      I was going to open it at work today, to check for shipping damage, but there was a red sticker on the inner box with a warning about finish damage that can occur if you open it before you’ve let it gradually reach indoor temperature. Twenty-four hours is recommended.
      What’s funnier than putting up roadblocks to stop the advance of someone who’s running away from you at four hundred miles an hour?

        You and I are literally the only two people to follow that warning.

        Granted it was 0F when mine was on the porch.
        Oh no.....


        Oh Yeah!

          I followed that instruction when I received my R0. Better safe than sorry. Plenty of time to play it going forward.

          I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

            I was thinking, “hot FedEx truck, hot car, air conditioned office and home, once-in-a-lifetime guitar purchase, nitrocellulose lacquer” types of considerations.

              By the way, congrats on an awesome guitar!

                  Getting an ashtray bridge cover easily justifies the price.

                    1. Ashtray bridge cover
                    2. Three-position pickup switch
                    3. Neck pickup quacks all by itself.
                    4. Every visible screw head is slotted.
                    5. The neck isn’t that big. I was expecting something irresponsibly large.
                    6. The lack of a bevel on the pickguard is jarring to say the least.
                    7. No truss rod access from the headstock end
                    8. The tuning machines are really nice.
                    9. The output jack cup is deep enough that I can’t use right-angle plugs.
                    10. I checked the first octave, and it intonates pretty well.

                      That would stay in the case; it gets in the way if you actually play the guitar.

                      That would drive me crazy. It drives me nuts that SDs come with slotted screws instead of phillips.

                      I could live with that as long as it's not too small. The neck on my Tele is from a MIM Blacktop, and it's on the thicker side of their standard C profile.

                      I'd have to REALLY like the guitar to put up with that.

                      Good to have!

                      I'm not sure why I did this, but it seemed fun when I thought of it.

                      I also have a six-saddle bridge on my Tele. I know some call it sacrilege, but my idea of Tele tone doesn't include lousy almost-intonation.

Which is why many people play electric guitars but very very few of them are actually musicians.

                        Nice guitar. Nice grain on the body. Plus you get to relive all the quirks and annoyances of yesteryear like sharp edge pick guards, slotted screws and what to do with the spare ashtray. Living the dream. Iíd rock the hell out of that guitar. Nice score.

                          That's the godfather of all Teles. Congrats! There is nothing more iconic than a butterscotch blackguard 50's Tele! So so so good!

                            Did I miss where you told us what actual model it is?

                              does it have the weird old wiring or normal modern tele neck/both/bridge?

                                It’s a Fender American Original ‘50s Telecaster.
