    I generally only care for bound teles.

    This town is still big enough for the two of us! Are you telling us you bought this one?

    No, it's on the local FB for pretty much full new price. And I don't like bound Teles.

    Both of mine (Telecaster and self-built Tele-style) have a forearm bevel......kinda hard to do if it's bound. ;)

    That looks like a 60's version of the classic vibe - seems like it's a well built, very enjoyable guitar, heard nothing but good things about this model.

    What are you waiting for @Lonn ? You know the only real recommendation here is to Buy! Now! Do I have to subscribe to this thread to find out what you do? sheesh.

    That's purdy. I don't think I've ever seen a bound Squier Tele. But yeah, I'm not into bound Teles. I already want a more rounded edge on the front and back.

    That's a good-looking guitar. And I generally don't care for rosewood boards. :D

    I don't like Squiers, bursts, 60s necks, vintage tuners, or flat top knobs, but that is a real nice looking geetar.

    I pretty much require a telecaster to be sunburst and bound.

    For me, the ultimate bound look is with both the neck and body bound, oh, and block inlay.

    Okay, this is a G&L.

    Don't like bound either, but that binding looks minimal, I like it
