    Yes, I am a bonehead and sold my last Tele. Oh well, proceeds go toward this '51 Nocaster. And yes, I am a poser (I love relics done right). I especially love the weather checking on this one. I had one of these also several years ago and sold it to fund a boutique. Big mistake.

    The fat neck Nocaster has always been my favorite Tele and the Twisted Tele pickups have always been my favorite sound. I swear to myself GAS will never make me do dumb things again......

    Wildwood has some great Black Friday deals!

    Congrats! I've been eyeing these for sometime now. Wanting to replace my 51 Nocaster Time Machine that I recently sold.

    Was this one marked down on their site? How did you get the Black Friday deal...don't see anything on their site.

    No the site does not show any discounts. You just have to call and ask. Larger discounts on guitars they have had in inventory the longest. So it will vary depending on what you want.

    I love Wildwood. Always the best deals. Among the best as far as inventory. The really do a professional setup before the guitar ships. Free three day shipping.

    Good Luck!

    Thanks, I have a couple of "new shiny's" and a couple of light relics. I love them all but lean towards the relics.

    Thanks! I agree...both guitars in my avatar were from Wildwood. Also just got the email from them.

    Enjoy...that's a perfect blackguard in my opinion!

    Beautiful! Congrats.

    I lusted after a WW10 52 Relic years ago. It didn’t have fat 52 neck but a slim mid 60s C which I prefer. I still kick myself for not pulling the trigger on it.

    That's pretty much my dream Tele. Congrats. I love the broken-in, closet classic-type feel.

    Tasty choice you made!
    I do not find light relics like this one are for posers, it’s really more about the worn in feel and the taste for a nice looking patina. When you play such an instrument on stage, no one can really see it’s relic’d from the distance anyway.
    Not that caring about the look is a problem though!

    Some where my lead player, if he's seeing your Tele, is probably having a cardiac infarction. Purty geetar!

    Sorry to be the bearer of potentially expensive news, but they currently have a Nocaster with a C:

    I’m good.
    Wrong C! That’s a 59 C, not the thinner mid 60s.

    Congrats! I absolute LOVE the U necks. The slotted neck screws always crack me up... removing the neck would stress me out.
