    hi all- just found this forum for tele users and discussions, thought I’d show you all my new baby. Didn’t think I’d be coming home with one over a Les Paul or even a strat, but it just felt incredible. Please let me know your thoughts/ amps and pedals you love with your teles!

    Nice! Now you need a Srat and a Les Paul.

    Yeah, make sure the L.P. is used and in good condition though. The last few years I've tried them they've been really far off in the quality stakes.

    That's a really good Tele you got there. What year is it?

    As far as amps and pedals go, it's hard to beat just about any good Fender amp, and Tube Screamer pedal. If you're a rock guy, Teles are wonderful with Marshall type amps as well.

    Hi! Thanks! It is a 2009. I bought it used, but it genuinely is in excellent condition (still had that Weird CE sticker thing on the neck plate lol). I currently have an orange micro terror and will be getting a small tube Marshall combo soon(im a rock guy)

    Just a suggestion, check out the Fender Bassbreaker 15 combo as well. I have one, and it is a pretty killer rock amp.

    I love the sound d of mine through a Vox AC4C1 10", a Polara reverb and a Naga Viper. The Naga gives you a little more eq control.

    Awesome. I’ve got one just like, although with a rosewood fingerboard. These are great guitars, enjoy it!

    Congratulations, my recent purchase is also the same color and maple neck. I just love mine. I have given my other guitars a break so I can get a higher comfort level of playing it and learning how to get all the different tones out of it.
