Hi everyone, this is my first post here, been stalking the forum for years but I've finally come through and intend to join the tele club. First and foremost, there is a few things to know about me as a guitar player: I usually only have one main instrument which I play exclusively for years, thus comitting to a new guitar is a big deal for me. First I played a Epi Les Paul Goldtop for about 10 years, then a 1974 Gibson J-45 for another 10 years and in the last 5 years primarily a Japanese made Ibanez RG. The latter is a fantastic instrument, but I find myself mostly in the single coil or split settings and the frets need replacing. With changing musical tastes (now mostly funk, fusion and Julian Lage type stuff) I find myself wanting to simplify. Teles have always intrigued me for that reason plus I love the aestetic (someting I can't say about the RG anymore...). I've scouted out two good used deals (for the italian used market that is) and one off-the-shelf guitar that I am very interested in. The first one is a 2008 60s MIM Telecaster for about 500€ with a few optical blemishes (don't care), the second a blonde American Special from 2016 for about 900€ and the last a brand new Godin Stadium HT for about 700€. Things I am worried about: that I am spoiled by the (perfectly crafted) RG and that the MIM 60s won't live up to my expectations in terms of built quality to make it as my main instrument for the next 5 years or so. Also, I like big frets (and I cannot lie), so I am worried about the skinnier frets and inconveniences like trussrod access etc. I will be able to try this one later this week. The American Special in terms of specs is much closer to what I like (frets, saddles, etc), but at the upper end of what I am willing to spend. Also prefer the color and can try it later this week too. The third one is the Godin Stadium HT, which seems like the best deal of the lot (couldn't care less about which name is on the headstock), and I actually like the minor changes they did to the tele recipe (belly cut, jack in the control plate, no scratchplate etc). Can't try it though and would have to order it / potentially send it back. Also currently only available in black which I don't love. Any experiences with any of these models? In particular the Godin Stadium HT? Or recomendations for other high quality teles at a good price like the Godin? Thanks everyone!!
