    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    I will give my two cents about the brass saddles. They do all the 'bad' things that Verne says but to me those are all good things. Depends what you want out of the instrument.

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    Thanks Huck,

    I got a set of six tele style mini brass saddles and tried them today.

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    So between the chat and the email I take it to mean that they have concluded production on these (they were announced as limited for 2019 after all) and the rest of the Tenor Teles are all built but...

  13. Re: Is the wait for the Fender Tenor Telecaster worth it?

    My local music shop had an Eastwood tenor. I picked it up and tried playing it and was not impressed at all. Something about it wasn't right for me. I've also tried the Warren Ellis Mustang shaped...
