CS variations look nice, but what has happened to the neck pickup shell?......certainly looks as though it has been well worn.....or
[the attack of the angle grinder?....or some horrid parallax error in the photography?
Are the new CS shells brass? or a ferrous metal?.....difficult to see any metal color under the wear/worn section
Nice! My 63 is my favorite Tele. Neck and action are near perfect. Enjoy!I didn't go searching for a 63 Reissue specifically, or even a Custom Shop. I wanted to upgrade my American Special Tele, and the shop had a Jimmy Page Mirror (non-CS) that had caught my eye. When I got there it didn't click with me, so I tried out some others and for some reason this one just felt right. I wasn't in love with the relic level, but it has really grown on me, and I think the worn down shoulder actually makes it more comfortable. I actually traded with a friend for a month or so for another CS (a '69 in firemist silver). It didn't feel the same and we switched back - super happy to have this one back. 2017 LPB Relic

After I got it home and inspected the floor traveler I actually found my birthday on it. Can anyone shed some light on the two different dates listed under "Requested Delivery Date"? I've seen two dates on all of the floor travelers I've looked at.
