Well..after all these years....I finally got myself a real geetar! Picked up a standard Tele last night. Stopped by GC..about the 5th one this week...didn't really find anything that struck a nerve...just happened to talk with one of the sales guys...told him I wanted something a little different..new or used..he grinned and said, "how 'bout this"? Apparently, on Wednesday, a bunch of kids came into the store to perform their tribute to POISON. One of the kids played this sunburst Tele, and when he went to put it back in the wall holders, he didn't look at what he was doing...BANG!! The neckstock slipped right thru the holder and the Tele went straight down onto the corner of the metal display rack. There's a chunk cracked at the bottom..right next to the strap lock. I think with a little work on my part, it will be barely noticeable. They took $130 off their regular price. Pick her up tomorrow morning. Can't wait to get her home! The only down side is, I'm trading in my really nice Godin SD to get the Tele.
