    Lots of info on specs, but I was wondering how these sound? A maple top and swamp ash body would seem bright. How does it compare to the usual swamp ash body / maple neck teles?

    They tend to be a bit brighter than say a Blackguard, but most all modern Teles do. Especially since many newer Tele have 1 meg pots (most older Tele have 250K pots). These 40th Anniversary Telecasters are top notch and sound wonderful. I love mine red one.

    My guess is the closest thing that Fender makes at an affordable price might be their Fender Select Telecaster other than a Custom Shop Tele.

    Lately the prices on eBay for these 40th Anniversary are running quite high. Will be interesting to see if this one sells.

    I have never seen one except on a 40th Anniversary, but would also love to find one for another build I am thinking of were it would fit nicely.

    Fender refers to the pick guard for the Custom Shop 40th Anniversary, on their spec sheet as "Grained Ivoroid". And it does have a texture to it.

    I've never seen on that has not been installed on a Fender Custom Shop 40th Telecaster or Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt Telecaster...
