Classic Lacquer ticks all the boxes.
Road Worn Tele.Look no further.
Simonsp, that's a lovely whiteguard!
The Classic Series 50's laquer or the poly finish are fabulous guitars
They are, IMO what the Tele was meant to be from the get go.
You absolutely CANNOT go wrong with a 50's Classic Tele. I have both an older 52 Reissue and a Classic 50's and playing them both one after the other you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference between them both in sound and feel if you were blindfolded. Dare I say it, but my Classic 50's with the OV's in it may even be a little more punchy and has just a little more twanginess to it. I also added the regular old, run-of-the-mill Fender brass saddles (no need to waste your money on fancy, boo-tique saddles, unless you like throwing away your money!) The Classic 50's in white blonde get's my vote without a doubt. You can't lose with that guitar. And if you REALLY want to go all out and are a stickler for vintage appointments down to the smallest details, you can replace the screws on the guitar with flathead screws! (i didn't do this on mine)
Boy, that pic would look great with a Twin
Just curious, is the neck on the Classic 50s tinted lacquer?
Funny you should say that. I just acquired a '72 Twin the other day and it's in the shop right now getting a once over by a tech.
Here's my NGD pic of my MIM 50's lacquer. I am loving this thing more and more.
Thanks for the advice everyone I purchased a 50's road worn bsb tele on Wednesday, great guitar very pleased with it and I have created a ngd post in this section
Glad you found what you wanted! They're great guitars.
Thanks wiretap yes it's great, so pleased with it and the aging is nice without being too over the top or fake looking. Looks very natural
I love them I have an 09 blonde and 15 blonde love both necks and very very light with the ash body
Love that white pickgaurd
I love the white pickguard too, but now I have a black Microcoil in the guitar, it doesn't look as good, so the torty red is on it now.
Same guitar, still floats my boat.
Great that you found one you like ..cheers
Well, I said it because I recalled your recent thread looking at one that members generally said "you can do better". I knew you were looking, but I missed the part where you got one already! Sweet!
That's a real beauty.
What are the frets like on this model? The really tiny older style AV frets? They look a bit larger in your pic, maybe even 6105 big? The tiny frets are my favorite, but are harder and harder to find on anything new.
They are described in the specs as "vintage" style and they are smaller than my squire 72 and older MIM - which I believe both have medium jumbos, according to specs.
That makes them 6230's as far as I can tell. I agree that this particular picture makes them look like they have a wider base. They play just fine, I actually like them and the 7.25" neck quite a bit.
