If you want the real story on these (and I own one too) you can contact Jeff Krause at Fender (firstname.lastname@example.org). Jeff contacted me a couple of weeks ago and explained why my guitar is an Old Growth Tele rather than the Browns Canyon model. He was very informative and I think, truthful. I posted it on the Tele Discussion forum at that time.
If the phone don't ring it's me!
