Howdy, fellow telecaster players I want to state from the start that I have seen a couple of topics about this subject, but they weren't of so much help, so I thought that another thread won't harm anyone and may help others as well. I am looking to buy in the near future a new telecaster. So far I have secured my dream LP and my dream Strat, but as far as telecasters go, I only owned a Squier Affinity. After a pretty long search for best bang for the buck under 1000, I have reduced my options to two: Fender Telecaster Classic Player Baja and Fender Telecaster Deluxe Nashville. The difference in price is not huge(around 100$ more for the Baja) but I would like some certified opinions. Pros for Baja: brass saddles, CS pick ups, S1 pot and 4 way switch, chunkier neck, designed by CS. Pros for Deluxe Nashville: Noiseless pups, Fender Locking Tuners, Middle strat pickup, 22 frets The mid pup in Nashville Deluxe is not a must, I do not have a band at the moment(even though I will start college in the fall in a larger city, maybe I will get an opportunity of joining a band) so it is not about versatility as it is about genuine tele sound. Now there seems to be a lot of love for the Bajas and not so much for the Deluxe Nashville, why is that? For the owners of any of them, did you find necessary to replace anything on them?(Locking Tuners on Baja? Bridge/electronics on Nashville?) What would be your personal opinion over each of them(or at least the one you tried, anything helps)? I have read a fair amount of reviews, but would like to get some direct input from you. Thank you in advance! Your help is deeply appreciated.
