Hi there guys, I almost bought a American special Telecaster Vintage Blonde today on the spur of the moment. It played nice, but the fact it only came with a gig bag put me off. The music shop guy was saying this one is a step up from a standard Tele. It just didn't sound right to me, it was cheaper than I have seen other Tele's, and the fact it did not come with a hard case brand new was a worry. I thought best thing to do was hold off and do some research before I buy. I have looked online and can't really see how the models go from lowest to highest quality. But to be fair, my eyes could be painted on. This is the one I almost bought. https://www.rockshop.co.nz/shop/gui...-american-special-tele-mn-vintage-blonde.html Would this Tele be a better option? Would this pro be a big upgrade from the special? I would rather spend the extra money now rather than kick myself later. https://www.rockshop.co.nz/shop/gui...caster-mn-butterscotch-blonde-w-case-usa.html Could anyone enlighten me on this please?
