    Hello Anthony, welcome to TDPRI.
    Congrats on the Tele, looks good. I prefer to be the creator of road wear on my guitars, but yours has just the right amount applied. Enjoy it.

    My experience was the opposite - sold the super yellow heavy body, kept the killer chunky, soft V neck and put together a killer MJT Thinline finished in a see-through, blonde 'Mary Kaye' finish. Mine is/was an '08 that I bought for cost in mid-'09. Broke even on the body swap.

    I sorta suspect that my RW was either used or modified by the store's tech - the only evidence I have of this is that the bridge pickup looked very different (and sounded terrible) than every other RW Tele I'd seen around that time period.
