Hello folks, After many years off from playing, when I started again earlier this year, another decision I made was to finally scratch that tele itch. I've generally stuck to the budget end of electric guitars, and was pretty close to pulling the trigger on the Squier CV 50s. but while they're awesome, I decided to take the plunge and get myself a higher end one a few weeks ago. After tons of hand wringing I went with an American Professional w/ rosewood fretboard in Crimson Red Transparent. I'm glad i went with it, it's an amazing guitar and I never want to put it down. This forum has been a great resource as a lurker and I can't wait to dig further in.
