    Just unboxed it and I’ll check it out more after dinner. I was a little concerned the color wouldn’t suit me but it’s more than fine...looks like something straight out of the 50s. I have a couple different pick guards on the way, probably end up with white pearloid.

    I bought it as used from Pro Audio Star despite some pretty scathing reviews but it’s not used, it’s brand spankin’ new. They shipped fast and I got a great deal. Hope to put it to work this weekend.

    Great pic, congrats. It's perfect. I believe this has the nice chunky U shaped neck, I bet it plays nicely.

    I just got the same one a couple months ago. I LOVE IT.
    Swapped out the pickguard for a cream colored one from stratosphere and installed compensated saddles. Such a great guitar.

    it was Pro Audio Star that had the bad reviews...I don’t think I’ve read a really bad review of these guitars.

    they nailed some of the colors in the new vintera series. all of the sonic blues have come out really nice. and the 70s transparent orange / butterscotch looking 70s strat looked neat too.

    That colour is amazing. I would leave the white guard on. It will go nicely cream coloured in time.

    That is one of the prettiest teles Fender has ever made.

    What is the Vintera series?
    Is it comparable to the former Classic Mex series?

    I was also a bit concerned when I got my Daphne Blue Modified 50's... just switched the black guard to white, and I love it!

    Big congrats! Now go play the heck out of that guitar! :)
