So... I've been gassing for a tele for a while now and I have a pretty nice offer on my hands. Trading my '90 MIA Squier Strat + $250 for a '08 MIM 50's Road Worn Tele in blonde.

We decided to trade for a few days to see how we like the guitars and so far I'm really liking the tele. I'm not so sure about the whole fake-relic look thing but it plays pretty good.

The question - are the RW 50s teles any good and how to they compare to a MIM Standard tele?

Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe
Gibson Les Paul Traditional
Seagull S6
Laney Lionheart L5T

and a bunch pedals...
