    This guitar is awesome! I really don't have enough good things to say about it. After my last thread I decided to go ahead and order one of these and I'm so glad I did. What an great guitar. I set it up today and it sounds amazing. Perfect for walking the line between Les Paul and Tele. Still trying to figure out how to post pics so if it doesn't work I apologize.

    Beauty! You’re set for life with the most challenging, unforgiving (humor!), and rewarding solid body electric guitar design -

    With both pickups selected, mine gives the Martins a run for their money (and then some) for home use flexibility -

    My fav design...alder/rosewood tele with vintage hardware/pups. Nothing sounds as good IMO. Nice !

    I don't know why that wouldn't work. I only own one electric guitar. I could live with that one instead.

    Sweet!!! If everything calms down soon, this is my next purchase, but in Lake Placid Blue!

    Still looking at some of the Vintera models though. The 50s look pretty cool, and I could always put pickups in them.

    I sold a lot of guitars over the past year or two and narrowed down my collection to 2, one of which is an AO ‘60s Tele. Fantastic guitars, enjoy. HNGD!

    The Vintera 60s modified is sweet too. I really enjoyed it and almost pulled the trigger when I was there in the shop but it was blue and I didn't really want blue. Eventually I decided to go ahead and order in this guitar instead. Told myself if it was really that good I'd sell my other Tele to help cover it. - I already sold the other Tele (American Pro w/solid rosewood neck) and don't regret it.

    My gut feeling is between 7 and 7.5lbs. I really don't have a super precise scale to weigh it nor do I usually worry much about it. If it sounds good I call it good. It's lighter than my American std. Strat.

    I like that a lot. I'm not usually much for the sunburst on the Telecaster, but with the binding I like it a lot.
