Enjoy this superb Tele content ...... a lefty dude as well . Cool cat , good player this Aussie named Shane lol been a fan of his for years !
Same hereI did this myself (unfortunately they were right handed so I couldnt try them out properly), I plugged in a Squier Infinity, Squier CV, and MIM Fender, surprisingly the $219 Infinity sounded best but the body was thinner than the others, also I was surprised at the excellent quality of the Infinity as well for such a low price. The $350 CV sounded better than the $650 MIM and the specs looked pretty much identical. So money doesnt always dictate whats best. I couldnt justify paying double for a Fender decal so the Squier won.
I would, except I honestly don't care enough to bother. Guitars pass by and through my hands almost as fast as sammiches. This one was just another snapshot along the highway.Its quite simple, ask your guy to order you another one. Or better yet get one on Amazon, more of an anonymous transaction, free returns if you dont like it.
I cant find anyone that will make me a lefty white pickguard reasonably so I just may have to keep the black installed. Alright, 10's are getting installed today!
Congratulations and HNGD!Squier Classic Vibe 50's Telecaster
First impressions: light weight, good tones, what more could I ask for! I was worried it would be water logged like some I've handled in the store but not this one, I'll weigh it later to see exactly how heavy it is. The wood grain and finish is nice. Fret ends feel good. I was able to dial in hard rock tones easily, right now I have it plugged into my SV20H with greenbacks, tried all my OD pedals and the guitar takes them well, settled on the Proco Rat since it gives me the heaviest tones, the volume knob works well for cleaning up the tone. I had planned on possibly replacing the bridge pickup but now that I have it in hand I'm thinking not. All I had to do was tweak the action a little bit and it will definitely need some new strings although the factory strings arent bad they feel like 9's I prefer 10's for stability. So far it feels like a keeper, I'll put some new strings on it next week and play it for awhile and see. So far so good.
Oh, and that ugly black pickguard will have to go, I'll find a single ply white one for it.
