    purchased = Olympic White American Special Tele.

    Brought her home today. Put on a set of 11's and plugged in. This guitar is amazing. Sounds like I always wanted my Tele to sound, and I've had several.

    Neck is chunky and the satin finish is great! Custom Shop Texas Specials are bright and spanky and handle gain with clarity.

    I thought, I'd want to replace the saddles, but the intonation is spot on. This might be my last guitar....;)

    That's really nice-looking. Your pictures are better than the ones on Fender's site for showing how it really looks. Enjoy!

    OW is one of my favourite colors, and looks great with almost any pickguard or fretboard. Awesome!
