    Oh, that's easy: the pickguard is missing!

    Creamsicle! That redwood top is out of this world. No one *needs* a guitar like that, but who wouldn't *want* it?

    I have a G&L ASAT with an ebony and really like it. Add that (and SS frets) to the list of things Fender should offer on some production guitars!

    I don't like Telecasters without pick guards. It may not bother you now, but sooner or later, it will.

    Sorry, that's lame, but that's the best I can do...

    Joining the chorus, it's awful purdy, but it needs a pick guard, maybe parchment.

    Because you could have a Red Rocket atomic 6 made to order for you and still save 1,000 bones?

    Waste of money...

    That bridge alone would stop me from buying it. I personally hate the feel and look of modern tele bridges.

    Because redwood is great for decks but not for guitars???

    I mean who ever heard of putting Thompson's Water Seal on a Tele right?

    Bridge, no pickguard, control plate. This is why I wouldn't buy it. That and 3000 dollars for a tele is dumb.
