    Hi everyone,

    My name is Loïc and I'm from France. I just sold my Gibson Nighthawk Standard to a sunburst American standard Tele... And I liked it. The Tele sounds amazing I had a Squier Tele a year from now and it was some crappy thing sounding thin and noisy, Now with the A Tele it's different it sounds so good so dynamic better than my nighthawk. And the nighthawk was a good one already. I don't regret the buy. I just Regret the flame top. And she's pristine

    I still have my Gibson Nighthawk, wouldn't trade it for the world. But that's a gorgeous tele, and I know you'll love that thing too.

    And welcome to the forum!

    Awesome Tele! I'm sure you will love it. I have a 2005 American standard and it is great.

    That's a tough call. Sophie's choice and whatnot. At least you picked up a real looker and player with the tele.

    It's been one month and two days... She rocks the place on a daily basis now. No more tears for the nighthawk...she's gone and it's well.

    Now you've done it. If you're like me now you'll trade all your other guitars for Fenders too.
