Not only my first Tele, but my first Fender. Likely a '98 American Deluxe, since I rescued it from a pawn shop in late December of that year. It's so versatile that it became my main workhorse. The five-way switch allows the typical pickup configurations of Bridge, Bridge and Middle, Middle, Middle and Neck, and Neck. A mini-toggle switch between the volume and tone pots puts the Bridge and Neck pickups together with the 5-way in the Neck position and gives me all three pickups when the 5-way is in the Middle and Neck position. I'm celebrating fifty years of bending wire this year and this thing has taken me to Europe, Africa and back in the 21 years I've had it.
