    I liked the way it sounded, the neck pickup was so sweet. The only thing I didn't like was the big fat neck on it. I kind of miss it but I plan on getting another one. What's you thoughts on building one from parts? It seems like a lot of fun and I could get a nice thin neck made of rosewood (which would be awesome).

    Anyone else play a tele from 83'? How do you feel about it?

    I've got an 83 strat- my first good guitar. It has a thin neck from back to front. They are seen as cost cutting and will never be of much value I think

    I wanted to buy an 83 strat, the 62' reissue but then I read that it's not actually to spec. I had a 62 reissue from the late 90's (I think) but I ended up selling it to fund some other gear.

    I have one. Vintage bridge, to replace the six saddle one, re-spray, original pickups and tuners. Sounds great, and easy to play, with reputedly the flattest board Fender ever sold. Top loader, heavy as an anvil.

    My 83 tele has a blade thin neck and my fav neck pickup.... and someone played the crap out of it before I got it...

    certainly no closet queen... the old tweed case it came in still smells like every bar it has played in...:lol:
