    I AM a bit disappointed the hardware isn't gold.

    No mockery here...I have a lot of the same "issues" with modern teles, but I'd have a hard time walking away from that beauty if I had the money and the price was right. That double-bound body is GORGEOUS! What a looker! Don't tell my other teles... ;)

    I have had similar experiences with guitars I would have sworn are not my cup of tea.

    Nice looking guitar if you like that sort of thing. Where's the BSB finish, black guard and three saddle bridge?! The world is just going to hell in a hand basket! ;):p:D

    Seriously though, nice guitar!

    Haha dude bought a high end Tele ... um

    Nah just enjoy it. Each fender has someone who it was made for. This is yours. Be proud. And play it like you stole it.

    That is a very pretty top. I like the plain-ness of my 52 and my FSR Ash Tele, while appreciating the cherry burst of my Elite. I think that an Elite w/a cherry burst on a nice maple top like yours would be awesome. I hope you enjoy it!

    Nice one! I could play that. PRS tiger tops and Les Paul bursts make me nervous- that right there wouldn’t

    Enjoy, wear it out.
