And are the Fender Custom Shop ones worth checking out?
it depends on what you are looking for a more modern tele or a vintage style tele?
modern I would go for a suhr or anderson or melancon etc,
vintage I would go Rice, Vinetto, K-line, Nash etc.
also consider relic or not?
So ... if you know exactly what you want now, sure, go ahead and order it, but if not, consider finding a pick-of-the-litter Fender and have fun with it!
Yep Steve, I played one at last year's winter NAMM. I walked away wanting one of each...decided to start with the "S"-type first; but when funds allow, there's a contoured Bakersfield in my future.Great looking guitars! Have you played one? I know many have played his S-style, but have not heard much about the T.
