The title says it all. My buddy has a guitar shop and gets a lot of vintage amps and SOMETIMES he gets some cool vintage guitars. He calls and says I've gotta get down to see his newest guitar purchase. I'm like the guy that played a 53 tele recently. My life remains unchanged. I would love to say it was a magical moment but it simply wasn't. It was all original but an old refin. It was also a custom color. Looked like Dakota red. The problem with that is I'd rather have a 5 way switch and this one had the 3 way and it wouldn't be wise to change that. The moral of the story: As much as I'd like to have a perfectly original vintage fender, I'd much rather have a reissue or a player grade vintage guitar. The guitar sounded great but I've had reissues that sounded better and played better too.
