I've had a Tele before, but it was a bastard with HBs, etc. maybe even a... get ready to cringe.... Floyd Rose! (I won't go into it ) Just got my Baja and I can't stop playing it! I've never felt this way about a guitar before! I have a Strat, a Gretsch, a LP, etc., and while I pick them up often to play, it's always been because of the desire to play music, while this is something different, there's a connection with the guitar itself. I've heard you guys talk about that special bond but I don't think I've felt it before in my 16 years of playing. I tried some SRV & Hendrix, neck p/u can do it no problem, tried some Rockabilly in the middle position, bam!, no problem.. even Van Halen with the bridge p/u engaged and even pinched harmonics ring out effortlessly! Where have you been all my life Tele?! Maybe it's just NGD syndrome, but I'm truly amazed. I feel like this is most likely going to be my go to guitar from now on. Ok, I just read over that and I sound stupid, but whatever, I'm giddy, ok, I've put it down for too long, back at it!
