Don't get me wrong. I have found a lot of useful information related to the American Standard, MIM, and many other Fender products that bare the name Telecaster upon their peghead. However, the newest Telecaster I own was manufactured in 1973. As you can imagine, I have a harder time relating to those who post threads about the Telecasters of today as I think those same folks have a harder time relating to me, posting something about one of my old Telecasters form the 60s. Thank you TDPRI for creating this Vintage Tele Discussion Forum.
