Hi guys, I've been offered a trade of a JA 90 Jim Adkins tele for my les Paul 70's tribute.
Anyone played/tried one? They look pretty good, kinda fender meets les Paul special vibe. Is it worth a trade? I never play the Gibson and I think the Adkins is actually worth more than my les Paul. Thoughts? _________________ Fingers or Pick?
The HB stuff is nice... I bought one of their ST-62 strats as a project guitar, I replaced the trem for a Wilkinson one but haven't done any of the other mods I had planned as it already sounds like a good strat.
I played and didn't like the JA tele just didn't like the feel, I'd rather have a Les Paul... but if you're not playing yours it might be the swap for you. _________________ Extreme distortion used discreetly...

The Adkins basically is a LP- same bridge, set neck?, scale length, controls, P90s etc. I've seen loads of them for sale second hand, either there are loads of them or the owners don't fancy keeping them. All valued around £350.

Gumtree seems to always have a couple of those Teles up for sale swap. The last one that sold here went for about £180. They seem to be one of those guitars that nobody seems to keep. I tried that one (mainly due to the price) and it felt quite cheap. It sounded OK but I really didn't like the feel of it.
You'll get a way better trade for the LP if you stick that up and just bide your time.
