I just traded my MJT Tele ($850) that I was not bonding with for a 2013 Fender DRRI + '05 Fender MIM '72 Tele Deluxe. Score, right!?! The Tele, while much maligned isn't THAT bad. It is muddy but it definitely has potential. I just sold the amp ($650) and I've bought a Duncan P-Rail loaded pickguard with new pots for $220. I'm planning on making the Tele a sleeper backup that's versatile and unassuming, while pocketing some $$$. I plan on posting clips once installed, but right now I am quite pleased with an excellent CL trade.
