I stopped at GC on the way home from work, and did some serious browsing. I spotted this new '08 Am Telecaster. I was expecting to be underwhelmed. I couldn't have been more wrong. I played it for about a half hour, and decided I had to have it. The workmanship is excellent. The neck feels great, and the pickups are very nice. I'm very impressed with it so far. Came with a real decent case, too. I'll post more about how it plays after I spend some serious time with it. For now, here are some pics.
