Still a newbie in this space, I was checking out the variety of Telecasters at a local shop this weekend and found much to like about this model. The setup and playability was superior, at least to my hands, than the Vintera 50s and 60s models. The intonation was spot on up the neck, which I can't say about other Teles I've played. Some folks complain about the neck being too thin, but I disagree. I think it's a fine profile and actually quite accommodating to close-voiced, long left hand stretches that are part of the jazz repertoire. Add to that, the guitar sounds good. What's wrong with this picture?
