Just buy one already.
Wonder if or when they'll sell out? Who cares if it's old stock, it's cheaper than used.
Has anyone ordered since late Friday and received a shipping confirmation? Adoramas customer service is closed until tomorrow and I assume that means orders are still in "process" and haven't shipped.
I ordered mine last night at 7:30pm and got a UPS tracking number today by 12:30pm
Ordered mine yesterday at 10:00AM Pacific Time and received tracking at 9:30AM today. I cant't believe that I may actually receive it before Christmas, but I'm not holding my breath on that one and don't mind at all, for the price. Less $$$ than a new Classic Vibe, better/more pups AND with a genuine Fender logo! How can one go wrong? It will be fun to find out how many of these actually got produced. If the playability and usability is even close to hoe great the price is, these may well become kinda collectible items, IE: Fetch a good price on the like new/used market. Of course, if it's a great player, it will hard to give it up for a measly few hundred bucks profit! Mine will get a real case. Too bad that MF just closed their sale on OK black cases for $39!
No bubble burst here... I knew they were no longer produced.
What year(s) wee these made? All the pics I have seen are 2014 dated.
I "assume" these were a fairly low production run since they are an unusual pickup configuration.
Looking at what you get for $379 you can't loose, the neck and pickups are worth more than the sale price.
new Fender classic series neck $200 + (stratoshere selling for $289 to $329)
3 Nocaster bridge pickups at $69 each
Alder body (stratoshere selling for $169)
Deluxe gig bag $30
Control plate, switches, pots, jack and pickguard $30 to $40
Lucky Statosphere didn't grab them all up for parts sales...
This is near as good a deal as I got on a MIM Standard for $299.00 [MF], guitar was a 2008 IIRC. The necks had got to some meatiness by then as well.
But then again, with inflation form 2008-9 added into 299.00...
I already have a set of Wilkinson compensated brass saddles on the way for $11.50 that should be here the same day as the guitar and I have 6 sets of Dunlop strap locks that I bought when MF was letting them go for like $9 a set.
Oddly enough, this will be my very first "New Guitar" purchase since my first real guitar in '72, which was a black Telecaster Custom that just didn't quite do it for me, at the time, when I compared it to the SG's and Les Pauls that I ended up playing, exclusively for the ensuing 40 years!
I suspect my Tweed Deluxe is gonna love me for this purchase and hopefully I'll be givin' that lovin' back!
Which other telecasters have CS Nocaster pickups stock?
I ordered mine yesterday afternoon, my card was charged last night, and I received a tracking number today.
Damn! I didn't need another guitar but I had to buy one of these ..... just too good to pass up. Ordered today.
I understand. That was my initial reaction too.
According to the UPS website, I'll have mine on the 27th. If a bunch of us ordered around the same time I imagine we'll be crashing the site with all the posts and pictures we'll be sharing.

It would be nice to know if somebody sells a Tele bridge pickup that is RWRP to the Nocaster pickups. The only way that I can insure that I have a RWRP middle pickup is to have a set wound to my specs.
Maybe a reverse wound strat pick up would work?
That's not necessarily the case. A member here and at the Strat Talk forums provided instructions on how to magnetically reverse the poles on pickups and then simply reverse the positive and negative leads/wires. You need one of these, to test your polarity:
And best to have a pair of these for doing the polarity flipping:
Let me know if interested in the procedure.
Just My $.02,
Someone in the UK made a custom pick guard.
