That's a nice one; congrats!! The 75th Anniversary models are really pretty; love the gold hardware on that sunburst shade.

Your American Deluxe QMT has a great top; those could vary from really nice like yours to not all that figured. By the way it's not a 60th Anniversary model; every Fender made in 2006 got that 60th Anniversary medallion on the back of the headstock.
Gotcha. Thanks

Had a Nashville Deluxe some time ago and didn't get on with it. Found it too bright. Sold it figuring all Tele's are basically country twangers. Didn't like the Strat-style saddles either. Seemed out of place on a Telecaster. That's it below. Pretty guitar.

Then I dipped my toes into the Tele waters a year ago with a dual humbucker model. Also not a proper Tele in the strictest sense of the word. I still have this and it's a 60th anniversary model that I really like.

Lately I've been wondering what I've been missing in not having a regular ol' Telecaster. Been watching lots of "That Pedal Show" and admiring the tones Dan gets from his two Tele's. Then I saw the 75th anniversary issue and decided I had to give Tele's one more try. Am I ever glad I did. This thing rocks. I don't know if it's the Custom Shop Twisted Tele pickups that make the difference but it's gnarly, mean and can rip your head off. Sounds fantastic with Blues, Rock, Hard Rock and even metal. Those two pickups are really versatile. The only thing I don't like so much is the Deep C neck. I prefer a normal C as this one is quite large and not as comfortable. Here she is.

I bought that same guitar (shown in my Avatar). I'm still trying to get used to the bridge pickup. Pretty powerful. With the two pickups together it sounds wonderful though.

Hey nice, i thought the one in your avatar had binding. Now I see it’s the lighting. I lowered the bridge pickup on mine a little bit. The middle position does sound nice. Better than any middle position in any of my other guitars.
