I love the feel and sound...
Pictures soon !!!!!
I love the Telecaster. I really want to pick one up soon.
Tele's are and can be cool guitars, like Strats, alot of modifications are there, one thing it definitly takes a bit more work to make a tele sing out strong
Master of the Telecaster isnt merely a slogan, its a fact of guitar playing
I like the feel, weight distribution, & the neck.
But I havent been able to get by the twang.
I want one BAD. Dont want one with humbuckers, want single coils.
Got 2 Epi T-310 Tele copies which I love, but, you cant beat the real thing.
So, as Dan put it, guess one needs to master how to manipulate a Tele.
back to the drawing board.
My 2 Tele's, '00 MIA and an '07 Spalted Maple, a most un-tele like tele; coil tapped Duncans, set neck, neck and body binding, one of my favorite guitars. Love them both, they both have great feeling necks and very nice actions.
if you like the tele but want a cheap alternative, look for a USA made Peavey Reactor. I bought one for next to nothing and it is a great guitar.
here is a couple of solutions I've seen to too much Tele Twang, first EMG Tele Sets, I am not a huge fan of their humbuckers, but man they can do absolute wonders on Tele's I have two good buddies who both have EMG sets in their Teles and wow, what a difference, Next is Noiseless tele pickups with a four way switch, Position 1, front , position 2, front and rear out of phase. position 3 normal two pickups combined, Position Four Rear,
Joe Barden Pickups is another solution to some over twang, Seymours Quarter Pounder, was another Tele that was designed for The Rev. Billy Gibbons
I just bought my first Fender ever. I must admit that the quality of this guitar is really mind blowing. I bought a custom shop Tele and it was cheaper than my Les Paul Classic Antique. It is awesome! The thing just sings.
Thanks for the options/advice Dan!
Fortunately, I do enjoy changing pups.
Just ordered a new 61 re-issue SG, so the Tele will have to go on the
back-burner for a bit. But I WILL eventually pick one up.
Recently picked up this baja tele and I'm liking it quite a bit.
nice man also liking that gold case

This is a my Nashville deluxe Tele, Sorta like having a Strat and a Tele combined, It's my second favorite guitar!
4 way switch, you can get alot out of this baby!!
OHHHH man do I ever want one of those!
hmmm not really into the teles, i like the heavier guitars bilt for metal more then the tele and that
It's actually like a strat but a bit heavier, I think I'm going to get WB to build me some custom picks for her. You would be surprised at the Tones you can coax outa it!!! It does a good job on Sabath and besides Mr. Page sounded pretty good on one!!
I think the telecaster is the most versatile guitar I've ever owned. It can approxiamate so many sounds and still sound "like a Tele". If someone held a gun to my head and said "make an entire album with one guitar", I 'd grab my tele.
I have a 69' tele (maple) weighed 6 pounds and some change, and a 72' (rosewood) neck but I just can't get used to the maple at all.
I love the rosewood though...I have to put the 69' up on the block to find a new home but I am definitely keeping the 72'...she is awesome and feles better for me personally
Probably my favorite guitar. Really amazingly versitile. My fave is probably the MIM Esquire I have.
How much you selling it for??
