Hi Folks, I was visiting a guitar center very recently and ran into a used American Telecaster Deluxe series Telecaster (vintage cherry finish). The serial number indicates it is 2004 and made in Corona. I plugged it ind played it and I was blown away by how brightly sweet the neck pickup was. Maybe the brightest (but not harsh) that I've ever heard. As I was checking it out I flipped it over and saw a brass colored rectangular block flush withthe body, and that's where the strings went in. Now this block a rectangle, not oval or anything like on a Twangcaster bridge. I did some searching on the net and found out very little except for this - Twangcasters have a bridget block like this - Alt de Fano uses Half "T" bridges that they manufacture themselves. I don't have pictures but all I can say is that this brass block was there and I honestly thought they did such a good job that I spent time researching to see if this was stock. I ended up calling back and putting the guitar on layaway and have to go pick it up Friday. I have to drive 1.5 hours to get to this place so I can't casually play it. Nor willl I really know what it sounds like until I get it home and play it with my band which will drag it out. What can you guys tell me about this guitar with such a bridge? I can't find any reviews a) does this affect the value of this Tele? It's selling for $1k used in excellent condition. Will I have trouble selling it some day if I need to or is this a desirable mod? b) is it worth it to get this upgrade? What does it really do? I've got a couple of mexican tele's now that I enjoy ('72 custom re-issue, and an FSR with mide boost mod). I enjoy both of these guitars but the one feature they lack is the rounded neck heel. I have such a rounded neck heel on my American Deluxe Strat and I absolutely love it. I want a tele with this feature and this is my chance since I rarely see this kind of Tele selling locally used. What do you guys think? Should I be waiting for one without this mod??
