Got some barrels for the road worn tele and other than the intonation being very good with the angled barrels I cannot tell any tonal difference.

I have a 2012 or 2013 road worn and the stock barrels are the thinner style for some reason fender changed them at least the majority of pics I see have the larger barrels. This guitar sounds great now but it sounded great before. I got them from GF and I am no longer curious about them.

I think I like the tilted look for some reason. Makes it look mean like the bus in the movie Slap Shot with the hanson brothers.

Yeah, not much tonal difference at all with titanium.

But they use that stuff too make fighter planes, so it's got THAT going for it. And you're out $20 or more, so the seller has THAT going for 'em :o/


Pinetree digs HANSON?

Good Lord.

I should probly die now. There's nothing left to see here.

I use unobtanium saddles on *all* my guitars.
The tone and sustain is absolutely incredible.

I was making a joke, but not directed *at* you.

No offence intended.
