    by the way : what I like in the 60s models is the Tele Top Hat Switch ... I don't like the normal switch, the top hat is OK for fast pickup change.

    You are correct Sir!

    I had both together for about one year, and the only difference I could feel in the neck was that the 50's neck was slightly deeper at the first frets with a hint of "V". Above the 5th fret there was practically no difference ...

    OMG, how much do I love this Tele' (and that's coming from a bassist). I only own one other guitar. A fender Roadhouse strat (which is really nice), but my Classic 60's screams at me to play her.

    500K Pots

    Degsycaster - How would you describe the change when you switched to 500K pots? I find myself wanting to turn the volume pot up another quarter turn on my 60's Classic only to find I'm at the end of the pots sweep. Don't have this issue on my other tele. Would a 500K volume pot fix this? Thanks!
