    catchy title, but will the kids dance to it?

    I’m saving for my next telecaster purchase, and can’t seem to find info on which of Fender’s line will have nitrocellulose lacquer.

    Would anyone be so kind as to point me towards a reference or link? I’d sure appreciate it!

    If you go to Fender's website, they should tell you in the tech specs if not in the actual description of the item itself. Otherwise, I'd give em a ring and ask their CS's and/or tech department.

    Hopefully AVRIs will be back when we are ready to buy.

    I've read that even when new Fenders are claimed to be finished with nitro, there's an undercoat which is poly. Don't know how true that is, but knowing Fender, I wouldn't put it pass them. If you're that adamant about nitro, maybe you should build a partscaster and find someone who can finish for you in nitro?
