    I’m new to the board and just wanted to share some pics of my new Tele. I’ve been looking for this one for over a year and finally found it. It plays and sounds so good that I️ don’t want to put it down. I’ve been a Strat player primarily up and to this point, but the more I️ play this Tele I️ am beginning to understand how rewarding they can be to play.

    That is drop down gorgeous. The white top hat really tops it off.

    Congrats man. That stunning. We picked one up for my son yesterday as your probably well aware. I hope you are enjoying it as much as he is his.

    I don’t know about you but I’m a big fan of the FCS logo inside the cases of FCS guitars. Sadly my Dale Wilson built 52’s Tweed Case doesn’t have the logo. My sons 63’ Journeyman beige tolex like yours does. I gotta say, I feel a tiny bit ripped off, no disappointed would be a more appropriate word. Otherwise the case is also beautifully made as one would expect.

    Thank you very much! I️ hope your son enjoys his new Tele!
    Also, my case doesn’t have the logo. This Tele was made in 2015. I️ have a Strat that was made in 2017 and it has the logo and brown tolex. I️ think they may have started the logo inside the brown tolex cases in 2016 or 2017?

    Hey did you buy your sons Tele from The Rock Inn in Perth? That’s where I️ bought mine. I’m in the United States but I️ bought online from them. They are an awesome guitar store! Friendly and great to deal with. Super dats shopping too, I️ got the guitar in 3 days from Australia!

    Yup, both of our latest FCS guitars and quite a few others including my pre CBS 63’ Strat have been purchased from Andrew and the crew at The Rock Inn, Western Australia.

    They’ve really taken care of me over the years and I try to buy from them whenever possible.
