I had $400 in hand from my bday, and was looking for bass accessories, when I saw the mexican teles, sitting all alone. I thought "what the heck?" and played one, well, I ended up buying it. Its a nice sunburst, not sure if I dont like black better, might exchange it in a week or so. Anyone else got the temptation and got a guitar? BTW, bass is still and always will be by main instrument.
