Finally, I got it !
A '62 American Reissue Telecaster. The guitar, which I needed for a years!
This guitar with history for me. Little, but history.
You know, that last three weeks I spent in my trip in the US and all that time I looked for my new guitar. I have been in dozens of stories - big and small, tried a hundreds of telecaster - cheap and expensive, new and used. But I didn't find a proper for me guitar for three weeks. I exactly knew, which sound I want , and no one of those guitar is not that I need. I despaired.
I last day of our trip we just went to GuitarCenter, which was close to our hotel (it ws in Chicago suburbs) for some little things such strings, picks etc. As always, the wall with used guitars was boring and nothing interesting was there. When I walked around a shop and choose strings, my wife say, that she FOUND exactly my guitar. I didn't believe - I saw all used guitars there. But she found, that that GC has another one room with used guitars - there were not cheap instruments. Finnaly, I saw my new baby there ! That was exactly my guitar ! SO DAMN EXPENSIVE for used telecaster guitar , but it was mine :)
I got it!
I made out a guitar in two parts right there and place it in my cabin luggage.
So, picture time !

That is SWEET! I think the only thing tougher than NOT knowing what you like is knowing EXACTLY what you like and finding that guitar or whatever can be a real challenge. But, when you find it... Oh yeah!

Congratulations! :)

Congrats, a TELE will change your life. I bought two from GC in 2011= 2000 AM.STD Lt Ash+2002 Ron Wood ESP. I love them. Very unforgiving,but tons of tone. Log-out and destroy that sucker.

Dude.. That looks like One. Sweet. Guitar.

Play the crap out of it. That's what it was made for.

Awesome score, sapounov!

Sap, I'm still looking for my "perfect" Telecaster. May you live long and prosper with Mr. Leo Fender's greatest achievement!
