But I already removed the Hot Rails and put the original pickup back in.
I got a Tweed case too for my Desert Sand Baja. Matches well.
Just realized there was a Baja Owners club. Thought I better join. I posted last week to the regular forum.
Fantastic guitar. The pick ups are unlike the other teles I tried. They seem a little less twangy (which is good for what I like to play). The 4 way is very nice to get a fuller humbucker sound too.
I ordered it without playing it and am completely satisfied with its looks, playability and sounds. It's equal too the '52 RI I almost bought in workmanship and quality.
Hope I get as lucky as you did! My arrives tomorrow!!!!
Mine arrived and I love it. I was very lucky the nut was cut right and much better quality then the last few guitars I have bought.
Mine seems to be pretty average weight. I would say maybe 7-8 pounds.
The color is pretty close to a butterscotch blonde color and the grain doesn't show as much as some FSR I have seen but is very nice.
I didn't play this exact model before I purchased but it sound great. I can still tell it sounds and feels like Mexican Tele but I love that it has all the wonderful switching options. It sounds very similar too a FSR I played but has tons more custom features.
It doesn't have the tightness of the Fender American Deluxe but it is the closest I could get to it with out spending an additional 1000 dollars. Very impressed with the quality on these Classic Player Series guitars. Highly recommended.
I just changed my strings to 9's. Made it even better and easier to play. It brightend it up a bit too. Much easier bends. Still lovin' it.
My converted Baja
Here my blonde 2009 Baja (Esquire Mod) and my new Blues Junior III Crex
I've decided to sell her. GAS'n for a Custom Shop Strat and need the cash. If you're interested, I've listed her on ebay. Check out my auction. http://www.ebay.com/itm/110745054643?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
Baja Tele Question
Does anyone here know if the specs changed on the baja tele's form year to year. I am looking at a used 2006 baja model but it doesnt have the brass saddles or CS neckplate. It does however have a flamed neck that looks great. It made me think there were some changes and i also wondered if the pickups were different. Any help would be great, thanks in advance!
Not that I know of, mine's an '06 one and I have the CS designed neck plate and vintage bridge with brass saddles.
Sounds more like modifications to me, or perhaps it's even a different model altogether.
Got a good one yesterday. 7 lbs 3oz. Its my 3rd Baja. Should of never gotten rid of the other ones but this one is the lightest I have owned and found. I highly recommend anyone who is in the market for a new one to keep on eye on Sweetwater. You can see the weights and pics of the actual guitar, it helps insure you won't get a really heavy one.
I bought my Baja from Sweetwater, just under 7 lbs. The guitar needed a lot of setup work when I got it, but it plays and sounds great now.
Could be a dumb question, but is it normal for the volume to take a huge dip when you put in the S1 switch (to get the out-of-phase sound) or could this be some faulty electronics?
It's normal for out-of-phase positions on any guitar to have a volume dip. The pickups cancel each other out partly when they're out of phase, that's why.
The "CS Designed" neck plate was already gone on one of mine also and changing saddles is so easy. There's no formal change of specs in these Bajas. The selection of colors has varied and other markets got cool new colors when we got nothing but a price increase. Some necks have some figure and some don't.
Yeah mine is 06. It has the brass saddles and CS neckplate.
Surely if it isn't adhering to the published specs - it isn't technically a Baja?
Hers mine, got her Saturday. Had a few little problems with her but once she had a full setup and plugged her in, what a guitar!!
I meant to bring this up earlier but that is an awesome photo. Did you take it?
