    Man I looked far and wide for a '52 PV/AV and played a few but price and condition scared me off!

    Since NONE disappointed me tone wise I bought my first guitar online from Wildwood! Man am I already blown away!

    The neck is PERFECT! Never played a Telecaster with a better feeling one! Wildwood set up is also perfect!

    I love my '58 because it weighs in under 7lbs and this was 7.9 and thought that may bum me out BUT it feels lighter it's so perfectly balanced. I had to dig around for my hanging scale and it weighs ~ 1.25 lbs more but like I said feels lighter!

    Tone is great so far... of course I'll have to wait and see how it goes... but nothing to not love so far!

    Look for a '58 on the market pretty soon... maybe.... :D

    BTW that's lighting giving the top a two tone look.. it's perfectly finished as well and leans towards the darker color on the control plate side....

    I was looking at this and realized I probably had the mournful face of a man looking at a woman way out of his league! Beautiful Tele! :)

    Gee... looks kind of new and shiny for a '52. I guess we no longer distinguish between real and reissue. That's a really nice new guitar.
