Actually the NGD dates to 2nd April, I've been the first to purchase one here in Brighton. Icluded in the case are: a strap, a cable for the amp, certificate, the set of circled mirrors to be applied, instructions and layout for applying the mirrors, a pouch with care and special instructions for this model. It's a 1959 Telecaster, it's heavy, Jimmy Page oval C neck profile not thin as a 60's. Feels geat a profile I appreciate much. Bridge is top-loaded, setup perfect I just had to retune it, action is a bit high as I like it especially on a Tele. I like it. I was missing a Tele and thought of a Ron Kirn, but considered the cost of ship and customs this has been cheaper(after all) and it's what I wanted, a '59. (May '59 Fender introduced Slab RW fingerboard, that's what I was looking to have) Sorry for low quality picture.
