    Yup it's new handbag day, oops wait no, that's the missuses, honest...
    Yup my Mim Fender player tele arrived today. ( sorry bout the crappy strap, was a gift, leather one is in the post, along with a purple pearloid pickguard, hmm maybe the handbag was mine)
    Pretty happy, my first real single coil guitar. Sounds really bright into the vox
    Me Likey.

    How do I tell the missus I need one for open g playing and one for standard tuning? Thank God I haven't ventured into drop d territory or dagdad too often.

    Congrats on the new Tele! :applause:

    They sound killer with OD through an angry tube amp.

    My wife recently told me I'm tubby too. Guess it's time for me to start exercising! :flex:

    they do not get 'tuning". just tell her you dont have one in this "insert here" color and
    you will need a matching strap. she will then totally get it.
    or Plan B: tell her your strat makes you ass look fat. :p

    You don't. You have it held at the UPS facility and pick it up quietly. She needs to know nothing, except where the stove and washer are located.

    :monkey:

    Lol.

    It is true once you get a Tele your mind starts to ponder about another Tele .

    I want to know more about the matching handbag.

    Just get another handbag in a different color. Then tell her you need a Tele in that matching color. Simple.

    I thought this was going to be a weight gain thread at first...In fact, I recently realized it isn't the drier that's been shrinking my clothes - it's been the refrigerator the whole time!

    Congrats on the new tele & "man bag"! Always liked teles.

    Finally got an sd1 today, can't wait to take it out for a spin tomorrow. Originally wanted it for a clean boost before the ab y pedal to go into the dsl and ac15 but I've been thrashing the vox so much lately mucking around with Beatles and stones songs I might sneak it straight into the vox for a drive boost for those stones riffs.
    So pumped my previous od pedal was my first pedal, I think it's a crossfire od plus distortion pedal, it's done its job but I'm super pumped to finally upgrade. Not sure why my Mrs let me but mesa happy :)

    A Tele is the only guitar that I can make sound good on any amp.

    Congrats!

    Is it black? I can't quite tell but a black Tele with a purple pickgaurd would be Ah-MaY-ZinG, I really dig black and purple together. I was planning to put a purple pickgaurd on my black MIM strat but ended up swapping everything to a sunburst squire body... Maybe ill swap everything back... got me thinking now...

    Anyways congrats on the Tele, it's one model I've yet to own but have always wanted.

    Yeah it's black. If the pickguard ever shows up I'll post some pictures :)
