    Tele is totally :slayer:

    The clean tone on the bridge pup...I just have to say it...fucking awesome. I mean, rock star awesome.

    Action is very excellent, enjoying it overall. Working on crunch and OD sound but just playing around very warm and smooth.

    Yeah, I have no idea why they did that. I've read something about easier/better to intonate, less twangy, but I've really no idea. I need to finish writing this report memo though so I can go play a bit. My fingering is totally off on this vs. the LP.

    Yes, the 6 individual strat saddles make string intonation (both individual and between multiple strings) much easier than having two strings per saddle or all 6 across one bar.

    I'd always assumed the Tele-bridge twang was b/c of placement of the pickup + metal plate on which it all sits.

    Well, okay, I'm only back to playing since September after about 30 years off but I'm going to make a statement between my LP and the Tele. The Tele, for lack of a better word, exposes your playing more. If you got something nailed it sounds clean and great but if not it's pretty glaring you just fucked up. The LP is a more forgiving guitar.

    You can use that tele jangle to mask a lot.

    What makes me feel this way is how damn clean the clean is. There's no comparing the bridge pup clean on the Tele with anything the LP can put out. The LP is much darker than the Tele.

    tele is great because you can go from glassy clean (through an old Bassman? hard to beat), and then easy push it for some awesome tones

    The tone knob is much more meaningful on the Tele too. On top of that this one has the ability to override that circuit (Delta Tone) so you get a real bright, punchy tone when you do that.

    It's more forgiving because it's a humbucker. The canceling of tone also cancels high end frequencies. The noise it cancels is also a lot of fingering and fret noise. This is why the vintage (or custom wound) unmatched coils sound better (but are more revealing) it let's those frequencies through.

    So not my imagination then?

    Edit: Oh, need something other than my Big Muff Pi for some dirt with the Tele. Thoughts?

    Keeley tube screamer or DS2 (the first is softer, the second is harder)
