    Picked this out after 1-2 months of trying out guitars.
    Started out wanting a strat and realizing that a Tele felt more at home to me. Specifically a thinline tele.
    The tone is sweet, on the bright side, and can get snarky on the bridge, which I wanted as I'm recently into funk.
    Think it's a keeper!

    I wish I was patient enough to do this! It's much more likely to be a keeper if you've compared it to many other guitars. I frequently buy online and hope for the best!

    I dunno, just read that with fenders the build may vary from piece to piece so was wary - I’m Glad I tried because what I initially wanted (strat) wasn’t what I got in the end. Really wanted to like a beautiful original 50s white strat , but the sound wasn’t for me. (I actually liked the sound of a vintera 50s more)
    I think if it’s a piece hanging in the shop you can get some additional discount after haggling as well!

    I am confused. This is a real 60's? What year? Or, is it a re-issue?
