    Hi, Kyle, 28 M from UK. Hello to everyone!

    Been playing 12 years now. Traditionally a Les Paul guy however my dad was recently getting rid of a £60 Squier Tele he's had for years. He decided to give it to me as he thought it was a terrible guitar.

    I've since fitted new electronics, tuners, bridge and dressed the frets and give it a setup. My father now hates me because the thing sounds and plays great :)

    I'm hooked, I bought a Baja Tele last week too and now my Les Paul's are virtually dormant.

    That's my story :)

    If you bought a Baja, maybe return the Squier to dad? Father and son tele players.

    Welcome. I'm not surprised you found the Tele more fun to play. That happens a lot.
