I've enjoyed looking at all these Teles this evening and realized I don't think I've posted on this thread before. I have to admit that until 7 years ago I always thought of a Telecaster as a crude Strat prototype, which I guess it is in a way. But I never thought I'd care to own one until I got this 2013 CV50s Squire on the cheap. It surprised me. I soon realized a Telecaster had its own thing going on and started reaching for it more and more. I now have, and love, three.
