1965 Super Reverb is for your enjoyment.

Well covet mine then... its up for grabs soon as I finish some rewiring on it (transitional plastic going back to cloth wire)
Damn, I used to have a Super like that.  I got it for $300 back in the late 1980's.  Put a lot of work into it (new tubes, new speakers, etc.) but ended up selling it to save the house.  Of course, I'm no longer married to the woman who drove me into the ground like that so I regret selling all the gear I did per her demand.

That Tele is sexy, dude!
Like everything you touch-- beautiful. How do you like those glendale saddles? I've heard great things
How do you like those glendale saddles?

This is the second Tele I have used them on and I will be using them on all my traditional style Tele builds from here on out.  I learned about them on this board and I love them.
Geez, you people won't let my mind rest until I've earned enough for my own!
