    Not a fan of the bridge and saddles. I do dig the RW neck.

    Amen to that. Surf Green is the best, and with a rosewood neck? Looks like mint chocolate chip ice cream.....good enough to eat.

    Damn this forum. Just gassed me right into a purchase. Used the 15% coupon from GC. The minute I held it, I knew I had to have it. How do I hide a surf green tele from my wife?:eek:

    Btw, I only have the channel bound as a reference, but it seems much darker in sound. I like that a lot, like a lot a lot.

    Feels nice, but not as smooth a the channel bound, now that's butter. I don't know about the rest of them, but mine is my lightest tele now.

    Well, just oredered one as well. Gonna have to wait, as they're back ordered now, but got a set of Thomastik Infeld flatwounds on the way to install when I get it set up.
    Can't wait...

    Don't like the headstock. Don't like the neck. They're too dark. I probably won't like the price.

    They look so nice. I don't need one at all but it sure is tempting

    Actually you better get a paint brush or roller to make it really believable

    The surf green is just super cool. I like maple necked Fenders tho. The one exception would be the channel bound ones. Just me.
