This is my first telecaster and also the first time I purchased a guitar online. It turned out really good and I’m very happy about it. First thoughts after playing was I was surprised at how hot it sounded compared to my strat. When I play my strat on my tweed amp it sometimes seems that the breakup can be all or nothing. This tele barks and the bridge pickup is mean ! I also heard a lot about how people never like the sound of the tele neck pickup but I think it sounds nice. This is the first guitar I have bought in like eight years but it already feels like home to me. I have wanted a reissue tele for many years now and learned a lot about the differences in models since I joined this form, I’m happy I did.
