It's a used Tele and I put it on layaway at guitar center because it can't be sold until October 1st because of a County policy on used gear. I immediately fell in love with the guitar, it feels great to play and sounds amazing as well. Can anyone tell me about this guitar? I've read that since 2011 was the anniversary of the Tele almost all made then had had a back plate with a commemorative design. Is this true? I noticed that the paint doesn't look like a typical poly coat, that is normally on MiM fenders. As I looked closely I could see see the texture of the grain on the paint and if I rub my hand across it you can actually feel a little bit of the grain. Can this aging of polyurethane occur or is this exclusive to Nitrocellulose?
