Hey guys. I thought I would like to check out your Telecaster forum. My very first good electric guitar was a '77 blond Tele. I had it back in the late '70s and parted with it in 1981. I did get to see it again recently. Unfortunately, the finish had been removed and replaced with a simple clear coat. But it was good to see it was still in the hands of the person I had sold it to all those years ago and despite the altered finish it was still in very good shape.
Now I'm looking around for a new (to me) tele to add to the family.

Belated thanks! I have found what appears to be an excellent Tele to adopt. I am sacrificing one guitar in this endeavor; the MIM Strat has to go. I have attempted to make it right with my conscience though by doing a good thing. So, the old black Strat is going to a NYC school. I think that is much less trouble than selling the old girl and only getting a fraction of its worth.

No worries, you are getting rid of a common guitar and replacing it with a beautiful form of primitive art.

Here is the newly arrived bundle of joy.

Ah! Welcome and congratulations! Things sometimes happen pretty fast, don't they? You go from thinking to looking to adopting in a fast order! :smile:

Thanks again! I have been playing it all I can since I got it home. It has helped ease my Rickenbackeritis a little ( though I'm afraid that is a chronic condition for which there is no real cure.)
It is a 60th Anniversary model BTW. It plays smoother than I remember my 1976 model playing, though it has been 30 years since I played that one.
Just now I have been jamming to "Bodhisattva" by Steely Dan.
