So a week or two (skip if you just want to see pics) ago I made a thread saying I was getting Les Paul. So today I went to Guitar Center and tried out a few of them. I wasn't impressed, I must say. I've played a few before, and I can't really say I was thrilled before either. So I continued the search for my dream guitar, in the process playing a PRS custom 24 (clearance), some American Ibanez, a funky looking Gibson, but none of them really got me going. So finally, I found it. A Fender, of course. I've always had a soft spot for Fenders. And as I played the first note on that Vintage '52 Hot Rod Tele, I knew it was the one. I present to you, pics.

Nice! HNGD!

What American Ibanez were you playing? Was it a neckthru?

thanks!
and i can't quite say...i know it had mother of pearl binding around the neck, and i believe a darker brown burst finish...doesn't really help too much i know.

Hmm, could have been an American Master (incredible guitars) but I dont recall them ever having MOP/pearloid binding.

nice - how does the mini-humbucker in the neck sound?
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

i'm curious, is it a one piece body? some are, some aren't.

great guitar either way, i doubt any difference between them would be audible.

I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.
