Ahhh you're the troll from the other thread that wouldn't stop replying. Now just aiming to insult me on the other thread.Of course they do, and I never claimed otherwise. Hey, perhaps buy a brain and read my comment again?
I never insulted you, it's the other way around. Now you're just backpedaling like in the other thread.A Tele will be more durable than a Lester, so you're just talking garbage there. And as for the rest, I'll just ignore your insults and let you spew all the BS you can muster, because hey, who cares? So toodle-oo for now and try to relax mate - it's just the Internet and thus nothing important, even if you seem to believe otherwise yerself
I just sold my 2004 Standard Tele ( bought new), to get a lighter, Thinline.I own a MIM standard tele and I am planning on taking it with me everyday to school. The reason for this is I have a 6 hour commute per day involving the train, metro and bus. I also have a free time at school before, between and after classes. As a result I can get in a lot of playing time on the train and at school.
My tele fits nicely into my locker but will it be able to take the beating it being brought around everyday? I have a very thick padded soft case (made by precision)
What do you guys think? is it a bad idea?
I really dont like babying my gear and this guitar has found a place in my heart, I always want to be playing it!
So you seriously mean that the Gibson LP/SG/ES-whatever headstock is as sturdy as on a Fender maple neck?...
Either way, yeah, a Fender made Telecaster isn't going to be any more resilient to damage than my Les Paul. Sorry for being truthful. Again, I understand that we're on a Tele forum but just like the videos of Strats and SG's being thrown around, they were just as durable.
My pine Squier Esquire could be used as an anchor.I suppose you could......although I don't recommend it. In a pinch, you could probably use a telecaster as a boat oar. Can't guarantee it will play well afterwards and it will probably need to be repaired and/or parts replaced.
Les Pauls and SGs headstocks are very fragile, you only need it fall once to find yourself in possession of an expensive bit of broken tree with Gibson written on it.While this thread is twelve years old, I thought I'd resurrect it from a different perspective...
While I'd love to believe that the Telecaster has some kind of magical superpower behind it to make it almost invincible compared to other guitars (especially since it's my favorite type of guitar), the reality is that it's just a that - a guitar, made of the same types of wood we see in other types of guitar. And Ash/Alder - which is what the majority of Telecasters are made up of, is common wood.
So the "realistic" answer is that it breaks just as easy as any other well-known guitar whether that's a Les Paul, Strat, SG, etc. Take care of your gear
