Having purchased a new black/gold/rosewood Tele Elite in 1984, and still finding it an enduringly fabulous and versatile guitar, I am, admittedly, a fan of special edition Telecasters. Still, there have been times when I would long for that single-coil sound, and the music I play now demands it more than the rock I played in the '80s. Along came the Carved Blackwood Top Telecaster Select, and I knew this was the one. The physical beauty of the guitar, so enticing in a photo, delivers in the flesh. The feel and balance of the guitar, lightweight, chambered, and contoured, are a delight. I've made no adjustments to the guitar since un-boxing it, and the action and intonation are all that they should be. As for the pickups - the single coil does what it's supposed to in a Tele (twang, bite, and snap, with plenty of bass), and the humbucker is a revelation, from sultry jazz tones to meaty blues overdrive. If I'm lucky, I'll live another 30 years to explore the possibilities offered by this exquisite instrument.
