Thanks, having fun with it so far.
Similar to you I played (bass) when I was younger. Fast forward 30 years, I started getting back into music about a year ago and have been buying far too many lower end basses and fixing them up to be great players. I’ve been wanting a guitar as well for awhile and Black Friday was the day!
I cannot overemphasize the value of a good setup with good strings on a guitar. I did a rough first setup on the Casino yesterday and the difference in playability was astounding. If you are a DIY type this video series by John Carruthers is very helpful:
Setting Up Your Guitar
I bought D’addario jazz flats for my guitar, they are excellent in tone and feel but might not be what you want for the Tele.
