    I have been enjoying mine for the last 6 months or so.
    My first Tele, and first real Fender.

    Mine is MZ7205496 which is a bit strange when I think about it because I had to wait a couple of month due to shortage.

    Once the shop got a new batch, I immediately went to get one.
    There are two things I'm not too happy with. First the bridge was clearly misaligned so I had to correct the angle (I'm still wondering how I did without drilling new holes). However there is still some mismatch between the bridge and the body holes, shifting the strings slightly. I believe this should never happen in the CNC era.
    The other thing is the fret glue which is very apparent on the highest frets.

    Has anyone else got similar problem? Or are these part of the 'vintage specs'?

    Now, I know you should always try several before picking one. But in fact, all of them had similar problem (especially the bridge misalignement). I was looking at the MIK light ash Tele the other day and everything was well put. So I guess it is specific to MIM.

    Don't take me wrong, I love my baja. The reason I'm keeping is because it's really light (7 lbs or maybe less), and I have really re-discover the joy of playing electric guitar now.

    Instead of glue - could it just be poly overspray?

    Hey, I've seen a lot of you have blackguarded the desert sand, but has anyone put a white/parchment pickguard on the vintage blonde? Or has anyone seen a picture of it?

    I'm wondering if it would look sort of like this (sans wear) or if the finish is more yellow?

    my baja seems a touch more yellow than that. Still, I'm looking for a 5 hole white PG.

    This is mine.
    Sounds less polite now sans the twisted neck pup. Found that one to Strat sounding.
    Bridge pup: Lundgren Vintage 7.5 K.

    Just wondering if any of you guys who have converted your Baja to conventional 3 way switching notice any difference in how the pickups sound? Does it make the neck pickup less 'Stratty'?

    Hi there Ben,
    I listened to your "unreleased record" on your homepage.
    I love those Fender sounds you´re producing, both clean and dirty!
    Just great music I guess.
    Thanks,

    Lasse in Sweden

    9.26lbs twanger with sustain like a Les Paul. ;)


    @gatc, have you checked the bridge screws? I have a twisted bridge screw, someday I will replace it, the routes through the body perfectly fit to the bridge but this "$§§"$"§%!! screw doesn't. :mad:

    Are you still looking for a 5 hole white pickgaurd? I have one and I'm looking for a 5 hole black pickgaurd.
