Well spotted Dave. I set her up a few days ago and she plays very well. She won't be in the same league as yours but then again I got her for 200.00 from an idiot I used to know.

Someone on HC just posted this clip of their tele doing teh b4r00talz. I think it sounds great http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_songInfo.cfm?bandID=630564&songID=6831147

The twang kinda works for that kinda thing somehow, makes it sound even dirtier. Needless to say, my gas for one has returned.

Thought I'd got it right  ;)

Bargain price, and I'm sure it's a cracker  :)

It doesn't look "old" to me Philly. I really need another tele now. Wish I had never started this stupid thread!
I think I hate being indecisive.

Well yeah, "old" shiny Baja as opposed to "new" battered Relic  :wink: .  I didn't know how else to describe it.

It's a bit too shiny though, isn't it... ?  :?

The only Tele I've got is this which I use for slide. One of these was my first guitar.......anything as luxurious as a Squier would have been heaven to me!
Since the pic was taken I've fitted a P90 in the bridge.

Well, here in Brazil if you do something bad (or kill someone :D) we use to say that he/she will pull your feet while you're sleeping for the rest of your life :lol:

I HATE TELE'S!

And for one reason only, principal.

They were meant to be cheap guitars, but they still cost the same as a damn strat!

Oh it irritates me so...

No Adam, not another Tele hater. Mine was cheap-200.(though like I said, it was bought from a complete idiot so that perhaps doesn't count). I know what you mean though - Teles used to be cheaper than Strats but there is no difference now between equivalent models but even so, I still love em.It is not the guitars fault that the marketing guys have made things this way.

Yeah, but you're going back nearly 60 years, and they were meant to be "cheap" in relation to the archtop, hollow-body jazz guitars which were around at the time.

They weren't meant to  be cheap compared with other solidbody guitars... oh wait, there were no other solidbody guitars then. :roll:

Unless you were around in 1950, I think maybe it's time to stop holding that grudge. :wink:
