    It seems to me that Teles are going through a phase right now. They're hip and trendy, and cool to play for a multitude of coinciding reasons. They were certainly not this popular ten years ago.

    Agree though that the Strat is more aesthetically pleasing to my eye. There's a reason it is the #1 copied body shape of all time.

    Still, want to build an HHTele, in large part because it's so simple.

    Strats have always been the de facto rock guitar (along with LP's), but mainstream rock has diminished the last 10 years and been replaced by indie/alternative which favors the Tele for a number of reasons (the ironic "primitive ugliness", not being as popular, the desire for a bright twinkly sound).

    Honestly, I want to love my telecaster, but I just play my strat more. The back body cut makes a big difference, and the only tone I really dig on the Tele is bridge.

    Speaking of indie guitars, my Jazzblaster project is finally going to the shop to be completed!

    Have you looked into the Retro-Sonic Chorus? It's supposed to be an exact clone of the CE-1, though now also discontinued (and increasing in price) due to lack of MN3002 BBD chips.

    They still go for a bit less than a vintage CE-1 and also run on 9-12v vs 120v.

    i have sort of. I saw on on ebay for $400+ and thought fuck it since Guitar Center has two CE-1's for $350.


    the 9V is nice though and def. an advantage over the CE-1.

    HEY! I bought my Big Muff new.

    My DS-2 is whack, so I might seek out a new one. A new one meaning an old one.

    both my WH10's are old, yes.

    my Boss super chorus isn't old but it's pretty beat up. It sucks the life out of batteries too.

    Yeah, they aren't a ton cheaper. One was going for $325 BIN recently -- was tempted to pick it up, but trying to pare down things right now.
