    New to me and my first CS. If I could find someone rich to adopt me I would have more! IMG_5096.jpg IMG_5097.jpg IMG_5100.jpg IMG_5098.jpg IMG_5099.jpg

    Gorgeous!
    I’ve always wondered why more people don’t put the pearloid tuning buttons on their guitars—they look great...

    Very nice, I was looking at those as well, but something else grabbed my wallet.

    So after playing for a bit I have found the following. It's very difficult to put this thing down. The pups are a lot hotter than my other tele. So much so that it can get away from me. I have to be much better at muting the overtones. This guitar can go from purr to roar in a heartbeat. The neck has static in it. I have done some research- even called Fender- and found this to be an issue that is possibly caused by the finish. No one has a cure so I'll just have to play the finish off of the neck. The neck is a great big handful and I love it! It has a compound radius of 9.5 to 12. Very easy to play. The finish on the body looks ten times better than any poly finish I have owned. I really, really like this guitar and look forward to leaving my marks on it as I play,play,play. I found it's sister Strat but can't find anyone to buy it for me(any volunteers?). I'm just sure they would look great sitting in my music room together. It was a long time coming but it's been worth the wait. Very happy with my purchase.
