I haven't bought a Fender in 10+ years...I am pretty much a Suhr, Anderson, Ruokangas guy. However, I saw this 2005 Fender '52 FSR Deluxe bound Tele and the price was great (meaning I can try it and, if it doesn't work out, I'll not lose any money on a resell). The main reasons I bought it were the contoured neck heel, wide nut and fatter U neck...I usually buy custom builds because Fender doesn't make them fat and wide enough for me unless I shell out $4-6000 which is ridiculous. I'll probably replace the pickups (though I think the SCNs are really not bad) and I will for sure replace the bridge and control plate (Rutters) but I think it's an unusual and very cool looking guitar with most of the specs I'd normally want. What do you guys think?
