Yes you do. And one in black. It’s one of the rules.
BLACK is the cure for the dreaded Sunburst virus infecting instruments and consumers everywhere.Well beyond the tastelessness of Racoco's curve on curve on curve on curve swirling ,been there, done that nausea inducing repetition
I have a very nice made in Mexico Telecaster that has volunteered to be modified, and have a tummy tuck relief carved into the back of the instrument and an elbow relief carved into the front.
I chose this particular guitar because it bore the stench of a sunburst finish
I will be semi-gloss black with a black pickguard when completed.

Go for it! I have one and it's tied for #1 in my stable. Tied with the American original 60s tele.

Is semi-gloss the same as semi-matt, viewed from the other direction?

Well, I have a Fender Telecaster Deluxe in Mocha brown (my avatar). I will definitely not try to stop you to buy a Custom in Mocha brown 😉

Is that a Vintera? I had the Tele Deluxe, beautiful guitar, built like a tank and sounded good, but didn’t get on with the neck. Changed it for an American Performer Tele, which plays like butter but sounds horrible! I want a Thinline now…🤔

Now I need one. Have to sell one or two of my herd, but it's a done deal.
No more fence sitting for me. Doing it.

When I buy a tele to put an Artec humbucker at the bridge and take the screening chrome cap off the neck pup to wake it up... a nice combination to my ear.

Or a lovely/horrible antigua, depending on your taste.

I REALLY DON’T NEED ANOTHER TELECASTER
(a poem for ping-ping-clicka)

I really don’t need another Telecaster
or another guitar, but
temptation is the ringmaster
and I’m in a bit of a rut

This one is a fabulous Custom
according to my sales guy
and I implicitly trust him
I have known him since he was knee-high

To a grasshopper you see
and I trust him with my money
So come on home with me,
my gorgeous Fender honey

The neck is just like butter
and it sustains like forever
My heart is all a flutter
and there’s no fear whatsoever

That I’ll ever want to sell it
This one is a keeper
No way I’ll farewell it
Hey, be careful with that carpet sweeper

You just might knock it over
I told you before, Guinevere
When I’m playing Crimson And Clover
Just stay the hell out of here

Can’t get good help, I swear
Doesn’t the maid know who’s the master?
The butler too, and the au pair
don’t think I need another Telecaster

They are just jealous I think
of my hat and my smiling opossum
They want to send me to a shrink
before my obsession starts to blossom

into a full blown addiction
Is buying another guitar really a disaster?
So here is my prediction
I really might need another Telecaster


😙
