    The Nocaster has a fuller and an almost 3 dimensional tone. Reminds me of the difference between a Martin D18 and a D18 golden era.

    Man... do ashtrays always get magnetized super fast or is the Nocaster just a beefy pickup?

    lol for sale and sold are two different universes. I bet 90% of what people try to sell gets researched here on tdpri and the buyer is brought down to earth, but I guess time will tell.

    Mine aren't for sale, but I think $500 is a fair price.

    A standard MIM Tele is $599, and the FSR's with the reversed control plate are $699, so $500 for a Triple Tele seems reasonable to me, especially NOS or as new.

    Yes, these were a great deal for $380. $500 is a fair price, but then I'd only buy one.

    My TT isn't for sale either and I absolutely have no plans on parting with it, but I will say that imo $500 is a fair price for one, assuming it's not uber heavy. Very well made, great fretwork, top quality pickups, wring and pots, which is something most of us do first to a standard MIM tele.

    If they were Fiesta Red or Blonde and Greg Koch endorsed them they'd go for a grand.

    Doing my part to keep this thread on top forever...

    I've had mine for a couple weeks now, and I've definitely got a bad output jack. Anyone else have any issues with any of the electronics?

    I love this guitar, I mean really, really enjoy this guitar, but it's always a bummer to have something like that go bad on you out the gate. It's just not something worth hassling Fender or Adorama with when it's so simple to swap out myself, but obviously I'd rather not have to dig into a guitar I'm otherwise very content with.

    Well, if nothing else it helps me get my money's worth on my StewMAX subscription.

    I'm starting to get some serious saddle buzzing going on. Weather has been a bit chilly and wet lately. A set up is definitely in order. I'm not looking forward to setting the neck relief with the truss adjustment at the heel! I guess Ill experiment to find an iteration of loosen neck, adjust neck, tighten neck to get this done. Sounds like chore!

    Make sure you are tuned at pitch. Mine acclimated from needing attention to not needing it in 48 hours. I expected as much and just let it sit for a bit before hitting it right away. It turned opaque with condensation it was so cold when is landed. The guitar that is. And the relative humidity in my house is about 40% or so controlled and monitored. I was wondering if the condensation was going to form into frozen droplets at first, not really. ;)

    Fortunately the neck bolts on mine have been well tapped and coated in bees' wax, so adjusting the neck has been simple.

    If you want to adjust the truss rod without changing the strings, use a clamp type capo like a Kyser, loosen the strings, clamp 'em with the Kyser near the nut to keep the strings from popping out of the tuning machines... When removing the neck, back off each bolt a little at a time, to keep the torque even.

    When you put the neck back on, do the same thing in reverse, i.e., tighten each neck bolt a little at a time, as you would when tightening a wheel on a car.

    These are good guitars, I'm very happy with mine. The three bridge pickups thing is a little bit strange and is probably why they didn't sell better, but everything else about these guitars is solid.

    I'll see ya'll over in the Triple Tee Club. :cool:
