One of these. It turned out that me and my Epiphone Les Paul could never be friends and so I brought her back to the store where they offered me a coupon worth the money I paid for that guitar.

But I also decided to spend some of the money on a second hand guitar that had been calling my name.

Well so far it does what it says on the tin, it loves my Fender Amp and does everything you expect a tele to do.

Nice.

I've never played that particular model, but I've never played a 'Vintage' brand guitar I didn't like. Some of their more 'reliced' models look horrible though.

I do have one of their acoustics, still doing fine after 15 years.

I have got that one. A great guitar. I really like it and have had it for about three years.

I also have that guitar, sounds good. I'm not a huge fan of the neck. I did roll the edges on the fret board and that helped. Great all around guitar at a good price.

Cool!

What could you not get along with on the les Paul?

The uncomfortable body edges, which left chafing marks on my arm when I played it, the feel of that neck and most of all, the weight.

What I love about Fender guitars is that they feel smoothed over, No blunt edges, they melt into your body.

It drove me nuts, I went through so much trouble to get her but she and I just couldn't get along.

If it’s anything like my newer sg special I know what you mean about the neck

Mines a weird very flat D-shape that’s not great feeling

I bought a Squire CV from a guy who had upgraded the pups / pots / wiring and it's why I fell in love with the telecaster. Looks very similar to your guitar and I'm sure you'll love it. I have a deep love for LPs, but it's hard to justify an LP when I have a 335 that sounds very close with less sustain. They're also unbelievably heavy.

If you decide you miss the HB tone, look into a Tele Deluxe -- all the crisp brassy tone of a tele but with some serious growl.

Thanks for your recommendation but, I have other guitars that scratch the Humbucker itch.

Vintage guitars are great. I really like my Vintage SG, as perhaps the name hints toward.

I hope you have many happy hours together.
