    I recently sold off my Les Paul because I didn’t really click with it. So, I picked up this American Original 60s Tele. Neck feels great in hand, pups sound amazing.

    Beautiful tele! It's amazing the incredible sounds you can get out such a basic design. No LP means you'll have to renew your gym membership though. :twisted:

    I'm not a fan of Telecasters with sunburst finishes or with binding . . . but that one breaks the rules. It's a beauty.

    Gosh those are great!

    I have one as my workhorse, added nothing but a bridge cover

    Be careful if you’re a hard player, the finish is soft and thin

    Same here. Bursts never appealed to me until I saw this one. The binding really helps, I think.

    All my other Teles are nitro-finished, so I know how fragile the finish can be. Also, that new guitar smell… ❤️

    It did come with an ashtray cover, but I keep those off generally. Also came with a Fender 75th neckplate. I might pop that on at some point.

    Honestly, Fiesta Red and Lake Placid Blue with binding look spectacular. I could have easily gone that route.
