I just recently bought a white (sorta) Telecaster with pearloid pickguard. The SN starts with DN8xxxxx, so it fits the description of a '98 Tele Deluxe per the info page of tdpri. It has lace sensors, however, it does not have a middle pup or S-1 switching. It does have jumbo frets, abolone inlays, and the chrome Fender logo on the headstock. I checked the control cavity, and didn't see any dates, though I could have missed them. The solder joints looked as though they could be original. I bought the guitar from the 2nd owner, not that it matters... Has anyone seen anything similar to this?
