First post! lurked forever, finally registered. Play mostly Strats & Gibsons, close to pulling trigger on my first Tele - think its a partscaster, neck is from 2005-2006 American Deluxe with 60th anniversary stamp & 2005 headstock serial number, date stamp on heel from Feb 2006. A previous owner modded it to Nashville config with middle pickup & a push-pull pot, and I think it might not be the original 2006 body - possibly a newer year Deluxe. Neck pocket & backplate images attached, I think somebody had another neck on that body- the hole pattern has two extra full-size holes, not small CNC machine guide holes. Any thoughts on what's going on with that body? Are those two extra holes a serious concern for cracking? Stamped "J-6413" and hand-written "OK" in the neck pocket. Price is reasonable, several hundred below matching Deluxes from 2005-2006. seems like a good entry point. Alternative is a 94-95 MIM Squier for about half the price, but I'd want to gut the electronics, tuners, this is much nicer looking.
