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?

Not really related but sort of related, I got one of these recently and it is incredible. It's infuriatingly good considering how much more I've spent on other guitars.

That looks really nice. Similar sort of vibe with the p90/tele crossover

It's proper, too. Well built, maple top, mahogany, wilkinson pickups.

A steal. I planned on getting it to take the frets out to make a fretless, but it's too nice and I've chickened out.

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.

Hmmm - not sure Rob. I'd hold on for a week and wait for your LP to shift. Don't think it's worth as much as your LP, and think it would be hell on wheels to sell if/when you decide to flip it.

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.

350 is what I've got my les paul up on gumtree for currently. So potentially I'd break even if I did it.
Plus I should really be make dollar not swapping.

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.

But yeah, I agree. I think it's a great guitar, but I think you can do better in trade value.

all that being said I HATE this band



this band had 1 singer and 3 part harmonies on the back of a tractor trailer at Warp Tour.


you know that shit drives me nuts.



that and putting your emo song on Madden defeats the whole fucking purpose of writing your emo song in the first fucking place
