Nice looking tele there. Got a bit of twang in her, I'd expect.
Not sure about the year on the Alvarez. Sometime between the mid 70's and late 80's is my guess. I bought it without much research at the Guitar Center in town... which I never do. I paid $329 which could be a little high, but it plays nice and I convinced myself I needed a 12-string.
It was an impulse decision, but I can return it for up to 45 days or something. I am bonding with it a little bit though and I may just keep her.
