It’s a slowish Easter saturday. In Finland we call this day lankalauantai, which literally means thread saturday. Don’t ask me why. So, what could be a better day to create a new thread? One Tele, free choise, money is not an issue. What would it be, down to the colour? Limitations: - Made by Fender (Squier) - No CS or LE, only from current basic production lines. Artist models and MIJ are acceptable. A tough call. ATM none in the house, 1 still on it’s way (2 others that doesn’t qualify). It’s really hard to find one that would fulfill my preferences: 7.25” radius, vintage bridge, maple fretboard and nitro. 7.25” is a deal breaker, the others are in ”would be nice” category. That 7.25” narrow it down a lot! The collection which I made my pick from was Sweetwater, searched also Thomann. GC doesn’t allow us neanderthals to enter their website. And therefore, this would be it: Fender Road Worn ’50s Telecaster - Blonde w/ Maple Fingerboard https://www.sweetwater.com/store/de...-50s-telecaster-blonde-with-maple-fingerboard Oh man, I’d have to live with relicing. Kinda stupid, really. Take a perfectly nice guitar and sand it down, and in most cases I’ve seen, not so convincing. But okay, look at the teens nowadays. They’re ready to pay 100€ for brand new jeans that are already half worn off. Okay, back to business. If only they’d still make AV52, that would be a no brainer. Original’s doesn’t turn me on at all. Too bad they stopped vintage series. Both Teles and Strats were great!
