    I'd like to try one, actually, but the reissues don't have the genuine pickups. You can get reissue pickups aftermarket, though, but $$$. The real Tele Deluxe is supposed to have a very precise, cutting sound that is great for effects-heavy tones.

    You may be right about that. Relayer has a thin, trebly sound, and I swear I read that he played a Tele Deluxe on it, but that could have been a mistake by the writer. I'll have to watch the QPR 1975 footage again to see what he's playing on the Relayer songs.

    That's the only album I recall him using a Tele on. He started using an early 60s strat after that when he wanted Fender tones (which is surprisingly often).

    I know he played that 50's Tele on The Ladder, but how much I have no idea. Relayer was the Tele, TRSOG from Tales was 345 and the rest of that album was a Les Paul Junior, and as you note the GFTO album was almost all Strat except for the pedal steel. He always sounds like him though. The beginning of Asia's Heat Of The Moment, that 5 chord intro, is 5 different guitars, one chord each lol

    Well, and Robben Ford playing one for years before the Esprit.

    Well, I dig that Caster. Fender should [re]issue it - as the multiscaled Seventhcaster FF.

    I wonder who modeled for Alice..
    And, of all the understood symbology, I still miss why the book is open on a page with capital D..

    I googled the Starcaster because I hadn't seen one before - the first images just showed the body and I thought that's not so bad. Then I saw the headstock.
