On impulse (that should be my middle name) I bought a '18 Road Worn 50s Tele from GC for a good price ($575). Id read somewhere that they were good guitars and lighter than my current American Special Tele, which is an issue because I have a wrecked shoulder, so my 8 lb AS is a bit too heavy. I picked up the RW tele today and a few observations: -Sounds surprisingly good. Maybe the PO installed aftermarket pups, but it sounds great. -The neck feels REALLY good. Id read somewhere that its a 7.25 neck, but it feels more like a 9.5 to me. -Im undecided on the appearance. Whilst I like the lacquer finish, I generally dont like the idea of a relic'd guitars. It seems like a lie/poser thing to do that instead of actually wearing it yourself (this is JUST MY OPINION, no offense to anyone). But, I kinda love this thing. It has vintage vibe in spades. The relic'ing is actually not too bad. It really looks and feels like my old beat up 1990s MIJ Thinline. Hell, its almost as light! This one comes in at 7.2 lbs. Im not thrilled with the beat up looking headstock, though. it doesn't look real to me, it just looks like my 6yr old smacked it with a piece of rebar a bunch of times. But overall, I have a feeling Im gonna grow to love it. It just feels great. Plus, I love sunburst finishes. Anyone else have one of these? Id love to hear from you.
