    My excellent wife really surprised me on Christmas morning. Under our tree (or more correctly beside it) was a long box wrapped with paper. The size of the box screamed GUITAR. Not daring to assume what it may be, although it had been no secret I would like to have a BP Tele, I eagerly unwrapped it only to find the guitar I had been hoping for. I know a new guitar almost always elicits praise but I must say I am impressed with this guitar. It is very light and the neck reminds me of the Clapton Signature neck. It is very comfortable in the hand and sounds really great. This is my first relic guitar and I would not normally be attracted to one but in this case the proof is in the pudding. I am very happy with it and with my wife, too.

    I sat down with a BP telecaster at guitar center the other day. I was also surprised by how light it was. The neck felt really chunky in my hand, definitely thicker than an American standard. I liked it. Good luck with it, I hope it serves you well.

    I'll pipe in again with the suggestion that on the next holiday (likely Valentines Day) that wonderful woman should experience something very, VERY special! A good wife is far more valuable than "Boatloads" of even the finest guitars!
    Just My $.02 & Likely Worth Even Less!

    What are you talking about?

    That he should expect another guitar on Valentine's Day with a boat profile neck?

    Makes sense to me.

    Congrats on both - make sure ya take some time to listen to your bride, I'm sure she'll let slip something that she'd enjoy that will give you a chance to make HER feel as grateful as you do now. Oh yeah - pics or it didn't happen.

    Find the right woman, and hold on tight. That's what I did 33 years ago. :D
