Hi Folks, I'll try to keep this short.. I am looking to upgrade from a CV50 BSB. It's such a great guitar but the neck is a little slim and as good as it sounds, it does just feel a little cheap.. I like the 3 saddle bridge and string through body. I am away for work and about an hours drive from my hotel is a Fender Japan 1985 TL52-75 (I think it might actually be a TL52-70 due to the manufacture year, but the neck pocket is hard to read). To test it out, I have to hire a car, drive for an hour and although it seems like its in great shape, I need to be prepared to walk away if it isn't right. The alternative to this is to walk into a store when I get home and pickup a new Baja 50s tele. I am pretty well read in the physical differences and tone wise I have some idea of what to expect.. but I would love some input from you all about what you would choose and why. My heart says get the Japan fender - 32 years young, has stories to tell from its age and (from what I read) is likely to be an excellent quality instrument. My head says, get the new Baja, enjoy the 4th position, enjoy all the modern refinements with the classic looks and sounds. FYI - I am in Australia so prices are just ridiculous compared to anywhere else in the world. Thats why I'm not looking at 52 reissues AVRI, CS etc. MIJ - $1000 (plus travel costs and getting the damned thing home) New Baja - $1450 What say you TDPRI!?
