Beautiful guitar. Not flash, which would, to me, go against the Tele ethos, just quality, quietly understated. Is it, and this is not meant to be disparaging, a partcaster using new Fender components fine tuned and assembled by Dave?Really impressed. 7.2lbs, ash body, nice dark slab rosewood neck (very comfy). I don't mind the custom shop Texas Specials but may swap them eventually. This guitar rings loudly and you can feel the vibrations all thru the body. The threaded steel saddles are cool, no intonation issues and the dark fretboard dots look nice too. Fret size is perfect, they spec'd this guitar nicely.
