    Nice DIY job, Tele!

    As you rightly said, this series was produced for a couple of years, 7/2006 until 11/2008 and came in Black, Chrome Red, Brown Sunburst, Midnight Wine and Electron Blue.

    The enhancements for this series were Standard Gig Bag, new hotter pickups (as you mentioned), Medium Jumbo Frets and shielded internal cavities.

    I am currently chasing an Electron Blue one as we speak, lefty version of course, so i shall let you know if / when I am successful.

    Sounds cool. I’m not decided on the blue but I did see one sell for €300 recently. I’d buy one for that and have a pair!!! Thank you!

    I don’t know why guys mod them. If I stick locking tuners, SD pickups and SS saddles on it’s an extra €400 including tech labour. Add that to what I paid and you’re almost in the new US Fender ball park for a few dollars more! Lol. I’ll keep it as it is as it’s a fine guitar and I can’t fault it. Why shell out the money to hear maybe a 10% sound improvement? I can get another Tele for the price! Good instrument set up, good amp signal path is more or less half the battle. Better to practice your chops than waste time nitpicking. Any time I was blown away by the great playing of a busker on the street I never walked away thinking, “ok so he had a cheap Ibanez and battery powered transistor amp”! Duh! Play well and people will notice your chops not your gear!
