I wish. A 58 tele I sold in 1969 before I shipped off to Vietnam.
Yup, wanted a Tele real bad about 20 years ago so I bought this MIJ thinline, don't think I will ever sell it, its too much fun to play.
Man, that is a song and a history lesson all wrapped up in two sentences.
Yes. I bought it brand new in 1977.
I don't recall selling it, it's not here, it's been gone over 30 years. Not sure who got that one.
I still don’t have one, technically. Just “T style” guitars.
I do! But not my second or third...my fourth I still do as well and I’m always looking for a 5th! Lol!
1986 mij rosewood tele
Yes, and it’s my only Telecaster! (2000 MIM Standard)
Yes, I still have my first (and only) Telecaster. In 2001-2, I had developed something of an obsession with owning a Fender Telecaster, which I had little interest before that. I bought it on eBay in 2003 for $300 from it's original owner in NYC. It's a 2002 MIM standard Tele that, after a few years of fairly intense use, had an Allparts replacement neck installed, as well as vintage slotted tuners and Seymour-Duncan pickups, then a red tort pickguard.
To this day, and even being literally surrounded by about twenty-five other guitars (most with my name on the headstock) I play this Telecaster more, and more often, than any other instrument I own. It just works.
Still got mine. First one and likely the only one. I have too many other things I need to buy.
Don't hold back the photo of you playing it with your teeth .
But, it’s my only Tele and I haven’t really had it all that long. MIJ “Classic 60’s,” Tele, which came standard with US made “Vintage '62 Custom Single-Coil Pickups,” whatever that means.
Here ‘tis, hanging with a mate on the couch in my study.
I do. I was late to adopt Teles. I had a Strat for about 12 or 13 years before getting my first Tele. It was a 2003 U.S. market Aerodyne, which I bought brand new in 2004.
I did already have an Esquire, though. It is a Dec., ‘02 Custom Shop ‘50s white guard. It’s a one off customer spec’d build in Desert Sand – not from a factory edition. I still have it too, and it’s still what I call my “Number 1.” (See my avatar, though it has a black guard in that pic.)
Like many folk here, I wish I did. I brought a new Tele from Fender Soundhouse in London, 1975. The neck warped beyond repair and I sold it in 76.
Yes, but I've only had it for a year and a half although it feels like a lot longer
Nope. My first one was a black mexi tele with maple fretboard I bought in 1999. Learned a lot on that guitar, still regret selling it
Yes. I intend to keep it for life.
Yes, a squier standard tele from 1998, when I changed from playing bass due to a hand injury, it is a beautiful purple sparkle finish and is much nodded, but still gets played
Yep. ‘97 CIJ Thinline that I’ve had for 22 years. Mostly stock except for maintenance work and brass saddles... Replaced the nut... Rewired the control harness when the original started failing. The original switch tip went walkabout years ago and it has some replacement knobs (still have originals) as one got scuffed. I sometimes dream of more major mods but can’t bring myself to do it!
Yep - Fenix TL10 copy bought new 27 years ago. It's been modified some - only the body, neck, strap buttons and some screws are left from the original. Lots of other teles (and other guitars) have come and gone but this one is the one I reach for still.
