    Went tele hunting this past weekend, had a few requirements:
    1. Sounds good
    2. Nice neck - not too thin
    3. Solid color
    4. Under 7.5lbs
    Funny thing is, I've never been a huge Jimmy Page or Led Zepplin fan, this guitar just ticked all the boxes. It feels great, it plays great, the neck is a nice handful, and it's right at 7lbs. The case candy and mirrors are pretty cool I guess, but I really just enjoy this particular guitar more and more as I play it.

    Also - fist tele not including a road worn false start from a few weeks back.

    Great, great guitar. See my avatar pic. Love mine. Not a fan of signature models. But the guitar was so great I grabbed it anyway.

    Are the bridge saddles smooth or threaded on those?

    6" modern insulated walls, 72deg/45%RH year round in the room. Every now and then in the winter if it gets really cold, it's a hair flat for a min or two when I first start playing it. At least the piano's on an interior wall.. and to be fair, the majority of my guitars hang on walls in the basement.

    You sound wealthy. Is it as nice as I imagine it must be?

    Here’s what I assume is the latest Page Telecaster, from the what’s new section of Sweetwater. I was just looking at it this morning before I read this thread.

    Tell more the neck shape.
    Like a Baja?
    Rounder than a 52 RI?

    Not having got up close I was under the impression the neck was shallower?

    Feels like a transition between a 50s and 60s neck to me.

    Little wider than a 50s.

    Little shallower.

    C rather than U.

    Yes, the guitar is very nice. But it may or may not be as nice as you’ve imagined.

    I really like the look of this model, I had written them off when first seeing pics with the mirrors attached but seeing specs and pics like yours changed my mind. Congrats.

    Lol. It’s about $2,200 more than I can afford to spend on a guitar. Must be nice to have that sort of disposable cash, if not more.

    Most of my disposable cash is in USD, so that is the sort I'm most familiar with. Now as for $2,200 - if we're talking yen, then's it's really only about $20.29USD - which could still be considered a lot of disposable cash to some folks.

    See it's all a matter of perspective - and I posted this thread hoping you would share yours when it came it 'disposable cash'. You've shared it, I've acknowledged it.
