3 things I don't like about the tele

1) uncomfortable shape

2) weight - (too heavy)

3) short radius neck - (I prefer a 12 - 14" radius)

One thing I do like about the tele

1) Tone

 

Insights and incites by Notes

I'm there with you about that tone

I'm also with you about the 7.25" neck radius. And yes, even the flatter 9.5" are not ideal, but they are available with 12" rads now, and its about time.

What I dont like about Teles:

String spacing. Keep pushing those e strings off the edge (rolled edges don't help either). Its the only reason I don't own one.

I had to skip ahead several times to get to where the dork actually talks about the guitars used in "Get Back"(like the clip title promised).  I was already familiar with the history of Epiphone and Kalamazoo.  And the history of Epiphone and the Beatles use of them.  

Oh, and thanks for the SPAM warning(he said sarcastically).

He did go in a lot of different directions. And the guy playing guitar to me adds nothing. I want history and facts. I know what the guitars sound like on the Let It Be album, I’ve had it for decades.

How nice of John to give “The Hawk” his Braz D-28. Now worth a heap s-hit ton of $. And no one knows where it is except the owner since Ronnie traded it for a ‘74.

Thanks for sharing that Sgt.  Loved the different guitars and info,  Yeah, I didn't see why they had the guy playing his guitar either.  I never had a Strat or a tell but I wonder about them as my jag can be tricky to play. Before, I could never bend strings as they always went over the edge. I changed it out and as it is better than before, I rarely play it.

I'm curious about your Jaguar. The strings went over the edge of what? The fretboard? So was it the neck you changed out?

Yeah people who own Fenders have said many times that strings go over the edge due to the rolled edged of Fender necks.

Sorry, I thought I typed bridge, The original bridge allowed the strings to move left and right about 1/4" or so. Yes, the top strings pushed to the top edge of the fret board and the high E kept going over the edge as I like to vibrate the bottom 2 a lot. A lot of times I pull downward some.  I installed a different bridge on it.  It is much better now.

not being a d*ckhead, but that's a technique thing.  But hey,  if it works for you,  you gotta be you.. 🙂

 

at least you were able to get it resolved.

Thanks, The stock bridge had screw like threads and the strings slid back and forth all the time. I installed a Mustang bridge on it. I guess there is a third choice and it is supposed to be better yet?
