    My local shop took this 2015 Nashville in on trade. Was just too nice and new condition for me not to put a deposit on. Didn't have enough cash in pocket to leave with it, but soon enough.

    Any how I had traded my previous Nashville off so was kinda keeping eyes open for another and this one just kinda grabbed me. Looks great, feels great , sounds great.

    I think (experts can correct me) 2015 was the last year for the vintage tuners , standard bolt pattern neck , and tex mex pickups.

    Really looking forward to this one. Pics aren't real good, bad inside lighting etc.

    That's a very nice guitar. They offer great Strat tones and are even more versatile than a common Tele.

    I’ve got a deluxe Nashville power Tele from the same era.. and it is impressive in every way.

    Love me a Nashville style with a Tort pickguard!

    Beautiful!

    Are those neck routes big enough for a mini hum in 2015?

    Sorry, I have a one-track mind.

    Gorgeous. Looks like mine - a 2012 - but yours might have a bit more wear? (I play mine nearly every day and have done 400-500 gigs with it, so I've given up on the '10 year relic plan'...')

    It's a great guitar and I don' know why they're not more popular. As was said earlier, more versatile than a standard Tele, particularly if you rewire it to get the neck Bridge combination. (I also put a three saddle brass bridge on mine).

    But pickups, tuners, etc. No need to change.

    That's a nice one!

    I think this model went until the middle of 2016 - I'm 90% sure that the revised models (with the contoured neck heel, locking tuners, flatter radius neck, Vintage Noiseless pickups, etc.) came out in July 2016, but they could have come out a bit earlier.

    It's about new. Zero fret wear , not a scratch. I literally think they bought it in 2015 and put it away

    It must be pure fun to play this guitar in an Eagles cover band.

    I've always been fascinated by these, but if I remember correctly I've never actually played one. Seems if there was a forearm and belly cut it would be a good Tele/Stat in between.

    IIRC, these have swimming pool routing for middle and neck pickups, so a perfect platform for a Brent Mason mod!

    NICE! I'm not real familiar with the TexMex pickups, but as for the other features--color, neck, vintage tuners--very appealing!

    My 92 Tele had to have a new neck after 28 years , went maple and then "Nashvilled it up"
    SD Mini in Neck, Area 58 in middle, push pull on Tone to get all 7 combinations

    Nice! I played one in that same finish a few years ago and wanted to take it home as well. Didn’t have the funds though. Congrats!

    Bridge is hot, no baseplate, still sounded definitively like a Tele.

    Neck pickup is pretty clear sounding for a covered Tele neck pickup. Tex Mex sounds like a Strat pickup. The guitar does the Tele thing and the Strat thing pretty well.
