    So true. It's a good thing those pale and dry pau ferro fretboards can be saved with some stain/wax though. I actually think most rosewood is a lot lighter than we're used to, don't they stain it at the the factory in some way or another?

    Also, is it just me, or is there a major shortage of black+rosewood/pf telecasters in Fender's current catalogue??

    My 1976 Telecaster & original case. All original, apart from pots. Not the best of pics.

    That's gorgeous! The whole thing that kicked off this thread for me was seeing a Bonneville Tele in Nashville that looked very much like that one, but thinline:

    Here's a bullet I had kicking around for a while. It's crazy what you can get for cheap with squiers... I think it might have been laurel but it was as dark as some rosewood.

    I have pics of this with a black pg too, but the imgur app sucks for finding images.

    Here ya go, my 2012 Tele Thinline Super Deluxe. The rosewood is very dark, I believe it was stained or painted from the factory as there are tiny slivers in some spots of the fretboard that show a much lighter rosewood colour.
