    I have two little amps, a Bassbreaker 007 combo and a VibroChamp XD.

    This guitar sounds amazing through the VCXD but muddy and dank through the Bassbreaker.

    I ordered the Pure Vintage 64 pickups before the guitar even arrived, thinking I wouldn't be happy with the ceramic pickups, and I will put them in.

    But the standard pickups through that little VibroChamp sound wonderful. No real reason to change them at all.

    I am digging this new Telecaster !

    Congrats!

    That was a strange time, as the economy slipped down and FMIC raised MSRPs at the same time. Like you, I got left short on a "fender friday" and I called up, somehow got connected with a higher up and got two absolutely sparkling fresh Jimmie Vaughans at a price I won't even repeat in 2019 because it would just make people angry at me. Those guitars were so newly minted, when I opened the boxes I could smell the air of the Pacific.

    Yep, you can only go with the pricing at the time. I could have bought a whole house for half price then too.

    I have a Mystic Blue Am STD Telecaster and a Deep Pearl Blue Carvin. I like blue guitars. I also have an Electric Blue DRRI with Alnico Blue speaker. I like to write with blue ink.

    Oh, they’re a performing act in Las Vegas that paints themselves all blue and do some weird things but it’s a really good show. ( because you seem to like blue..)
