I too found a chinese telecaster copy that is very good. When making  
my decision in the store this one sounded better than the new ones  
from Fender, and it was way cheaper! It's a JD, Jack and Denny  
Brothers. They specialize in buying loads of high quality spare parts  
and send these with containers to China for mounting. So a JD can be  
good or bad, it all depends on which parts happen to end up in the  
same instrument. I was lucky that I found mine before it was sold. No  
bigsby or humbucker though, that wouldn't fit in with the particular  
Tele sound I have a need for. For twanging I use a strat. I've been  
tempted to check out a humbucker equipped tele for a jazz sound  
though, Tal Farlow had a nice sound IMHO with that combo. But on the  
other hand, If once played for some years with an ibanez George  
Benson and I think that model still does top my list for a jazz box -  
will buy one again when I get rich ;-))  And put a Bigsby on it.
