    Hey y'all -

    I have been gassing for awhile for Tele's and broke down for the unofficial ultimate Tele (short of an actual vintage), a CS Nocaster. Totally dig the tone and the neck, although the size was quite surprising. Came with all the case candy, but the spec sheet is elusive, so I am not sure what pickups are in it (or if they have been replaced). The saddles were replaced with brass compensated versions (originals included). A light guitar, just a shade over 7 lbs.

    I got off reverb from Chicago Music Exchange, hence the 'stock' but actual photos.

    Love the forum and info on TDPRI. I have been lurking for years, PM'd a few members, but first public post. Thanks for lettin' me brag a bit.

    You just got the best their is, congratulations.
    A shop floor traveller sheet should be available from fender which will give you the specs of pickups etc. I had to send a photo of the guitar when I requested mine.

    Thanks everyone... I gave it a good running this AM with headphones as the fam was still asleep. Once they leave for groceries, I will be taking through its paces it via a 5E3 build. I will get some better pictures after I find the will to get the camera and upload. Thanks for reaffirming my decision. Still smiling from the tone I get from it...

    I have the same guitar. It's fantastic. If it's stock it has twisted tele set - both neck and bridge.
