I've got one of those older models, 65 I think. But I've always found it easier to palm mute with the ash tray off.

Nice Tele Rob. It probably has a better sound than these new Tele's do. Thanks for the pic of what a real Tele looks like...............

Thanks Billy! It's officially in semi-retirement but I played a gig with it 2 weeks ago with my new band and everyone in the band just loved the sound of it. It's a great guitar and owes me nothing!

Looks like we're looking for a bass player now. Only 800 miles north of you!

Hah! I've always been a palm muter and never could play anything with an ashtray on it.

To the OP, just play that thing, the more the better, and it will relic itself.

Like I said, I've just been palm muting for about 15 years or so...pretty much since I got my first Gibson.

Apologies to the OP for hijacking his post. Like everyone is saying, play it and let it self-relic.
