    Some people think shoulder divots and pa-fucked shoulder lines are imperceptible as well. :)

    If a new guitar happens, you are both sitting in the back.

    Yes, I love teles and have played them extensively--my dad has a few. These days almost all of my playing is rehearsing with my band or preparing for rehearsal, and for that I need to pick one guitar and stick with it (which is my #1, a CS 1960 Strat). So it's hard to think about buying more guitars when I barely play the ones I already got. But yes, at some point I would love to have a telecaster again.

    There are many guys who when Les Pauls weren't the big $$$ they are today chose the sound of a painted body Goldtop or an all black Custom over a Flame-top. They chose them purely on sound and feel and not the look or construction details.

    Knopfler believes that the 58 is the best sounding Paul, because he reckons a plain top sounds better.

    Could be bullshit, but it's Mark friggin Knopfler.

    True, Page's black beauty that was stolen was his prized tone machine. It sounds insane at that 1969 show on How The West Was Won.
