    I came at my MiM Std from the other direction - it was my first budget Fender. I wanted something to gut and modify and got it shop damaged, cheaply.

    Ended up at the same place - my best Tele yet. And of course the best colour! 20180918_143844.jpg

    MIM telecasters are great guitars for the money, IMO. I bought mine 3 years ago as my first guitar, and it sounds just as good, if not better, than some of the more recent American line of telecasters that I have tried. enjoy! :)

    Lake Placid Blue is definitely one of my favourite colours. Looks like a fantastic Tele, I'd love to hear it in action!

    I have just acquired a 1995 MIM Strat Standard, and it is completely unmodified - yet it has so much mojo. Some of these MIM's really are fantastic guitars. Congrats.

    HNGD!

    Your first Tele? Wow, I remember when I got my first one. Just couldn't put stop playing it and looking at it. It was an arctic white Affinity and I was hooked! I ended up trading it in for my CAR MIM Tele, that I still own. But not for long. I'll be parting with it, next Friday when I'm picking up my new sonic blue Performer Tele.

    Anyway, enjoy your beautiful new Tele and I'm sure you'll be a Tele-addict like most of us here, in no time. Because once you go Tele, there's no way back!:)

    Yeah... I got an electric guitar when I was about 13 that my mom got at Montgomgey Wards or something, I can't recollect and have no photos. About a year later I traded it for a go-cart and that was the end of my guitar days until a couple of years ago when I got a Les Paul from my daughter and that lead me here.

    I love the Tele for it's personality and the Les Paul for its. Getting old and want to retire so I feel it's time to let the music come out of me that's been bottled up from 52 years of working, raising kids, paying bills and worrying without much time for "artistic expression". LOL

    I have a long way to go but starting to learn and hopefully in another year or two it will be listenable.

    TDPRI.COM is a great site because you can talk about all kinds of things here. It's not Notsy-ized to only pure Telecaster content. I especially enjoy the sections on Amps.

    Thanks to you all !!

    Lake Placid, Pelham, Surf Green, or Daphne make any Fender a knock-out

    LPB Teles look so nice. I had on old one that I sold and still regret it. When Fender announced the new Player Series I expected the prices of Standards to drop. Here, in the UK at least, prices for both new and used are staying quite high.
