    Well.. this is a little unexpected as I had my eyes on a new Gretsch.

    After a very dull sequence of poor customer service, from various outlets, the plan changed and I ended up with this 2019 Custom Shop Journeyman Relic in Fiesta Red.

    A dream come true and what an instrument. I'd been out of the Tele' action for about 20 years until December..and I now have 3!

    And the funky neck-plate/joint. What do the specs say on the floor traveler? Never seen that configuration before....

    That's maybe the first Fiesta Red guitar I've ever really liked. I'm more of a Dakota Red man myself, but this is a stunner!

    B E A utiful. I'm usually not a fan of binding on Fenders but the Two tone body looks GREAT with binding. Stunning guitar. Congrats!
