Whats the difference besides the S1 switching?
Beefier neck, better pups, 3 barrel vintage style bridge, 4 way switching in addition to the S-1. Find a light one and you got yourself a nice plank.
The Baja is a great tele and a bargain in the Fender Lineup. Yes, find a light one and you will have a tele for life.
Baja blows away the standard tele just on the neck alone, not to mention all of the other features. I've had one for close to a year and it really does everything. A/B a few in the store for flaws. I've actually seen them with flame in the neck if that's your thing.
I've tried every Tele I can get my hands on all the way up to the American Deluxe and the Baja is the best for me. I do wish they had more color options though.
I have a dead mint American Stratocaster in Olympic white with a maple board, as much as I love it, I'd trade it for a Baja if I could.
