    I don't usually do this when I acquire another guitar, but this one is actually a Telecaster. It's a 2015 Mexican FSR. Picked it up locally, and you have look pretty hard to find any signs of use. Got what I think was a pretty dang fair deal on it, and was going to flip it, but thinking now I'll keep it.

    I have the 2018 cherry sunburst version of that one. I believe its Ash.

    They are nice guitars.

    This one is ash as well. I thought it was going to be too heavy, but it's not.

    That’s gotta be the third BSB NGD posted this week, I think. I love the way the ash grain pops through on yours. Congrats!

    Congrats! I almost got one back in 2013 when they were on sale for 399 or something like that... I decided for a Squier CV instead, not a bad choice but in retrospective I should have bought the Fender.

    Did it some with the 'reversed' control plate? Do you prefer it that way?

    Yeah, they make this model that way. Not sure how I like it yet, just got it yesterday. So far so good. Might be a problem with it if it turns out I like it, because I'll have to reverse my other Teles. ;)
