    Hey guys, first post here.

    A little back story, I started playing 2.5 years ago, purchased my first guitar which was a strat, and not a good one at all lol. After a few months, I had to upgrade my guitar, so I got a Squier CV tele. What a beauty guitar that was, but after 6 months, I really wanted to get myself a NICE strat, so I sold my CV tele (mistake) and got myself a fender player strat, which i love.. but man do I miss a Telecaster...

    Fast forward another year, I ended up saving up and buying my second guitar, a PRS SE, which was a beautiful guitar, but something about it just didn't click with me, and I've been just itching so badly to get my hands on a Telecaster again.

    Thankfully I checked my local marketplace at the right moment, and found a Fender Road Worn 50s tele for exactly the same price I could fetch for my PRS. So, out goes the PRS and in comes the absolutely amazing road worn tele!!

    The neck is what did it for me, its a beautiful feeling and playing neck, it just melts in my hand. This is my first 7.25 radius and it has been really nice to play. It was a little bit of an adjustment but so far its been so good!

    And the finish on this guitar is perfect. I love the minimal relic'ing, and the neck/fretboard wear is so nice.

    Dangit. I had a 2017 that I stupidly sold, I've been watching Reverb and other places but the words "no ash" have sent prices up on these a bit. The Butterscotch ones, that is. You could smell the nitro when you took it out of the gig bag and that neck felt like home to me. I'll find another one someday, until then my Vintera 50's is also a great guitar.

    Congrats on getting a fabulous guitar!

    Congrats. Hindsight is a b*€×% sometimes, reminding us of what we once had, then costing us more money than planned. I think we could yours as just being human:)
