    I dig it! I played one like that when they came out.

    Couple questions..A, is the pickup fiber or plastic ( I couldn't tell..), B, does it have a baseplate?

    No sure of the answers to your questions and haven’t pulled the guard off yet. I’ll post when I do.

    HNGD, those are sweet guitars. I did a lot of comparing between the Vintera and Player teles and definitely thought the Vintera 50s was the best of the bunch - and somehow ended up with a Player strat. Go figure. I'd say you made a good trade here, though. The Vintera line as a whole has left nothing but good impressions on me, particularly the 50s lineup. Plus, they just look righteous. Enjoy it, man.

    Nice!! Congrats!

    I’m finding thick 50s style necks take some adjusting to as well, but I’m into it. More and more the more I play

    I also have the Vintera tele in fiesta red. Can anyone suggest where I can find the appropriate size shorter bridge barrel height adjustment screws? The outside screws on the low and high e strings protrude dangerously high, and I hesitate to grind them down.

    Otherwise, it’s a sweet guitar.
