I started out a Les Paul type of guitar player. In the mid 1980's, I started to gravitate towards stratocasters and I've been a strat player ever since. However, sometime in the mid to late 1980's I bought a Japanese telecaster. It was a really nice one and one of a few guitars that I've owned with no issues. I knew it was a good guitar, there was nothing wrong with it. For some reason that to this very day I can't explain I never was able to bond with that guitar. About 25 years later I bought an American Standard telecaster and I absolutely love it. I mainly play it for jazz and for me it has a beautiful tone. That Japanese Telecaster is 1 guitar I wish I had never sold. If you've had a similar experience I'd love to hear about that. All comments are welcome.
