Hello folks! This is my first post, but I've been lurking on here for a while... Long story short: I'm building my first Tele and I've gone for a classic Butterscotch SS with a relic look. I'm really satisfied with the result, but as I was putting all the parts together yesterday I noticed that I had forgotten to buy string ferrules. I couldn't wait to play the thing so I just put the strings in without them. The guitar feels and plays great, it has the twangy Tele tone which I was looking for. So... are there any downsides to leaving it as it is, i.e. without string ferrules? Except for the usual "the ball end might get stuck in the holes" thing. Thanks in advance for your opinions!
