Brand new Baja came today. I traded off a cheap 70s Greco LP towards this purchase and have only played her for about 30-40 minutes.....but.....I can see that this is going to be good. Right out of the box the setup was quite playable. Very clean, very VERY chimey. I love that aspect. This is my 3rd Tele and it's different from the other 2 tonally. One is a Kirn Barnbuster, the other an MJT w/a Minihum in the neck. Both great Tele's, and I see this is going to be also. The only thing I plan to do to this is put on Wilkinson compensated saddles and Dunlop Straplocks. This guitar sounds so good out of the box, changing the pickups won't be necessary, at least anytime soon. Up till now I've only been able to get a neck like this in the aftermarket at this price point. Nice fat neck for a production guitar!
