    Indonesian or not this thing is well put together. It plays very well, after a few tweaks it should be really good....I can’t find the blemish on it so I’m happy. It does feel a lot like a les Paul .

    Congratulations!

    It is one of the most atypical telecasters in my book (and my collection) but I love it! I love the sound of it...

    Same here...I’m quite liking it already.....whoever set it up in Indonesia had no idea. Thirty minutes work and it plays nice.

    Never saw one like this, and # indicates 2017. Labeled Fender, not Squier, yet made in Indonesia. And no plug in truss hole.

    You learn something new every day here.

    Lots of weirdness about the JA90 Adkins. But it all works together.

    The first Fenders were made in Indonesia around 2009... From that moment on the Squiers had an ICS-prefix instead of IC, and the Fenders got ICF-prefixes.

    Only real gripe is the soldering. The pots are not CT’s but are full size. I’ve heard complaints these are noisy guitars. Every solder joint was cold. I reflowed all the joints now it’s very quiet.
