    I predict there will eventually be more than 500 posts in this thread: more than one for each DC Tele!

    Oh yeah. I'd hit that with my parish priest watching.

    Good timing on this thread coming back. I just purchased one on Monday. It's like guitar equivalent of a rescue dog. It's got some self esteem issues but learns to bond well with its new owner.

    Just say hell yeah! Awesome body style...only way to make it better would be to slap it all on a Jazzmaster body and call it a Jazzcaster or Telemaster!

    Yay! We have those too and I have one inbound!

    Ok, I guess. No hate. Maybe asymmetrical horns would be better. Or would it just be a strat then? <shrug>
    It took me 40 years to get hot for a tele. Don't expect me to warm up to this anytime soon.

    The pickguard gives it the illusion of asymmetry, but in a bad way. If the top horn were bigger and the pickguard was more like a Strat's it would look better. It'd look like a Strat with Tele hardware.

    Just not as cool as a regular tele. Still kinda cool.

    Hate is such a strong word, but I think it applies here.
    I'm a card carryin' single cutaway guy.
    Leave my Teles, Pauls, and Chets alone.
    One cutaway is enough.
    Glad I could clear that up.

    Hate this abomination, and Bloomfield's too...just wrong.

    abomination: N.

    1. Extreme hatred; detestation.

    2. The object of detestation, a common signification in scripture.

    The way of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord. Prov.xv.

    3. Hence, defilement, pollution, in a physical sense, or evil doctrines and practices, which are moral defilements, idols and idolatry, are called abominations. The Jews were an abomination to the Egyptians; and the sacred animals of the Egyptians were an abomination to the Jews. The Roman army is called the abomination of desolation. Mat. 24:13. In short, whatever is an object of extreme hatred, is called an abomination.
