    Got a good deal from Sweetwater on a demo. Got the Tele, Fender Pro case and a Road Worn strap for $800 shipped. I'm in Indiana so they covered my sales tax and tossed in a couple of sets of strings as well. Basically I got the case, strap, sales tax and strings free. Crappy screen shot. Should be here Tuesday. Fortunately I'm off work Tuesday and Wednesday.

    I've heard so many good things about them over the years, watched a million videos on youtube, etc. I like big necks and ash bodies. Couldn't pass up the deal. I'll admit butterscotch is about my least favorite color for a guitar but it just seems right on a Tele.

    ^^^ I really fell in love with the Soft V neck . My Strat just doesn't feel "right" anymore and I may sell it ?

    Look forward to hearing your impressions. My plan was to sell mine now that I got the 64. After A-B ing them I don't think I can let it go.

    Nice haul. You made out like a bandit.

    Put a Jimmie Vaughan neck on your strat and keep it forever.

    Check it out thoroughly.

    I recently bought the same model from Sweetwater; also a demo. When it arrived the S-1 switch did not seem to be working properly. Turned out it was actually a problem with the 4-way switch. They fixed it, but it was kind of a pain to ship back for something that should have been caught by the "55-point evaluation."
