Yes, another snapshot into the uber-obsessed world of Rich_W.

Classic Shape/Shallow Drop 42cm, 12cm stem scattered about the floor.

BTW, the new ritchey stuff is really sweet. Stem 135g and Bars 216g. Newton stuff is a bit porky at 152g and 254g...

Actually... precedes the telecaster... the '51 "NoCaster" does not have the Telecaster insignia on its headstock... It falls between the '50 Broadcaster and '52 Telecaster. I know this may sound picky, but I'm a big time Fenderphile

Wow, that's a great guitar you got there. You don't see many of those around. But the '52 Tele is my all time favourite.
I play a Fender American Series Telecaster myself, 1996.

Enough OT :wink:

The 52 has a bit more of a translucent nitro butterscotch finish... the 51 is more solid butterscotch. Subtle differnences though. I used to have a 52 US Vintage Reissue in Copper. But sold it for this one. I also have a '62 US vintage reissue Strat... built in 1981.

BTW, take a look at the Video they did on the "Blackie" on the Fender Custom Shop Website... good stuff...

OK... now enough OT :D

How about 'debadging' the Ritchey stuff, that would look nice on any bike...

Rich,

Where did you get the stem? I wasn't aware they were available yet.

Anyway it's not a full carbon stem the Ritchey WCS 4 Axis :wink:
it's made from 2014 aluminium in the inner side and on the outer-side a layer of Carbonfibre.
