I bought a floor sample though Musician's Friend - the blond one, a classic look. Just starting to use it but I rally am enjoying it - the classic tones, big chunky neck feels great in my hand. I watched an interview with G.E. Smith countering the view that the Tele is limited by it's unique toal quality. See it for yourself but he talks about using it for all types of music including jazz and he gives some quick examples. Check it out. He's pitching his model but the point applies to Teles in general. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnQYoRYedF0
