    Beautiful. Those A5 pickups (especially the neck) are really cool.

    I think it looks great as is. If you change the pickguard to black, that's all right but please promise us you won't repaint that blonde body. That's just one of the nicest of that type/year I have seen.

    A great score congratulations. I like how your neck pup is measuring nice and healthy on the high end of the range for MV's.

    The MV's pups have alnico 3 magnets however, not alnico 5.

    Interesting, that honey blonde finish is absolutely identical to my new Nashville Tele white blonde finish. Guess they rename the finishes now and then?

    Yes, this is weird.

    Claudio's guitar is probably more yellow than your guitar.

    Meanwhile I have four of the previous style of Deluxe Nashville Tele in what they called "Honey Blonde" and none of my four are in a color as pretty as either of the guitars you guys have.

    Awesome. I just got one exactly like this yesterday via GC. I was worried that the original blonde with “white” was really white but it is definitely more “yellowed white” as you say. The bridge pup has white-ish wrapping so I’m hoping it’s all original. I’m going to open her up tomorrow and take a look under the hood. Mine is 9.3lbs - is that normal?

    Thank you and compliment for your acquisition! Put your pics please on https://www.tdpri.com/threads/8502-american-ash-telecaster-club.181982/page-68 if you wish!
    Mine's weight is 3.9 kilograms, (8,59 lbs more or less) so it is normal!
