I remember fondly the days when a Tele or a Strat was a simple kind of thing - well maybe two types of things coming with either a maple or a rosewood fingerboard. Back when there was no MIM or MIJ or MIA or Players Editions or Classic Vibe or Road worn or----. Most Teles were white (but some were other colours - my first in 1969 was red). Back then there was no reason to suppose that a Tele played by somebody like Mike Bloomfield or Roy Buchanan or anyone else was any different than the one I had. Those were the days, I guess.
