    Hi there! And greetings from cold Finland!

    I just pre ordered the new special run Noir Telecaster. So little information in the internet about that model yet, but I took a risk and ordered it, because I like satin finishes. They are great for gigging, when you sweat really much like me.

    I have a 2005 Am Std Tele for my primary guitar now (stripped the sunburst out, and coated it with satin clearcoat)

    I hope the Noir will be the perfect pair for the American :)

    Anyone else preordered the Noir yet?

    I don't hear of new models until somebody posts about them here. Thanks, I'll go looking.

    I did a quick search - that looks nice!

    And welcome to the TDPRI!

    Remember - when it arrives, pictures or it didn't happen!

    Thanks.

    Yes I'll take pictures, when the black beaty arrives. That's gonna be a long wait, because estimated delivery is still a month away :cry:

    IMG_2076.JPG Anyone pick one of these up? I just heard about them. IM not a fan of painted headstock... but black it's least offensive to me. But the red accents are a neat touch!

    looks good - I'm thinking of a bwb pickguard, and silver logo on the peghead for me.

    This model delayed so much, that I had to cancel my order. Still not available from Europe :(

    Sharp looking. Definitely a modern look. Is that a brushed aluminum pickguard or is picture deceiving? Seems to be some kind of different pattern on pickguard.

    The 3-ply pickguard is black-red-black. I'm thinking I might prefer the black HH Tele, but swap in a Strat neck pickup and new pickguard, because I like the HH Tele's contoured body.
    This Noir model is interesting, though.

    If Fender's going Noir, they need a little Double Indemnity, Maltese Falcon & the like

    It's just a regular MIM Tele with an unusual color. My local GC had one with the matching Strat. Pretty garish looking, reminded me of Batman.

    That's exactly what the fuss is: It's reminiscent of BATMAN! Now I kinda want one. Lol
