I was in my local GC yesterday buying one of the LE Surf Green Rosewood Neck Teles (gratuitous unboxing, and post-setup shots below), and I accidentally saw a newer version of the LE Tele that I cant find anywhere on the web. The website showed them having one of the version I was looking for in-stock, but it wasn’t on the wall anywhere. They were really busy, and the dude I was working with asked me if I could check the stack of boxes they had out on the floor while he took care of another customer real quick- so I did. I found a box label with some combination of Limited Edition American Professional Telecaster Rosewood Neck..., so I cracked it open. It was not at all what I was looking for- but someone will probably think it was cool. It was an American Professional solid-rosewood necked Deluxe Telecaster with the four knobs, funky pickguard with relocated selector switch, and two humbuckers. The pickups look like WRHB, but I gather online that they’re repackaged Shaw-Buckers. I probably should have taken pics, but I didn’t realize there wasn’t anything online about it yet. I’m guessing they’re holding it back for an upcoming circular. But, just imagine an American Professional Deuxe Tele, in champagne (blech!), with an all-Rosewood neck, and you’re there. Fortunately, when dude got back to me, he checked the warehouse and they had one left of the one I came in for in-stock, so I got to crack the box on that one, too. I’ve played 6 or 7 of these things over the last couple months, just window shopping, and I would have bought any one of them. It seems like they’re pretty consistent with the American Professional line- taking what I’ve seen over the past couple months, I wouldn’t have any issue with ordering one online.
