    This is my 6th tele. I have 4 right now unfortunately I sold 2 of them in the past like an idiot. I like this one better than the American standard I had. Always had maple boards though. What do you guys that love rosewood use to treat fret boards?

    My #1

    Such a great bang for the buck and the rosewood board is killer

    For a "cherry" guitar, it sure looks white.

    I was on the fence between the Classic 50s and Classic 60s... in the end I went with the 50s - but now I’m thinking a 60s would make a nice stable mate. HNGD, Natalie is a real beauty!

    Great choice. The Classic series guitars are great value workhorses.

    Clarinet bore oil. A little goes a long way.

    I think your right. I've wanted a 50s style tele for a while. I've got a 72 reissue and now the 60s. The 50s tele will be my next conquest hopefully. I have been hunting for a telecaster custom for a while too though. They make too many of these things! Lol

    The Olympic white really jumps out at you too. This guitar is sitting on the rack with my other 4 fenders and it's the only one you see.

    Gorgeous, really want to save for one BECAUSE of the 7.25 radius.
    My 2012 Antigua is the same but, its a closet queen..

    There's also an ongoing tonal debate if it matters if the pickups are mounted to the body or the pickguard.

    I'm thinking about getting one, but also think the Baja 60's might be better...

    I like the Baja too. No complaints about this one though. I'm not a fan of rosewood honestly but something about this particular guitar just spoke to me. The only difference between this and the Baja 60s is the 4 way switch and the s1 volume pot I believe.

    I recently acquired a 2016 MIJ Classic 60's Tele, I'm not sure if the pickups are the same as yours, they are described as "Vintage Style Single-Coil Tele"

    The neck is ok but the bridge is a bit un-exciting/thin.

    Congrats! I have a Classic 50s in black. Would love the 50s model in white as well.

    Really nice guitars!
