    My brother had a tc 90. He loved it. I liked the sound it had and the upper reach was like a 335.

    For what? If you're the kind of person who needs to be able to play every single note up to the last fret, including the notes on the E & A strings, you're probably not the kind of person who'd be playing a Tele anyway.

    Hate it, Hate it, Hate it! I've never liked any attempt to DC a Tele body. It just looks wrong! NO, NO, NO!

    Love it!!

    If it only had 1 more cut on the back it would have its own built in stand. Would be very uncomfortable to play though...but maybe a hinged 5th cut out...OoooooH Yeah!!

    not sure what this means but I have no problem hitting every note
    on a regular tele.

    there is no reason for a double cut tele other than to be different for different's sake, which is never a good reason to be different. (unless one likes to be different)

    Not a fan, but hey, it is a one-off, not like it is the new American Standard.

    Wonder how all the 10 for 15's are selling. The hardtail strat seemed to zoom out of stores. Don't know about any of the others.

    I don't think so - remember, Leo was responsible for this:

    Nah, if Henry J was calling the shots at Fender this would be the replacement for the American Standard Tele, it would have the Tronical tuners standard, and one month later they would introduce a "Custom Shop '14 Style American Tele" that listed for $3,600.

    I'd buy the guitar if it wasn't so overpriced.

    I'd buy it if it had P-90's as an option

    I will be watching for them to be blown out at some point in time

    I was considering the blackout strat, but it seems that was sold out long before it reached Europe.

    I loved it enough to snag one at GC in OKC.

    I think they did a great job with it... The one I have sounds stellar. Really great action, great tone. The twisted Tele pickups sound awesome, really full Tele tone. The cutaway certainly didn't take that away! Notes jump out of the fretboard on all pickup positions.

    It's got the rounded neck heel and cutaway on the back, really comfy to play. Mine's 7 lbs.

    They honored the 15% coupon, so That knocked a couple hundred off the price.

    I had to look past the traditionalist mindset, but after that, I see a great sounding, great playing axe that mixes it up. I know looks are subjective, but I really like it.

    If you ignore the 2 added cuts at the back, the scratchplate on this one looks much better on the double cut than the slightly reduced standard one they are actually using. The TC90 also looks much better with the P90's and thinline setup, the new double cut Tele just looks all wrong.
