so I like my PRS CE24 immensely-everything about it. this electric stuff is annoyingly addictive and I think probably worse than acoustic addiction-really. so I've been looking around for "just one more" with a little different tone character, so I get exposed to mult brands and such, you know what I mean, no way should you limit yourself and such. always had an eye for a thinline tele. I just like the F hole cutout, and the idea of a "kinda semi-hollow" tone addition. been looking around at a lot of the fenders with this characteristic, but I haven't been drawn into the tone of any other than the JA P90. I also like light weight-like to keep an electric around 7lbs or under. Most of the slimline tele's, even the more expensive models, were into the 8lb range. just about pulled the plug on a demo JA P90 in the red, 6lb 10oz, until I found this. I was caught by the color in an ad listing, pulled it up and took a listen and immediately said, "yes, that's what I like to hear" (yes, I like the humbucker tone). So I checked at SW and found the Mocha and one was 7lb 6oz. Its on hold till next week when my contact there comes back to work. Got a nice deal on it as well. There's a really sweet looking 3 color burst in the same model, and same weight. and I looked at the vintage blonde for a long long while also-I like that one a lot. But, this mocha caught my eye right off and I kept coming back to it. Here's the video, some interesting stuff in this model. When the pedals are used it seemed a little off to my ears, almost like the guy had the tone dialed back a lot. I thought it sounded sweet with a bottleneck and i'll use it with one also. I like the darkness these pickups have. Looking to pick up one of the Tonemaster Deluxe Reverbs later on also. I think this will work well with that. I like the specs on this a lot. The neck profile shape, the FB radius, locking tuners, appears to have some neat pickups, all the bells and whistles one could hope for I think.
