    So the first of my two new babies has arrived. I upgrade my guitars every couple years, this year I wanted to get what I consider the best Fender can provide. I had my eyes on last years NAMM paisley thinlines with P 90's (love P90's), this poped up, I also then found my 2nd whilst browsing (damm the inter web).
    So Mr Wilson had delivered a Fabulous example of a beautiful telecaster, plays beautifully, the neck is fantastic, a really dark rosewood and sounds amazing.
    I'm thrilled - a real beauty imop. IMG_3540.jpg IMG_3541.jpg

    Is lovely!
    I have not seen many so unique that catches my eye like this.
    Really cool. Congrats!
    Send more pics?
    And does this have a specific name? (Is it gold on the outside of the paisley?)

    Yup its gold under paisley, I'll take some more pictures, I don't think the finish has a particular name, I've seen a few but a real looker.
    I've been player it all afternoon - love P90's

    Awesome, congrats. I also have the bug for a Tele JR (w/ P90s), any chance you can post a raw sound sample of this guitar?

    No doubt I am seeing wrong , but that bridge appears to be slightly askew .

    Just to clarify, does this mean that every couple of years you move on all your old guitars and get some new ones, or do you have some "keepers" that you hold onto?

    I use to trade loads each time upgrading if I can afford it. Now I have all the tele's I could want, my only lust now a Firebird, so that will be next.
    My wife has one in one out rule, initially this was great but after a few years you get to the point when you can trade up much because you love what you have.

    Beautiful Tele. If I had that, I would probably never trade.
