Did Fender ever produce a black Nashville tele with a maple board made in Mexico?
I have a blackout tele that has three pickups, but the middle is a chrome covered "tele neck" pickup and a maple board. It wouldn't take much to convert it to a Nashville.
Hope that helps.
Not that I know of. The only ones I've seen are CAR, BSB, and Sunburst. That's for the recently discontinued Deluxe series that was around for over 10 years.
For the new Nashvilles, with the Noiseless Pickups, it looks like they discontinued the BSB color and replaced it with White Blonde and Daphne Blue. The CAR was replaced with Fiesta Red, but Sunburst is still available.
If you want a black Nashville with a maple board, I recommend you grab a Triple Tele while you still can.
They had a nashville power tele that came out in black. It's got an acoustic function in it as well as the 3 pickups. Fishman bridge if I remember correctly.
Black was one of the original colors.
There was one with maple board on Reverb a while back https://reverb.com/item/1249473-fender-deluxe-nashville-telecaster-black
A little more thorough investigating revealed a modded squier....unfortunately it will not be NGD for me
A fair number of Teles come from the factory routed for a middle pickup, so you could purchase one with a black finish and a maple neck. Then add the extra middle pickup and a rewire with a five way switch. The Little Guy mentions a Blackout model that already has three pickups and wiring to support them. Just swap out the middle pickup for a Strat pickup and you're good to go.
The original Nashville Teles came with a 1.685" neck width, while the newer versions and many other MIM Teles come with a 1.650" neck width at the nut. If that's not an issue you have a fair number of choices available to you.
FWIW, my favorite Nashville "ish" configuration has a standard Tele bridge pickup, a Strat middle pickup and a P-90 at the neck. The P-90 needs to be underwound or it will overwhelm the other two pickups. Use the Nashville B-Bander wiring scheme and you have a really versatile guitar.
How about the new Nashvilles? Nice colors, I like the Vintage Noiseless pickups on mine.
"Use the Nashville B-Bander wiring scheme and you have a really versatile guitar."
What does that offer?
2. Bridge & Middle
3. Bridge & Neck
4. Neck & Middle
You lose the middle only selection, but gain the classic bridge/neck selection in position 3.
