    Hello TDPRI,

    I just got my first Tele a few months ago and recently finished changing out all the hardware to make it my own.

    What a great guitar, I love owning a classic. Even if it's a new model.

    Electric guitars are amazing. Change out a few parts and you have a true one of a kind.

    Looking forward to learning more about our Telecasters from everyone on the forum.

    Greetings from three hours south of you - better known as the "Conch Republic" or the lower Florida Keys.

    Beautiful guitar. I've got an American Standard Telecaster and have long thought about supplementing my collection with a Thin-line Telecaster to cover that tonal range that the Thin-line will cover and the solid body just can't.

    Did you buy yours in the Miami/Ft.Lauderdale area? I've occasionally seen Thin-lines at Guitar Center in Kendall and at Sam Ash in Dolphin mall, but my experience has been that they are a little harder to find than your typical solid body Telecaster.

    Hello Rick330man,

    I got it from Sam Ash in north west Miami, not the mall. 836 west of the Golden Glades interchange.

    They had one on the wall that was nice but I really wanted a brand new guitar. Just seemed more fun that way :) I had them order it and it came in week or two.

    I've changed everything since then but the tuners, neck and body. The tuners will go sooner or later but only because they don't match the rest of the chrome. They work fine.

    Thanks.
    Yes, Guitar Fetish. They were well priced, look and sound great.

    Do you mean the one off of 826? The Sam Ash off 836 is at the Dolphin Mall right off the intersection with the Florida turnpike.

    How do you like the HBs in there?

    That's 836, further south west of the one I'm talking about. It's not in Broward though. I've included a map of both locations.

    I really like the place, very helpful. I had problems during the ordering process and they took care of things just fine.
