    Been kind of looking for something like this Custom Shop 52 Tele thats at Folkway Music. I see its been a hold. I think I'm going to call tomorrow to tell them that if the person that has it on hold doesn't end up taking it I would be interested. I would want to go down there and check it out in person before I committed though.

    Thats what I figure. I've squirreled money away specifically for this and I don't mind it sitting there till I find exactly what I want.

    I'm the very lucky guy who bought this guitar. Apparently it had been listed on the store web site for about 12 hours. They put it up one evening and I happened to see it the following morning and I called them right away. I don't like to buy guitars without seeing and playing them but I talked with the guys at the shop for some time about it, and they took some measurements- the neck thickness that the first fret and the fret size too, and I decided to go for it.
    It's an amazing tele! I have had several custom shop guitars from Fender and this one is by far the best. The neck (.875 at the first fret) is to die for.
    I only have one other tele with a neck that comes as close as this one to, for me anyway, the perfect neck- and that is the neck on my Danocaster. (it's the one in my avatar) If you can your hands on one of these, they're also exceptional guitars.

    No pics on the original link and I'd love to see your new acquisition! When you have time, pics please!

    Edit - found 'em and it's gorgeous!

    Congratulations on the new guitar. The neck dimension you specify makes me feel a little better anyway. To slim for me. My masterbuilt nocaster is .990 at the first and 12th fret and is the perfect size for me. Not quite as big as some nocasters. I'm looking for a custom shop 52 no smaller than .950 at the first fret.
