    I saved for 2 years to find something special. This tele seems to fit the bill.

    63 spec body with slab board neck. Twisted tele pickups sounds good to me. A little scooped but way more clear than my 90’s American Standard.

    Neck width is a little more narrow than my other tele but not necessarily a bad thing.

    It’s called a 60’s tele.

    Color is shoreline gold. Basically a silver with a little yellow/brown in it.

    Congrats! Shoreline gold is one of the nicest colours, and I like the journeyman relic: comfortably worn in but not over the top.

    Very nice, but it's a little dinged up. :(

    Tell you what, because I'm a nice guy, I'll give you $200 for it, and you can get yourself a nice squier with a good paint job. :D

    Seriously, Very cool Tele. HNGD:)
