Keen - disposable, but comfortable and functional. 2 years is good enough for me.
I've gone through Timberlands, Wolverines, Carhartts, Merrells, North Face and Tony Lamas.
I'm too chicken to spring for the big bucks on boots or shoes. Like guitars, I want to try them before I buy them and...
It surprises me when people think everyone should be “like them”
I generally get 6, wish I could get 7 or 8. I’m kinda hoping as I get older I’ll ’need’ less, but I’m guessing it’s more like you can get less.
My final comment - In the morning I feel like I can get comfortable in any position but...
We used to drive to the Jersey shore in our other guitar player’s grandfather’s mid 70s Fleetwood.
Parked in someone’s driveway it could sleep 3 comfortably, although the trunk while comfortable could get buggy.
I’m not a builder, but have been playing a Tele for 40+ years. I have a 6 saddle on my old ‘78 Tele, but if I had to get another one, I’d go with a 3 way compensated. I think the stamped plate has a bit of positive tonal impact.

For me, I gotta have some kind of extra layer. For now it’s flannel shirts or hoodies or fleece, depending on the laundry and where I’ve got to be.
I gotta wear a hat too these days as my hair seems to have slipped downwards since I hit 60...
I can see the logic of it.
It’s a lot of money.
Your heirs don’t have to fight over what “Dad would have wanted” when the advertisers come calling.
The decisions and questions and wheeling/dealing about your music are no longer your problem. Let SONY figure it out!
Your income is much more...
I'd say it depends on what you want the amp to do.
Yeah you'd have to service a SF Fender, but it'll be a workhorse. But no effects loop, and not the best Master Volume (if there is a MV at all)
It also depends on if you've got a solid Amp service shop nearby.
I'd still be happy enough with an...
I’ll second putting a single sized hotter HB into the ‘cheapo’.
Buy something used, lil 59, chopper, cavalier lion… it doesn’t take much to make a Tele bridge get rockin’.
The hb will overcome any noise from lack of shielding…
