    Sorry! I take it for granted sometimes. There are a lot of initials in that post.

    Leo Fender designed a lot of different pickups (over 40+ years) and stated his Magnetic Field Design were his best ever and many agree, including me.
    ASAT? Leo wanted to name the G&L T-type the Broadcaster (as he tried when with Fender) but Gretsch reminded him that they still owned the name. ASAT is an anti-satellite missile, wth?

    But I bet SDOTD was the problem. Musician's Friend has their Stupid Deal Of The Day that is always a great deal. In 2020 I bought four guitars that way but they almost never drop their guitars that cheap these days.
    That Classic Ash was normally $500 but on sale for one day for $299.99 and I was very lucky to grab one. It's a great guitar for $500 but at that price it was probably the best deal I've ever found.

    I've been waiting patiently for an Irish Ale MFD Tele like yours to come back on sale, but I may be waiting forever. With import supply low, I doubt there's any excess inventory to blow out with a SDOTD.

    I do not know? It was on Reverb and it was 400 or a little over. No one wanted it when I posted it on the forum I posted. Not here.

    Yes, I am afraid you might be right.
    I got that one Feb 2020 when GC had a 20% off sale so I paid $400. Last year they had sales pretty often but as you know things have changed. I've never seen that model as a SDOTD.

    I really like the G&L guitars I own and used ones seem to sell for fairly low prices, I've noticed some US-made models that I thought were good deals. The problem there is that the import Tribute series (only those with MFDs) have the same pickups as those made in California, they ship the pickups to Indonesia for assembly.
    The imports are reallly good and I'm afraid that the US models may only be a little bit better and to someone on a tight budget like me not worth twice the price. JMO

    Here’s my 2007 Squier Affinity Tele (Dodgy Fender headstock logo lol)

    Bought brand new in 2007 for the sum of £115..
    This guitar is a real workhorse!! In all the years I’ve owned it all it’s had done is regular restringing & the odd clean up.
    Still plays & sounds as good as many guitars that would cost up to 10 times more money…
    Love it! 5EB4F2AB-0795-4F2D-A4D6-CD6F6AD733A7.jpeg

    I found it for sale. Reverb sellers sometimes make great stuff. But they are overlooked as basement luthiers.

    Well I just ordered a Player limited edition from MF. I have a feeling it is an old stock 2019 because there is one on reverb. I called and was assured it is a new in box unit coming from their Kansas warehouse. I bought my first ever electric in May and my second in July both Gretsch which I love. Thought a Tele would round things out nicely. From my limited research this seemed to be more than I need considering how poorly I play and they have a great price on this version right now.

    2nd partscaster. I built the body, figured maple cap on a chambered alder body with a belly cut. Warmoth neck.
    Those are great guitars, but the background scenery steals the show!
