Well you can tell from my avatar which of these guitars I went for in the end! I did really love a transparent crimson Pro I had the pleasure of trying out, and figured I’d have to save my pennies for a few years to get one, as aside from a few random ones I’d seen being sold for a steal there wasn’t much variation on price. BUT ... I asked myself which tele up to £1500 I ‘d most want, and it was the 64 in LPB. I’d seen a few come up and knew it would be a case of being in the right place at the right time - with the cash available! As it happened I found one and the owner was open to a straight swap with my other guitar. What are the chances? Soo playable and comfortable... probably the last things I was interested in as a kid. This tele plays, looks and sounds killer. It’s solid on all fronts and I can really see myself getting old(er) with it. Called it Guthrie, after I saw Mr. Trapp playing one online.
