I looked for this model in the "Owners' Clubs" forum and didn't find one. Anyway, here's my story.... A few weeks ago, I bought a Fender Brad Paisley Road Worn Telecaster. I had heard about it via Facebook, believe it or not. I saw that my local Guitar Center had one in stock. I went down during lunch and decided to check it out. I was very pleasantly surprised by how it felt, played, and sounded. It was like I had owned it for 10 years. I pulled the trigger and bought it. I had read wear guys were having trouble with neck stickiness. Most of the reports were coming from the TDPRI. I know it's finished in nitrocellulous lacquer. To me, that's a good thing. Well, after a couple of weeks, I started noticing some "gunk" on the fretboard. I wash my hands, insesently, but the neck "was" getting gunky and stickier. Interestesting that I have owned other guitars with lacquered finishes and they got smoother and dryer with time. This one was getting worse. I was also kind of getting tired of the silver sparkle. I need to make a decision before my 45 days were up. I decided to return it. What to get though? I wok about 10 minutes from my local GC. I'm there probably 2-3x/week during lunch; usually trying out different amps. I'm always using the same few guitars; daphne blue Classic 50s Strat, white blonde Deluxe Nashville Tele, and Classic Player 50s Baja Tele. I enjoy all those guitars. Yesterday, I decided to make a decision and the Nashville won. I really like the way Fender did that model. The pickups are very nice and hum-free and it has a great feel. I have always really liked the satin-finished necks. Brought it home and realized that the 9-guage have to go. They felt like rubber bands. Put my favorite strings on (Ernie Ball Regular Slinkies) and it felt much better. I collect pickguards. I have an aged white pearl and a tortoise shell; both with Nashville pickup routes. Both look horrid. The 3-ply black looks good but I think a black pearl might look better. I really like the tone of the Noiseless pickups and no hum. My sound guy's going to appreciate that! They're the "Vintage Noiseless" models. Again, I was pleasanty surprised by how nice they sound. I did install a set of Dunlop straplocks that I had lying in a drawer. It's kind of funny. I have, at any given time, 2-3 guitars. I sell and trade often though and am getting tired of it. I'd like to settle down with what I have. Kind of always yearning for that classic 50s/60s Tele but ALWAYS putting it a middle Strat pickup. I like versatility. That partially why I chose the Nashville.
