Indeed it is, but I still think 'we' can tempt you...



...look at those jumbo frets. Hmmmm nice!

Don Grosh are my favorite tele's. Their hollow T is heaven.

While my Baja Tele may violate some historical Tele rules with 4 position switch and S1 switching, I sure do love her. Blonde, black guard and maple board. My favorite combination. And that soft V neck is crazy comfortable. Throw in the USA pickups and a used price tag around $500 and it’s an outrageous value.

I love all of my guitars but the one type I cannot foresee ever not having is a telecaster. Just something about that basic raw sound. I need to try out some other versions now!

I would love a vintage tele deluxe with two wide range humbuckers! I would change out the pickups on the Kotzen as it's not the tone I want. I'm not sure about the neck shape either. I would prefer a 52 or a nocaster shape.

Default Not just for Rock!

RK talks about the design...




the pickups...




...and in context:

Just for the record, they make Tele-like guitars. Only FENDER makes Telecasters.

Depends on the goal. Mine obviously isn't dead vintage spec. I wanted something that handles like a Ferrari. The B-Bender was original. The palm lever G-Bender was added recently and made by Rolling Bender. Twangy, fast, and multiple bends, and lots of Strat/Tele tones with a push/pull 7 way wiring.

I’ve owned a few Teles over the years. Including the Baja mentioned. They’re great guitars in their own right. Superb value and features. To a purist...they’re not a “real” Tele. To me...they’re a FANTASTIC buy if looking for a Tele with a wide array of features.

That being said, my new Players series is one of the most fun Teles I’ve owned. Great necks, 22 frets, alnico V pickups, stellar build quality.

Is it the BEST Tele money can buy...doubtful. But, it is a great Tele to have in the stable. You betcha...Especially considering it’s price point.
