I've never played a 60's Baja, but I'll take cover before saying this...I never thought the 50's Baja was anything special. Don't get me wrong, it was a nice guitar, but just never blew my mind. I've gone through a bunch of Teles over the years; Baja, Several American Standards, 52AVRI, PV52, and my favorites have been the Classic 50's. Basically a poor man's 52AVRI. Darn near identical necks as the last inaction of 52AVRI before it was replaced with the PV52. My personal favorite neck. Aside fro the Classic 50's, I also have a Squier CVC with a Classic 50's neck on it.
