    Congratulations to the OP - lovely RW Tele you have there!

    I have one of the Copper ones which I adore. It was a FSR and they did this batch with a 9.5" radius...I'm curious if perhaps the purple batch is the same.

    I would think nitro on copper would wear quite quickly?

    Those are nice guitars. I tried one at GC last year and it was awesome. The neck was to die for, fit like a glove. And I liked the finish, it reminded me of my 67 Tele that I stripped and refinished back in the 70s. Then I found one open box deal on MF. It wasn’t nearly as nice so I returned it. Should’ve bought the one in the store when I had the chance. Congrats!

    Beautiful...always liked copper on any guitar. The radius on mine is vintage, but the frets are bigger. I would actually prefer a smaller fret size, but it still plays great. I like the pickups quite a bit. First time experience with Tex Mex. Glassy they are not. Which is a huge plus for me.

    I have two Road Worns i love.So sad i never saw the copper FSR one for sale.I have never seen a used one either.I watch this stuff like a hawk too.
    Is that a Blackbird pedalboard i see?Are you happy with it?Or did you make it?I have been wanting one of the tweed ones but i know i could make one for next to nothing.If.....i had the time.

    I actually managed to snag my Copper FSR used...had to pounce though.

    The pedalboard is from a company named Maple Rock - they're in Canada and so am I, so it worked out very well and easily. I'm thrilled with it but sadly think the company is no longer in business. I posted a thread which has more info about it here - https://www.tdpri.com/threads/npbd-maple-rock-pedalboards.969688/

    Copper is spectacular as well. And reminds me of Robin Trower's strat.

    I've got one too - great playing guitar - I put Bootstrap Pretzels in it and I think it was an improvement although the stock Fender pickups were just fine!

    Fantastic combination....tele and a Princeton. If I decide to swap pickups it will be bootstraps.

    When I brought the guitar home I put a set of compensated brass saddles on that I had in a draw. I don't really care for the spare set, but I figured hey better than the stock straight steel saddles. I also ordered a set of titanium saddles so my spare set is only temporary. Well just for kicks and giggles, I put the stock saddles back on. I was amazed that not only do they sound better, but it intonated better. Wow....really surprised by that. I may have ordered the titanium set for no reason.

    Looking at the specs, these now have a C profile neck. Is it still fairly chunky?
