    Been eying this one for awhile. When the price went up on these it curved my desire a bit. Now they dropped the price again so I jumped. Really fun guitar to play.

    Slick guitar. One of my favorites too.

    Happy NGD!

    I'm on the fence with the color, but the white pickguard is the best match for it IMO.

    Congrats! 3-saddle, Tex-Mex, all telecaster goodness.

    The purple is kinda growing on me, but I think there’s an ointment for that.

    Thanks for the nice replies. I'm in the setup stage right now, and everything is going smoothly. So far I am really glad I got it. I personally like the color. Certainly is a tad off the beaten path. Which I think is what I find most appealing.

    Yes, the color is fantastic. I was eyeing this for a long time as well, but I am not ready for the plunge quite yet. Black or white pickguards look amazing on it too. It is unique.

    Pete from Anderton's music plays one on the show quite a bit and it sounds incredible for sure.

    If you put up a video with the new tele, please post it! I have enjoyed your incredible playing in the past.

    Nice.

    If it wasn't for the factory fretboard "wear, "I'd likely already have one of these. Hoping to pick up a loaded body some day, and put on a black guard and an Allparts ebony boarded neck. Perhaps touch up the factory chips and clear coat it too.

    I really wish these didn’t have the 7.25 radius. The color is badass. The whole look is perfect. Cant deal with that radius.

    Great color. I tune into the Andersons Guitar you tube quirky guitar demo shows ever so often. Anyways one of the hosts Danish Pete, refinished his Tele in this exact color. I thought he made a good choice, and so did you :D

    I appreciate the kind words. I haven't posted in a long time. I need to though. My kids ate older, and it would be neat to include them as well. Thanks again my friend.

    Actually I like the vintage radius. I don't dislike a flatter radius either. I just prefer a little fight if you will...weird I know.

    I have almost bought this model at least 3 times. Each one I've tried sounded and played amazing.

    I had a copper one when those came out, loved it! My only complaint was that the nitro felt stickier than my other nitro finished guitars.
