AV64 fantastic guitar
Because they look so good, I bought a Cherry Sunburst Loaded American Deluxe body a few years ago, which I built into a really nice partscaster. Having tried one or two in store recently the compound neck feels even nicer than the soft vee I fitted, so I think I would have to go for the Deluxe.
Always wanted a 52 reissue, but I hate the 7.5 radius. So I like the new American Pro.
Don't forget the 52HR has the 9.5 radius.
Fender Classic Player Baja Telecaster - the original '50s one. Just my dream guitar, and at the right price, too!
I like the new Elites.
I can't afford one, but they look and sound great.
Dead quiet too!
A 1980 Tokai TE80
It made my Baja, a mid '80s Hohner The Prinze, and (says it all ) even a 1966 Fender Telecaster, redundant.
I did the same with my MIM FSR BSB and it was my number one for a long time. Love it! So I'm probably on the Baja bus too.
I'd really love a good lightweight, slightly relic'd, vintage spec Tele. Those BSB road worns look great.
52RI's early 90's or 80's era, and the 62RI's, MIJ or USA.
I was so impressed with the thoughts about the Nashville Deluxe that I put a lowball offer on one on Reverb.
I like the one's that have strings on them, so you can play!
All of them. Any well-built Tele that's set up to your taste and playing style is a joy.
50's Baja. Great pickups, wonderful neck, 4-way switch, 9.5" radius, vintage tuners, all at just the right price point. Sure, there are better Teles out there, but this model is my bang for the buck strike point; to get any better requires a lot more cash for very small increments of improvement.
The Fender Magnificent 7 Select Light Ash Telecaster does it for me. I feel it's a modern interpretation of the AV '58. Pups are '58s, white see through finish on Ash, and a birds eye Maple neck.
The modern appointments push it over the top tho. The 9.5 -14 radius, wider 22 fret finger board, and tummy cut really push all my buttons. All the vintage tone of an AV '58 with all the modern bells and whistles.
What's not to like?
Ok, the bling took a second to get used to but it's straight up vintage tone.
My favorite is the discontinued 3 pickup Tele Plus. I have a crimsonburst and blueburst one. The only change I made to either of them was putting a 3 ply black pickguard on the crimsonburst one.
If I have to go with one that is currently in production, I've been loving this one. Can't go wrong with an American Standard either.
I loved the Highway One series!
The finish, necks, and frets suit me perfectly!
This is my first Tele.
I own 9 (!!?!) Highway One Strats....that's how much I adored the series!
American Ash Telecaster AKA 8502
MIJ '62 RI... FTW!
Lovepedal SNS Board by ByronMGSanford, on Flickr
After about 6 months out of rotation, I pulled mine out the other night and fell in love with it all over again. This, a Lovepedal Tchula, and the Top Boost channel of a Vox amp = pure rock and roll heaven!
Beautiful guitar. I'm a sucker for a Tele with binding! Is there a list somewhere of all the Tele models that had at least top binding?
Also, I have a Bigsby on my American Deluxe and am using a Vibramate spoiler with it. Highly recommend it. Makes changing strings a breeze.
