    I'm still looking for my first Tele. My main guitar is a '79 25th Anniversary Strat. I've been playing a lot of different models of Tele, and trying to keep it around $1K. I'm almost settled on a CIJ 62 Reissue I've played a few times in a local shop. Neck is beautiful.

    Welcome. Good luck in your search. When you find the one, we need to see pics.

    Welcome - there are some amazing teles out there, @nsallison - if this one doesn't come through, something else will.
    And then, we're gonna need some pics.
    Always pics

    Peace - Deeve

    Welcome! Seems to me that can get a lot of Tele for $1,000. But then again, I only buy used. So my scale might be a little off.

    Welcome! Yeah, a few of us Strat guys here, but I love me some Tele as well. I'm really pleased with my Mexi-Tele, don't automatically write them off as sub-standard.
