Fender is finally catching up to what Squire did in 2003 (Squire "Tele Custom II"), and making it's own version if this guitar. Sadly, it's probably not American-made. I'm guessing it's made in Mexico? You can see this in Guitar Center's "Musical Gifts to Light up the Holidays" pamplet/magazine. Good luck trying to find information on this guitar online, though. It seems to still be completely hidden, and can only be seen in this pamplet. I've always considered the Squire Custom II Telecaster w/ p90 to be one of the greatest guitars ever made. They're not "perfect" when purchased, but the potential is so staggering that I almost bought two of them at my music shop many years ago. Since then, I've swapped the neck with a Fender Deluxe MIM neck (helped to warm and fatten the tone), Fralin P90s, CTS pots, did a full setup, and added some cosmetic upgrades. Now, this guitar is bliss to my ears. The only thing that is intriguing about this whole deal, is that this new Fender Tele Custom comes with either an Alder or an Ash body. The Squire Custom II Tele came only with an Agathis body. Despite what you may hear people say, Agathis isn't a bad wood at all for a guitar. My Agathis body carries some great tone and sustain. However, I'm planning on swapping the guts from my Squire to this new Fender guitar, and probably will choose an Alder body. I'm thinking this would give the guitar a little more sparkle and character over the Agathis body. I'm pretty much counting out that you cannot buy custom made bodies that are exactly like these bodies with p90 routing, so swapping stuff from new guitars is one of my only choices. Finally, something came along that might be worth it! (aside from the Black Dove) Priced at: $649 Black (Alder) $699 Sunset orange (Ash) Fender even lets you choose from a maple or a rosewood neck. Anyhow, letting you all know.
