    I already had basic knowledge of the Tele history but I learned a lot more from that video..I knew of the different wiring in the early models but not when they were changed about..I had worked on a few of them..
    Here's a story about one of them that'll make ya scream..Gotta keep in mind that this happened in about 1972 before they were considered highly collectable..
    Dude brought me one, (think a 53 or 54, don't remember)..
    Needed a little neck work but he wanted it PAINTED and RE_WIRED..I tried to talk him out of that but he was determined to get it done..So I did it..
    He's dead now and in hell..Probable where I'm headed also for doing it..

    Nice video. Kudos to the host for crediting his sources at the end. Too few youtoob people do that.

    Incidentally, I finally walked down to the Met last week to see the Play It Loud exhibit, and got to see the snakehead prototype -- and many other cool/historic instruments -- in person. I recommend it to anyone who will be in New York before it leaves town.
