I have been hemming and hawing on a Tele for a little while, and after trying out a few, finally decided on this one. I had a chance to play one with a maple fb, but I prefer the feel of rw or ebony. Really versatile little thing. Green metallic jade is cool, and green is my daughters favorite color. Figure when my times up, she can have it! I'll post more pics and thoughts once it arrives next week!
