Perhaps somewhat of a silly question--given that I recently got and have liked the Vintera, and that responses to the question will be highly subjective--but thanks for humoring me... Is the price difference between the Vintera 50's Modified Tele BSB ($1049 currently) and the AO 50's Tele ($1500-$1850) worth the differences in your experience and opinion? The differences are: neck profile (U-shape, AO; soft V-shape, Vintera) finish (Nitro body, gloss neck on AO; poly body, satin neck on Vintera) pickups ('52 pure vintage, AO; custom shop "twisted" and vintage, Vintera) electronics (3-way switching, AO; 4-way switch and S1 phase button, Vintera) Manufacture (USA, AO; MIM, Vintera) Ostensibly, the materials, craftsmanship, and quality would be better on the AO as I've heard it described as similar to custom shop guitars, but I'm sure "not quite". And of course the differences are not insignificant to feel, playability, sound, and look (vibe), but really by how much? I'd love to hear your insights if you've played both, or upgraded from Vintera to AO, and your thoughts on the $500-$800 price difference. Thanks!
