It would have to be the only Fender Tele I've got right now.
Can you give is any hint about what it is? That pink looks so cool!
Ja minulla on oma lehmä ojassa. That’s Finnish saying, literally ”I’ve got my own cow in the ditch”. It really means that I’ve got my own intrests at stake here.
It would have to be a workhorse I didn't need to worry about. MIM Player series, maple neck, burst or black.
Mods: Swap pickguard for tort, a 4-way switch, and reverse the control plate.
That's because I'm playing this inspiration...
I played a re-fin’d ‘51 Nocaster at a guitar show a few years back. There really wasn’t anything special about it (aside from it being a real Nocaster, and the $19.5K price tag), but it was just one of those guitars that fit my hands perfectly. The weight, the neck, the way it played....I still think about that guitar.
There's 2 Teles that I would be proud to own.
A Original 72 Thinline with original WRHB's or a Thinline Cabronita.
sure, that's a Shell Pink American Special from Chicago Music Exchange. they're the only ones who have the pink ones, though there's also apparently a Euro-only shell pink Baja. At least I hope it's Euro-only -- if it showed up here, I'd have to buy it, and then I'd have 3 pink Teles!
If you're saying it has to be Fender then I will also go with the 60s American Original in LPB. But if it doesnt have to be a Fender then it would be a Ron Kirn Tele with a humbucker at the neck. The latter will be my next guitar regardless.
I tend to like the standard stuff. Off the shelf, an American Original 60's would be fine. CAR, rosewood board. Oh, wait, I built one like that (except it has a 4 position switch)...just have to reach over and pick it up!
You can have my '64 AVRI in aged white when you pry it from my cold, dead hands!
Thanks for your answer! I thought it was some American version, having 8 pickguard screws. Nice looking, wouldn’t mind having one.
I had MIJ Pink Paisley but sold it. Kinda regret it, it had 7.25” radius, which I love. But as you said, there’s a batch of shell pink Bajas coming here, actually they already are in Central Europe, and one is coming to me (don’t tell anyone, it’s a secret) in a week or two. I’ve bought already a 5 hole white pickguard, that black hidious thing flies out the window first thing.
If I ever get bored with it, you’re number 1 on the queue!
Easy. Candy apple red American Professional.
...although, my Baja is close enough to keep GAS at bay!
the one i just put together. and i am not just saying this but it is the best sounding and playing tele ever!
Blackguard. (Broadcaster, NoCaster, Roadworn, etc.) Price point based on my financial health at any given moment. But, if just one, gimme the ol' cutting board with a maple board and a black guard.
Blue double bound Thinline with a white pearl pickguard and soapbar P90s.
Modified American Standard
I actually play what I should choose.... Change neck humbucker por Wide Range and normal Tele controls for C72 controls and is the same
For current production models, I love my shawbucker tele deluxes. Natural ash body maple neck suites me just fine.
The solid rosewood neck version is real nice too.
For non-production Teles I have one of my holy grail guitars coming this week — an all original tele deluxe I got off reverb. It’s a 75 — hopefully I didn’t over romanticize the 73 I used to own too much.
Here’s the shot off reverb
My '52 Hot Rod. With the Cavalier Fat Lion bridge pickup and the modern bridge I had put on it. (The ash tray gets in my way, and the stock bridge pickup was a bit ice-picky.) So perfectly made, such an incredible variety of sounds, and I LOVE that wrestle-ya-for-it neck.
A stock Tele, though?
Tough not to have chosen a good Esquire here, though. For purity, inviting playability, etc. Either one would be more than fine.
We are very lucky people!
