HNGD man. That certainly is a beauty.
Happy first Tele day! Enjoy, it's a whole new world.
Nice one! Enjoy it!
If you like the stratty chime, a twisted tele neck pickup is about as close as you can get. Still doesn't have the unique tone signature of o strat neck pick up (nothing does), but the TT has got some soul
Ya done good...
Very nice, the benefits of a Tele kinda reveal themselves over time, enjoy.
Now, see if you can find a '64 AV to go with it.
It's a special day when you get your first tele. You become a bit wiser. A bit more twangy. Truly an occasion.
If you can score a 64 you will like wanna sell your strats
Congrats on a great, great telecaster!
It has been added into the queue
Wow thanks folks ! Now it’s time to twang !!!
Love it. Congrats.
What year is yours? It looks brand new.
In general it's always been by impression Strat pickups are weaker than Teles, hence some of their tonal differences. The Tele is much more aggressive to my ears.
Just an observation from recent threads here. It seems most former-strat, tele-convert guys like us simply love the tele bridge position sound. For me it is everything I was trying to get my strat bridge position to do for years. But at the same time we generally dislike the darkness of most tele neck pickups and tend to prefer the bright bite of a strat neck position.
In my experience, it is easier to get a Tele neck sounding close to a strat than it is to get a strat bridge sounding like a tele. The Dimarzio Twang King Tele neck pickup does an amazing job of this. Also I was surprised to play a Squier Affinity recently and find that the stock neck pickup on that was surprisingly stratty.
It is a 2013 , it has a few nicks around the jack and on the back but they don’t really bother me much. I can see on the pickgaurd where someone used to rest their fingers but other than that everything looks pretty good and it doesn’t seem like it was used very hard
Sight unseen/ordering online , you did good.
I’ve played boat anchor ones of those with tiny necks so if you love yours having never played it ?
And, that’s the way the necks should look in my opinion. The burnt orange ones that you very often see are nobody’s favorites…
You couldn't have done better. Congrats!
