  9. Thanks Steelcity!
    It's nothing special really, just a 2013 HSS ... but I saw it at a really good price and I'm a real sucker for Fenders with maple fretboards, so .... :)

    They are fine looking guitars but it's so strange I could never bound with them

    You are not alone - now that I have that car tele back - I think my 51 has to go ! I always skip over mine and it's not fair to either of us ! lol

    I never liked the look of a '51, but it really has a great sound and a unique feel. I don't play mine as much as I should, but it really is the kind of instrument that can do a lot.

  13. In addition to the unique sound/features, I like the jack position on the comfy sculpted Strat body.
    In fact ... I would prefer it if all Strats had the same jack position instead of the angle jack.
    And the maple fretboard is a big plus for me ... which I also prefer on all Fenders. :)

    The key is finding the right combination of pickups which has eluded me- I like the way mine plays but it sounds bad - I realize this is my fault

    Yes, the jack placement is one of the things that makes it seem more Tele-like. The jacks on both of my 51's had to be loctite-ed (on the original, toothpicks, and wood glue in the mounting screw holes as well).

    It does make it uncomfortable/difficult if you like to sit on the bed and play, which I most often do with the acoustic or Strat, because of said jack placement.

    I really like the control plates on the Ibanez Talman, but it needs to be a smidge longer to fit another control for a something like a 51.
