    I just wanted to start a thread and show off my best looking, best playing AND best sounding tele. This guitar was my dream guitar for several years, and I was fortunate enough to find this one last year. It was last owned by a fellow TDPRI member, and I'm still grateful to this day that he offered it to me. Its a 1989 CS 40th anniversary telecaster. It has the sweetest neck pickup sound I've ever heard, and the bridge position has all the twang (and growl when distorted) that anyone could ever need. Love this tele! it's #115 of 300....

    Gorgeous! I have a Telebration maple top that is similar but I am sure that is the cat's meow, man!

    What would the value be for one of those today, I wonder?.. I remember reading about them, when they came out.. They are really beautiful.

    Beautiful Tele

    Lovely guitar! It's great when you find that one guitar that really puts a smile on your face. It seems to me that I'm always chasing guitars never really finding that special one that would put a stop to the search. My son often tells me that the reason I'm always buying is that I'm not satisfied with what I have.

    I read a quote from Clapton that says something like: we have to learn to desire what we already have rather than desiring what we don't have.

    The Red Telecaster on the left.

    The red Tele on the far left of the group. That's a nice guitar. Very attractive! I'll bet that it sounds great, too!
