    Hi everyone.My forst post here and NGD.
    Just got hold of Fender Baja Tele in white blonde.Never played Tele before.Still trying to figure out the wiring and tones.It has nice chunky neck.Its quiete heavy in comparison to my classic vibe strat.

    Also,anyone knows where to find fitting switch tip as its missing?I dont know which one would fit.

    Very nice, Bajas are great. They can be a bit heavy but the neck and pups are excellent. My bsb Baja is my fave guitar.

    Switch tips are cheap on ebay or amazon. Fancy options are available online too.

    Nice guitar! Almost looks like the 70th anniversary Broadcaster...

    Switch tips are easily found on amazon. Just get a bag of them. You'll need it over the years.

    Hey Doublechin,
    Welcome to the forum! That's a real nice tele you got for your first foray. The switch sits so close to the knob that I keep strat tips on both of my teles (they have 4-way switches). Enjoy that Baja!

    Very nice buy, congrats. Try one of your guiyat shops for the switch tip.

    I use the older round type of switch tip. I also crimp the metal to get a better grip between the metal and the plastic.

    I think that's begging for a white switch tip

    Welcome, and congratulations on such a great guitar!
    Freewheel the volume and tone controls through a large portion of their sweep to really get the "Tele thing".
    You're sittin' pretty!
