Greetings! I'm new here, popping over from the Strat-Talk forum. 62 years old, and have been playing since age 11 (though I feel as if I still suck!). I have been GASing bad for a squier vintage modified tele special in butterscotch. Problem is (maybe it's really not one!) that I've never owned a tele in my 62 years. Mainly a Strat player with the occasional Les Paul. You Tube clips show great sounds from this model, and damn if it doesn't just seem a gorgeous color. Speaking of which - anyone with a butterscotch - is it a solid color, or semi-translucent so that the grain shows? Anyway - I know no one will do me a favor and talk me out of this since I have absolutely NO NEED for yet another guitar!!!...LOL...so just seeking opinions if you're happy with this tele. For only $299.00 I figure you can't go too wrong, especially with a return policy. Thanks...and hope to be a frequent visitor and contributor here!
