Cut it out you guys, you're killing me!
Please don't forget my invite for your first annual Bound Tele Lovers sleep over play date.
Wooo! Holy smokes that is quite the pair!
I have a few, still want one of the 60s Squiers.
This one is basically a Tele-shaped Les Paul, Squier Master Series Chambered Tele
Jay Turser double-bound "Rosewood" body
And a Firefly FFTH
Never really thought much about binding or blue guitars, but after I saw a bound LPB tele, I wanted one.
Obviously I've not owned all the examples of them but my CV 60's Custom was a very well built guitar. I did buy it used only to harvest the body for a parts and I followed through with that plan. However, before I did I played it for a while. Not much to complain about for the price.
I still have the body which I put with a MIM Fender 60's neck I already had. I treat that body with as much respect as any American Fender body as I think it's as good as any.
I love bound Tele bodies. They make non-bound bodies look so plain.
I think I need one of these.
If I ever see one for sale, I'm bound to buy it.
I love them all, but, a bound body with a binding thickness that is perfectly maintained all the way around is a thing of beauty.
I had no idea mine, my first Tele, was bound. Nor did I know it had a compound radius neck, 4th. Gen Noiseless pickups, locking tuners.
All I knew was it was different, and better, than anything I’d ever played before.

Here's my Squier with binding. Sorry that you can't tell from the photo, but it's double-bound. The colour is Gold Bronze which I think was a L&M exclusive in Canada. It originally came with a tortoise shell pickguard but I swapped it out for the one in the photo.
Edit: I just noticed the one @rze99 posted earlier in the thread with much better pics. His is modded but mine is stock except for the changed pickguard. I agree with him that it's a gorgeous finish and colour does appear to change depending on the lighting. I also have a Strat in the same colour.
Hmm, I guess I should pile on the anti-bound tele thread
I can get along with either bound or unbound. But, here’s a thumbs up to @Allen Peterson for his Carter pedal guitar.
Ok, I’m in.
This thread has made wanna run out and buy a Squier Classic Vibe 60s Tele! When my bank account recovers from this damned virus induced recession that's gonna go on my my to-buy list for sure.
Wow! What kind of Tele is that?
I tend to prefer unbound, but to me a lot depends on the body color, and also the binding color. Just don't bind the neck!
