    I don't see these listed for sale new anywhere else but eBay and most used ones I see are listed at $450 to $600. I assume this is a blowout of most of the remaining Fender stock at near dealer cost. Didn't they retail for around $799 at some point?

    You *had* to post this? Yes, I ended up ordering one -- Tele #4 for me. The tele-quack and bright neck in the video was too irresistible.

    It just needs a push pull switch to get N+B...

    My tentative plan is to try using a method I've learned of to "non-destructively" reverse the magnetic polarity of the middle pup and wire it reversed. That should provide those more "airy" and no-humming tones in switch positions 2 & 4. I may instead try a different RWRP pup in the middle to avoid any possibility of messing up the original pup.

    I'm thinking that I might put some Bill Lawrence noiseless pickups in mine at some point.

    Glad I posted this, it is nice to see others enjoy the christmas spirit and get another guitar even though we keep telling our selves the last one was the last at least for some time.

    I have come to like that nasty black Tele look. Maybe I will take My E Body Tele and use up some of the extra bridge pickups I have laying about.

    Retire my vintage Bill Lawrence stacked Tele neck pickup. Or stash it until the mood surfaces again...

    Question is, base plates?? And on which pickups?

    EDIT: I do have a stacked SDD Bridge pickup too...

    EDIT, EDIT: And maybe a Pre-B1 at the bridge for fun! Although that one has a Cav Nash/Lion in the bridge already, maybe move it to the middle and use the loose seymour duncan alnico ii pro at the neck... I am feeling some fun coming on...

    Wonder if a no baseplate 50s classic bridge pickup would be compatible middle or neck position swap. Then my old 50s Classic could have a Nocaster bridge.

    Assuming that the classic 50s pickup has A5 magnets, and more than likely a brighter or shriller tone, would it be better in the middle or neck position?

    So what. We buy used guitars all the time. This is NOS. Mine has a 2014 serial number. It really doesn't matter. It's still a great guitar for the money.
