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.
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.
