…………..the neck is so ORANGE!!! I love the Classic Series line and have a wonderful white blonde 08 Esquire. Regret not picking up a particular 50's Tele I saw a few years ago. So....I came across a new 50's Classic Tele at a very good price - $200 under MAP for non- lacquer model. It is 2TSB with nicely matched body, and is a nice weight (I'd estimate around 7.5 lbs). I am soooo tempted to buy it - especially since the line has been replaced by the Vintera models. However, the neck is extremely orange color. Are all the recent ones like this? I didn't notice if the tag said it was a lacquer model, but the orange neck was the same overdone orange color as on Classic Series Jags I've seen. Maybe this Tele is a lacquer model. I am still thinking about it, but not sure if I can get past that orange neck!
