The tone is really nice, crisp , open airy.

It sounds fat without being "too much"

PAF's are not as high output as say, the LP's I played (reissues). But the tone has a sort of ringing clarity to it.

I can't say it's worth 7x+ more than a reissue but they do have a vibe.

Last year I played tons of 50's teles. I never found a reissue that sounded as good as the best old teles. Then I found my CS Esquire and that one really does nail the tone of the old ones.

They are out there, you just have to search.

This one is significantly less than 40K due to the wear and the groverizing. All minor issues. It sounds great.

Damn, that's beautiful. I'd also rather that than a '59 burst, regardless of price.

Man, that looks just like my friend's 1959 335, just the same amount of wear! Just beautiful!

My friend mentioned his is worth like maybe 12k (rather than 40k a super clean one might fetch).

If they can get the price down to about $300, I could swing that. Let the guy know for me, thanks.

Seriously though, that's B-yootiful!
