    Hi everybody.
    Last week, i had the chance to test an original 1962 telecaster in a very beautiful custom color (fiesta red).
    The guitar was in very good shape/condition, and has the vintage wiring (the neck position is bassy with no tone control).
    It was incredibly lightweight, the action was as low as a vintage radius can allow it, and it was easy to play.
    Unfortunatetly, i was playing through a good valves amp but i couldn't play it as loud as i wanted to get some good crunchs without blasting peoples around and i didn't have any TS to solve that problem.
    So at the 10 or 12 mm, you could only hear some "light natural crunch" sounds.

    Nice video. Love Fiesta red.

    Here's my inspired-by-early-60s-slabboard MJT in faded Fiesta red.

    Sorry... I was actually a long way down the road of a planning a faded Fiesta Red build and this just came up for sale on eBay (as it stands here) and I bought it immediately and without hesitation. It is a superb build by Grail Guitars (UK) with an MJT body. A great player and looker.
