Anyone own or have any experience with the Classic Player Baja Telecaster? Reading good things about them and would like to play one but L&M doesn't seem to have many or any stores that have them in stock.
I had a Les Paul with Jimmy Page wiring & my favourite tone was both pickups split, in series/in phase, which is the same thing that you get from a 4-way switch in a Tele. I could live without the S-1 as the only useful tone when it's engaged is the in series/out of phase one I mentioned above, but the 4-way is quickly becoming a go to.Owned one, sold to a cool fellow member here on the forums. Fantastic build quality/fit &finish. The chunky neck on them (V to C shape) with the medium jumbo frets was probably my favourite feature. I wasn't too fond of the 4-way switch with the S1, I actually considered to turn it into an Esquire at one point.
If one was in the market for a Tele with a nice chunky neck, can't really beat the Baja for the price.
Fatter neck, better pickups, brass saddles. Quality wise I would put this guitar on par with a couple of other higher-end MIM guitars I used to own (a Road Worn Tele & Robert Cray Strat). Playability is great, mind you I'm still in honeymoon mode about the neck.How would it compare to a Telecaster mim standard. That is what I have now.
