I have always wanted a Telecaster, but tried loads of Fenders and couldn't find "the one" till I played mine. Bought it from Guitar Brothers in Brisbane Australia. Irony is I went to buy the Les Paul, and they gave me this to play while they were setting up the LP for me to take home. I fell in love with it and bought them both. Narrowly escaped with my life when I arrived home with 2 new Guitars. But then, when are too many Guitars a problem?
