    I wonder if the WRHB on these will be available for sale seperatly for those of us who have the “older” reissue’s of these guitars. I also wonder how much different they are likely to be.

    So is this supposed to be better than what

  4. wademco says:

    Sorry, fat fingers! As I was saying, are these vintage guitars really better, or is it just marketing? Can mmost players tell the difference when listening to one or the other? Seems like newer technology would make a difference….i guess new old is better

    I own one in fact I just purchased it 2 weeks ago. Got a great deal because they are now discontinued.
    Honestly, best Tele I’ve ever owned except for a AVRI 52 hotrod that I reluctantly sold/traded about a year ago. But for the price it is the best. Paid $1000+tax.
