    There’s orange. And then there’s orange sparkle.

    Super cool.

    Ha! Awesome man. Yeah, a new maple neck is great. I got a '52 AVRI Butterscotch Blonde with a roasted maple neck, it really sings and it sounds perfect. It came with 6105 modern narrow and tall fret size, and the tallness of the frets (.055") has disappointed me a bit. I didn't realize I would have an aversion to the tall frets but for sure I do; however, I have some options with my local luthier. Anyway, back to your beauty - I really love the neck specs on your guitar. Maple, C-shape, 7.25, and vintage frets. And then a humbucker in the neck. And then the orange sparkle. And yeah, I've seen that reference before on other sites about the number being produced, thanks for going to Fender and verifying. I just joined this board in early May right before I got the Tele and it's an unbelievable resource, great knowledge out there and a bunch of people willing to help.

    So my Tele has inspired me to learn a whole bunch of country licks, tunes, drills, chicken pickin, it's a blast. I don't normally listen to country music, but playing it is more fun than I ever thought. Enjoy the guitar, and I'll keep you posted if I get one of her twins! LOL.

    Love that orange sparkle! I had my eye on one of those, pretty short factory special run I think.

    Yeah, I actually asked Fender and they claim to have only made "approximately 190" of them.
