I'm sure that VictorNoel's decision to off-load the Tele was strictly financial. Who wouldn't want both? My wife might not always agee, but I think it is impossible to own TOO MANY guitars! Variety is the spice..................... I firmly believe that G&L is Leo's fullfilment of his own personal dream to give us players the finest instument he could without the compromise of business-influenced goals. He never tried to push G&L on us. He put forth his final ideas and then left it to us to decide. I have read that it was Leo's desire that G&L remain (in effect) a Custom Shop.................... Some say Leo Fender is the inventor of modern music. I personally thank him for what has been the most spiritually-rewarding aspect of my life, being my music. Yes, all of his creations should be celebrated equally. I really did like my Baja Tele. It was well-built & rock solid, big fan of the neck, & the pickups were quite nice. I just thought I'd be more into the switching system than I was. Instead of doing some mods, even something simple, I traded it to someone who was looking for a very nice Baja. Like you guys, I love all things Fender. Especially ASATs/Teles.
