    Thanks Mate! I have been giving guitar forums a bit of time off recently. There's only so many arguements about six saddles vs three that I can handle!

    Congrats again.

    Sometimes the search is a long one.

    In addition to some pics, how about the story on how and where you found your 40th...

    Congrats again. Great looking 40th and very glad your search has ended.

    Think I know where yours came from. So I'll take a shot at Sacramento?

    If so, I'm sure you had a very smooth deal.

    Enjoy it!!!!

    Is there anybody entertaining the thought of selling their 40th anniversary telecaster? I have been searching for one for over ten years , and I always seem to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. If you have one you want to sell please contact me at my email j.leech@comcast.net

    How about the necks?

    I've been coveting a 40th anniversary tele for a long time. At this point I still haven't played one. It sounds like this group has a lot of experience. My big question is about the neck?

    How would you all describe the thickness of the neck down around the 1st fret? Teles range a lot in this area, and the size of the neck goes a long way in defining the vibe of the guitar.

    Does anyone have some input on how the neck feels on these? compared to other teles, or actual measurements. Are we talking bigger than .86"?

    The neck on both 40th Teles I have owned has been thin and fast. They are not chunky by any means.

    thanks

    Thanks for the feedback on the neck. I was really hoping somebody would tell me it's in the upper .80's, but it sounds like it may be more on the slim side.

    That said, great nut and fret job go a long ways. I'm hoping they are not 'too skinny' compared to other teles.

    All feedback is much appreciated.

    yes

    Both of those caught my eye, each color has it's own charm.

    The sunburst one says it's 8.8 lbs, that's way up there and surprises me a bit.

    40th Anniversary Telecaster

    Hi everyone,

    I am new to the site. Does anyone have any leads on a 40th Anniversary or wish to sell theirs? I am serious about purchasing one and am willing to travel if necessary. Thank you for your time and let me know.

    Brian
