So I went for it, got it yesterday afternoon for $1,299 on sale at Tom Lee Music, $1,599 at every other guitar shop in Southern BC. This is the one I'll be taking to the grave, without question the most comfortable guitar I've ever felt, and so damn beautiful in person. Ash body, maple fretboard, Custom Shop single-coils, chrome hardware, every inch of this guitar is just gorgeous.

Showed up to practise eager to break it in, a bit of uncertainty lingering in my mind regarding the pick-ups holding their own in a metal setting. It handled everything we threw at it no problem, the bridge pup especially handled thick distortion very well. I can't imagine a swap-out being necessary, totally exceeded our expectations, and I'm so glad.

Completely satisfied and madly in love. Proud to be reppin' the Telecaster family.

Tip if you buy a new acoustic. Every time you play it spend the last few minutes of every session strumming full bar chords pretty hard and letting them ring. The only way to break in an acoustic is to get everything really vibrating a lot - and over a period of time.

All I've really played is strats and teles. I like strats with light, warm-tone strings, set in the neck pickup. Put on a short delay and some fuzz, amd the guitar doesn't matter anymore as long as it's of some minimal quality.
