I have 23 instruments and the last thing I needed was another guitar but my Son (God bless his little heart) gave me a $400!!!!! gift card to G.C. I was going to use it to pay off the guitar I bought my girlfriend...then I saw this Nashville Tele. Now I already have a Tele that I love so I wasn't in the market for another one but this was the first ash Nashville Tele I ever picked up that was light. Always loved the idea of them but never found the right one. This is the one. Love the Texas specials and the thin neck set up to my specs and plays like friggin butta. Thanks Son!!! I asked the guy for the $100 off coupon even though I had thrown it away and he gave it to me.
