    Quick question, does the grain show through on this color option or is it just that solid white?

    I have this one too, 'cept a maple neck. There's no grain showing through at all and it's more of a cream/pearl colour than a straight white. I love it!

    Back in....this will be the 3rd AmDlx Tele I've had but the first with the new features.
    I had an AmDlx strat so I knew I'd love the neck and compound radius. I was not wild about the N3's in the strat but in this Tele they are superb. Just sold a 52 Hot that was very nice
    but I prefer more modern features. This guitar delivers and the nice surprises are that it is lighter and the tone is just as nice. Also the neck pickup is more usable than the mini-bucker in the 52, at least for the playing I do.

    This was a mistake I instantly regretted. Not too much as I got a sweet Martin in trade but this was the nicest Tele I ever played. It's a '99 American Deluxe in a three colour sunburst:

    I swore I would save up and get another. They don't seem too common over here in the UK. Anyway, I was luck that my eye wasn't turned during my saving up period but I bit the bullet and saved. Recently, one became available and in a finish I adored. By jingo I got it and now it's place is securely in the man-cave along with my Cab, Strat, LP and Martin:

    It's another '99 (August to be precise) in natural Ash with tortoise shell binding and Kinman AVN-60 pups. Plays as well if not better than the burst and you will have to pry this from my cold, dead fingers!

    Are there two competing Am Deluxe clubs? Well, I choose this one...

    A couple of weeks back I got my 2014 American Deluxe Tele, aged cherry burst, maple neck. I traded in my Strat as part of the deal.

    After having the Tele for a couple of days, I went back to the store, since i felt the string buzz was worse than acceptable. Apparently there was something wrong with the neck. I didn't get any more info than that, but I suspect a small dark spot that I noticed on the fretboard might have something to do with it... wood knot perhaps. Since the shipping time for a replacement neck is so long, I will now get a new guitar instead. Which is nice I guess, but it also makes you wonder about Fender's quality control...?

    Anyway, now I'm waiting for my new guitar. In the meantime I'm playing my Fender Jaguar Special HH, which I like for the looks but not really for the sound.

    My new baby. Fell in love with this model the first time I saw one. Actually did the Wayne's World thing, "It will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine."

    Now it is, and all is well with the world.
