I have 50s road Worn from 2017 and I love it. I put Glendale brass saddles on mine.
I really like the fat neck, but I don't like the heel truss rod location.
Amazon's ever shifting algorithmic pricing will drive you nuts.
It's a lot easier on a Tele than a Strat... All you have to do is remove the pickguard to get access (the Strat is much more of a pain to do)...
Congrats! Saddles are an easy swap; I prefer brass personally. Roadworns are for me always a steal- custom shop features without the huge price tag! Lacquer and worn neck feel so good to play on. GC's limited purple RW Tele has especially caught my eye recently... got a MIK lacquer Tele that fills this space in my life though (see profile). Happy playing.
These are really great guitars. Once I got used to the tall frets, and did a few tweaks, like fret end dressing, Fralin PU's and Callahan SS compensated saddles, it's my main stage guitar. My vintage guitars stay home these days.
But I scored big! $329 off regular prices
Really loving the tones. Still not sure about the relicing
After playing it and setting up the new brass saddles, I really dig this telecaster. The pickups sound great to me. Maybe it's thre nitro, but this tele has some real soul to it. I don't really care for the relic finish but I can live with it.
Well i broke down and bought one of the blonde ones. Can't wait till it gets here because I sold my baja for it! Hope I don't regret it!
Yeah, the regular retail prices are so high, you've got to be terribly allergic to what Amazon is doing not to want to give this a try.
I like the way these feel and sound, when plugged in. Personally I think the visual impact of this guitar is Subdued and it is a blank canvas for guys who play a lot to put their own stamp and imprimatur on it. And I'm excited to see people take a "raw materials" guitar like this and make it completely their own in just a few years (in some cases, just a couple seasons!)
I've seen guitars that are way more sexy than this as shipped, but in the end, the guitars are for playing and there's nothing quite like a guitar that's primarily a Statement, once well used, about a certain guitar player's love of actually making music and entertaining people.
I love the roadworn series. I wish they made a 60's version like the strats have.. but the 50's are awesome! love the necks as well!
love the 7.25 radius and 6105 frets. perfect combo for me..
I had the 60's roadworn strat, then I sold it to my wife's cousin because I'm leaving the country to go to Melbourne, and it's still with him right now, and I've been asking him if he can sell it back to me, and he havent gotten back to me yet, that was 2 years ago..
There's a blond Tele locally for $500. Maybe I should check it out.
Hmmm I like the Road Worn Series.
I kinda wish they kept them with white pick guards
The black guards may be more accurate but look murky to me.
As far at the price goes you got one heck of a deal.
