Hi, Thanks guys for the kind words, I can't get over how good this guitar feels and sounds. I have problems with my left hand and my other guitars can get a bit painful to play but the neck on this Tele is so easy to play. I had read about the quality of these Japanese made guitars but didn't expect them to be this good. As I am new to the Tele world I don't know much about the finer details, does anyone know what this finish is called? Is it 'blonde'? 'Olympic white'? I really have no idea Steve Ah, 'white blonde' you must have read my mind!
