    First of all - hello to this wonderful community!
    I've been browsing this forum for a while, but I've just seen a thread that made me make my first post :)

    Here's the story - this summer I got my first Tele - a FSR Baja, and having been a 'Strat guy' -yes you're guessing it - I just fell in love with it!!
    So tonight I was searching for any old content on this particular edition, and this popped up - https://www.tdpri.com/threads/ngd-first-telecaster.1062104/ Yes, it's a thread of the previous owner of my Tele lol

    So, there you have it! I don't have better photos than the ones in that thread, so I will add just one from my environment lol

    Sorry for the long intro :) Thanks for having me, and I'm looking forward to hanging with all you fellow tele-lovers :) Cheers!

    Yea, the funny thing is - when I decided to look for a Tele, I really wanted a BSB with maple neck- to me it was/is THE Tele look... but this one was the first good one I stumbled upon (in my price range). At first glance I wasn't amazed by it's look.... but as I was looking through the closeup photos I liked it more and more.... aaaand very soon, the deal was sealed :D One day perhaps I'll GAS for a BSB one.... but now I'm more than happy with this one, all round :)

    Welcome! Beautiful combo man!!! I find that I have to give my Tele and Strat equal play time or they'll get jealous of each other, and mess with me when I play em ;) LOL!!! Kudos man!

    Haha yes; I can see that the previous owner has sorted it out :) And he chose it well, I must say; I'd never figure it wasn't original if I didn't see his post :)
