    Hey Everyone,

    I'm no Tele aficionado so thought I'd ask the question if all 2006-2008 Mexican standard Tele's have a satin finish on the front and back of the maple neck?

    From what I can research on here I have found out all else I want to know about MIM Tele's and have read that from 2008 is when they started coming out with tinted necks, so just wanted to confirm as if that is the case then I know what model to look for.

    Reason I ask is because I have found a 2007 model interstate so can't go a try it out but if I can get it for a good deal then I'll take the punt.

    I have tried my friends 2015 MIM standard which is good but not exactly what I want, the players series are good too as I like the satin back but not big on the gloss fretboard, as I only plan on owning one Tele I just want to get everything I want, and a performer/American Special isn't in the budget right now.

    Thanks for reading.
