    Here is a 1963 Tele I got on a trade. I had been trying to trade my ES330 VOS for weeks and was about to give up. I decided to post on Craigslist of all places. One day later I got a great offer and the deal went perfectly. Sounds great. So light and resonant. Here is the new Tele.

    Man, that's a good-looker. Congrats! That's always the best, when both parties are happy with the deal.

    Nice! Tell us more about it and the Gibson you traded. I am a fan of both.
