I was surfing through the Glendale Guitar website and was looking at their blackguard telecaster. Man, that thing looks beautiful. I was wondering if anyone in here had any experience with those guitars.
mrdownchild, All I can say to you is Dale Clark makes incredible products. If you were to invest in a Glendale Guitar..you will have have it for the rest of your life and cherish it every time you play it.. Rick
That neck is very nice and works great with 11 guage strings. But as I have learned more about setups over the time I found the fretboard lacks the required amout of relief, it's straight as an arrow unloaded and with the truss rod open, I only realised this when I recently switched to 9s to see if I like them. While this might be a one off issue for a parts sale, I doubt this would happen on a complete guitar put together by Dale himself.
To Fix this issue I'd have to get the fretboard replained, go with an oil finish for just the finger board, refretted to taste. That would make it pefect for me as I really do love it's nocaster big but boat shaped neck profile. All this only after I get my EJVT which in theory to me is what I think I'd like. Having said all that I wouldn't be surprised if I end up asking Dale to build me a great blackguard, for some reason I still have a lot of faith in a Glendale custom.

In keeping with the current trend of zombie threads......here is another!! Fresh from 8 1/2 years ago..
I've been putting Glendale bridges & saddles on all my Tele's. Always wanted one of his full guitars. I spoke with Dale yesterday about what I wanted.
I have one of his "Raw Deal" Tele's with a Humbucker at the neck on order with him as of yesterday. He let me pick out an already finished neck which is a magnificent thing of beauty! I also picked a Paulownia that he will finish in Raw Deal Butterscotch......
More in a few months..
The above link didn't seem to work.... but here is a newer link :

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
