    Hi everybody!
    Magnus from Sweden here, first post but I’ve been lurking for a long time .
    I’m a professional fashion / advertising photographer (eklof.se) but my hobby is guitars and I hope to get as good at playing as I think I am at tinkering with the darn things.
    For this years summers holiday at our west-coast cottage I decided to turn a blonde CV ‘50s Tele, into my image of a ‘54 Fender Telecaster. So I bought a brand new one a couple of weeks back, replaced all hardware with fender Road-worn hardware, installed Tonerider Alnico 2 blues pickups, will install an “Art of ageing” white pick guard and then I think it’s done. Things I do to pass the time...
    Also, yes, I did a relic job on the body and the back of the neck, because that’s how I like it.
    Will post more images when it’s done.

    Thanks for having me!

    It's always a pleasure to meet somebody on here from across the pond and even more when they post pics of their gear. Welcome in Magnus, great looking Tele....:)

    Great looking Telecaster. You'll fit in well here, we like guitars, pictures and pictures of guitars.

    Welcome friend. My future son in law is from Sweden, but is going to college here in the USA. I look forward to visiting soon.
    My daughter spent last summer over there and had a wonderful time.
