Saw this and had to make her mine. 500 made. Matches my strat. Got the last one they had in Corona! Incredible player. Will be a main axe for sure.

Very cool! I've seen a lot of people make "Telemaster" partcasters but this model is the first I've seen Fender do it from the factory

 

I bet it sounds and feels great [love]

Nice! Congrats! My Tele is the same finish and pick guard combo.

 

I found it interesting how they call this guitar a "Telecaster"—even though it's "offset".

Cool shape and colour T'man - a rosewood board and a Seth Lover HB subbed in at the neck would be on my wishlist, but very nice as is. Congrats mate!

Congrats on the funniest looking Telecaster I've ever seen. [biggrin][thumbup]

 

To my eyes she has some Fender Jaguar genes, too. ;) The case is a Jaguar case I think, isn't it?

Thanks everyone! It is everything the American Standard Telecaster is except the Jazzmaster/Jaguar body. You're right Caps. Looks very Indie to me. CookieMonster the shape is why I got it! I love it and it is comfortable as hell to play. Been playing it incessantly. Has a custom shop vintage bridge pickup and twisted tele neck pickup. Bridge is a modern take on the vintage with intonatable saddles.

I still have and play my black V and now these 2 will join the Firebird and be my bright side to the dark side V. :rolleyes:[biggrin]

Now don't get me wrong it's a beautiful axe as everyone here agrees but I guess it's the calling it a Tele that plays tricks with my old geezer brain matter.

Would love to play one though.

Thanks folks! I'm typically a Gibson guy and love the overdriven sound of a bridge position Gibson humbucker through a tube amp. Lately I've been going for clean and either quacky (strat) or now twangy with this all but looks Tele. Through Blackface circuitry, I have found heaven in my guitar sound (at least for me!).

Wow, thats nice indeed....thanks for giving me gas again!!!

 

Anything I can do to help the cause I will try to do.

Don't check out the other colors available. No need to exacerbate the pain....... :unsure:

I so love these; Fender need to do this as part of the standard line, methinks! I would love to be in a position to be able to buy one - might have to make one!

 

Looks like a stunning guitar, Tman; make she bring you much and make a lot of noise!

I can certainly do the noise part!

 

There are a lot of options where you can build one for sure. Warmoth is one. Cool stuff!

Congrats on the new guitar. She's a beauty.

 

I am not a fan of the standard Tele only because that broad, flat top with no relief on the upper part for your strumming arm is uncomfortable. Having the Tele sound/settings in an offset body is brilliant.
