    2012 Candy Cola American Standard in never played condition...I've owned plenty of Tele's but never a standard and this is a lovely little thang ...

    the such a deal was the price ...couple months ago I found a 2011 Gibson Les Paul 60s Tribute on our local C/L for 6 bills which is a great deal for that guitar so I got it

    ....fast forward I see the Standard being advertised ...seller is looking for an LP and wants to do a trade for one ...we meet up and budda bing...he's happy and I'm ecstatic...


    I love C/L.... DSCF3737.JPG DSCF3726.JPG DSCF3735.JPG DSCF3733.JPG /L

    Gorgeous color, sad belly cut. I do like it, though.

    Great work! That's beautiful! I love the red tele with the maple board. And in my opinion, that's a better guitar than the Gibson 60's Tribute LP. Those Gibsons aren't bad, but it's hard to beat a standard tele!

    Nice!
    I have a very similar guitar. Candy Cola 2011 American Standard with rosewood though. I prefer maple on a Fender, but when I picked it up at the store, I couldn't believe how good it was.
    Every time I take it out of the case, I can't believe how good it is. I keep it stock. It didn't need a thing.

    I had to have the output jack replaced recently. It was rusted. That's not happened to my other guitars. I've sweat more while playing this guitar than any other. That in itself is testimony to how great a guitar it is.

    Never thought I'd go for a red metallic guitar, but I find myself staring and staring at it. It's beautiful on a Telecaster.

    WOW that is gorgeous!! Candy apple red and a white pick guard is a winning combo! actually one of my favorite color combos, but ironically I don't have any guitars in metallic red lol
