    I gotta say, those look mighty nice. Squire doesn't even show them on their website yet!

    The 21 fret glossy finish neck and the shiny gold logo are characteristics common with the VM SH/SSH and that haven't been on any other recent production Squier Standard Teles. The VM SH/SSH model is crafted in India.

    I wonder if this is a Sam Ash Special Run? Sam Ash did that for a maple fretboard, color coordinated headstock Fat Tele model, starting in 2000 and continuing for a few years.

    I don't think its a special Sam Ash run, as I heard about these a few weeks ago from someone on a Squier forum from Australia saying he knew someone who worked at a music store and was told about these by the Fender rep. At the time I thought they might just be an 'overseas only' series, like the California Series that pop up on eBay every now and then, so I didn't say anything about it until I knew it was not an overseas only series.

    Wow! That's a sweet looking Telecaster.

    If I hadn't just bought a new Tele, one of these would be on the way ASAP.

    One of you needs to buy one so that I can read a report on it. I really have a thing for Squier Teles and this one looks like a real winner with its Alnico III pickups, pine body and 50's-style hardware.

    Thanks for the link,

    Ive been looking for a good 50's Classic or 60's Classic used but I think I'll just get one of these instead.

    What a killer deal!

    I predict this will be the biggest selling Squier of all time.

    If a 50's Classic is a poor mans 52ri then this is a broke mans 50's Classic.

    I totally agree and would add that this could also be the basis for a million partscasters. I don't need one but am sure as heck going to get one.

    Fender could have made one of these long ago.

    Just shows how out of touch Fender marketing is with what the public wants.

    Seems like all the cool stuff is MIM MIJ/CIJ or Squier.

    Fender USA hasnt made anything Ive wanted in years!

    I keep staring ...

    at the pic harder and harder to see if there's grain showing through. Maybe. Sure looks great! If it plays as well as the two Squier's I've got, it would make an excellent gigging guitar.
