    The guts:
    Like I said, no surprises here.
    It was nice to see that this is routed for a Humbucker. I'm not sure if that's standard for an American Pro? Anyone know?
    But it works out because that's a planned future mod.

    Beautiful guitar. If I get another guitar that's the one. Just beautiful. The nice hardware.

    I'd swap out the pickguard and throw some ovs in there and be in heaven. Best color combo for a tele all day.

    Congrats, just a great example of modern Fender guitar production. Play it in good health.

    It's kind of cool that the neck pickup already has the additional wire on it so if you wanted to throw in a 4 way switch, that's one less step you'll have to do.

    I have that exact same guitar. Simple, versatile, elegant. Bonded with it instantly.

    Original vintage pickups. Love them. Fender. Sweetwater has them I believe. 50s design. Hot and loud.

    Why is a truck assumed to be a ‘him’? I’ve seen some very nice lady trucks around. That’s sexist, that is.

    Waiting on Brown truck tuff. Heaven when it comes bearing one of them thangs with six strings.
