    The neck pickup is screwed to the pickguard in the photos of the actual guitar for sale.
    Huge non-conformity with the "official" photos of the guitar in the same page where the specs are described (not to mention butt ugly and definitely not "61" period correct) .

    Then you might not prefer the "Grease Bucket" wiring either? I am not a fan of the shell guard on Telecasters; though, it does not look bad on that color...but that is very subjective. I too agree the Texas specials are a bit much on a Tele for me.

    You should buy what you like! I understand wanting feedback from others, but we are not you.

    Good luck,

    Buck

    Ha! I just saw that. That looks so wrong to me. I wonder if the size shape of the Texas Special neck pup requires that?? OUCH

    Naw, the Texas Special neck is the same form factor as any other Tele neck. Easier to adjust the height, of course, but that don't make it right for a reissue.

    No nothing different with the size of the TS, which btw is an AWESOME neck pup.
    Somebody simply messed up with the guitar AFTER it was purchased,maybe it is a used guitar?
