With all of the excitement for NAMM and for the newly announced Fender 70th Anniversary Broadcaster, I think that this little announcement from Chicago Music Exchange (CME) seems to have slipped under the radar. It sounds like CME is releasing a CME Exclusive Fender American Original '50s Telecaster. And, perhaps most excitingly, their touting a 'thin lacquer' finish! Edit - just found the link on the CME website and can confirm that it has a Roasted Maple Neck too! https://www.chicagomusicexchange.co...de-wroasted-maple-neck-cme-exclusive/29918751 Listed for $1,974.99 USD "This Fender American Original '50s Telecaster features a CME Exclusive "Thin Lacquer" Blackguard Blonde finish and Roasted Maple Neck!" Honestly, for my tastes, I'm more excited about this release than the Broadcaster announcement (due to a personal preference for 9.5" radius fingerboards).
