    Found this mint used Plasma Red Burst American Elite Tele in Guitar Center today. It looked sad and lonely so I decided to give it a home.

    Yes! The neck is amazing. Compound radius is the bomb. Even the finish on it, so smooth, hard to put down.

    Exactly my experience too. I played that neck the very first time and fell in love. Beautifully put together and the finish is silky.

    Nice! HNGD

    Do those come with staggered or straight in-line tuning posts?

    Congrats; that's a nice one!

    American Elites came with even-height tuning posts, but they are all the "short post" from the staggered-height set.

    They're all short-post locking tuners.

    Always appreciate this look. Been tempted by this one more than once. Good on you for making it yours. Also, good to know about the neck. Enjoy every minute when playing.
