "living by the seat of your pants!" It doesn't matter tho, because I sold about $2300 worth of gear last week. Talk about a crazy hobby! I do know that the Tele is going to be well used!

                      dont like the color, but that guitar for that price you could get it repainted, or sell it for a profit and buy a different one.!
