I’ve used this forum for research for years and finally decided to join. Been a Tele man since 1991 and currently have four. I also have Rics (360, 620, and 4003) and an early ‘80s Hamer Special. I’ve also had Strats, Gibsons, and other guitars. Funny thing, as great as all of those guitars are/were, I keep coming back to the MIM Standard I’ve (mostly) had since 1991.
