My #1 for about 20 years was an American Standard Strat (still have it). Long story short, within the last 10 years or so other guitars have come and go, one of which is a '52 Hot Rod Tele which is now my #1. It is an awesome instrument. The skinny neck on my Am Std Strat became somewhat annoying once I got used to the fat neck on the Tele. The build quality and overall awesomeness of the Tele coupled with my of Strats has me gassing over the '62 HR, especially the white/mint setup. I really don't need another guitar right now, but I have cash sitting in my Paypal account which I had forgot about. Anyway, please tell me how much the '62 Hot Rod Strat sucks so I don't do something I shouldn't do!
