    I'm pretty new here. Just read a thread called "great looking tele" or the like.

    I never thought I'd be a "tele guy." Had a CS '67 in Shoreline Gold that I didn't bond with at all. Then had a Rice Custom (#39) that's a great guitar that I'd still own if I hadn't bought the guitar pictured below which is a bit more versatile than the Rice. Which gets me to the point of the thread, I don't think there's a tele out there that has a more appealing look. Let's see the tele you find "best looking."

    I think this one's pretty nice looking.

    Well, I *really* like the "traditionalist" look, too, but if asked for my opinion of the best looking Tele, it'd be...

    Technically not a Telecaster but one hell of a looker IMHO...

    It's a hard call...there are lots of really nice looking Teles out there.

    But certainly one of them is the 40th Anniversary Custom Shop Tele.

    You have been warned before, stop posting pics of that guitar, have you any idea what this does to me ? ;)
