    Every time I go back and check there's more options. Who would have ever thought you'd be able to get a Deluxe in Shell Pink with a roasted maple neck without going aftermarket or Custom Shop? And all for well under $2k?

    I haven't gotten one yet but I really think my next big guitar purchase will be from the Mod Shop

    all the cool weird stuff is way more money than i want to spend on a guitar.

    if that tele/jazzmaster was under $400 i'd have been all over it.

    Do I like it?

    Uh, let me just say I am speechless. Maybe I need to see it in person.

    I wish they would offer more pickup options like P90's but good stuff!

    That is pretty slick especially with the roasted neck.

    I’ve been ruined by my Squier Tele Deluxe that I got used for $300. I was thinking about spending $350 for Mojotone Wide Range Humbuckers, 500K pots and all new wiring but it’s fine as is.

    Squier Mod Shop would be cool.

    $1,000 is my ceiling for Fenders.

    Let me know when I can get 7 1/4" radius and vintage frets on anything I want.

    Interesting to see silverburst amongst the finishes! Still a bit rich for my taste though.

    The Mod Shop is a godsend for lefties. Right now Fender has only 3 lefty versions of Tele's and very limited colors too.

    Yes I can see how it is, I have been on their site countless times and built loads of Teles, as I've said before, I just wish it were available for UK customers.

    I wish they would offer nitro finishes, on the body and on the neck. Also vintage radiuses and vintage frets. It really seems like they should offer the option of a tweed style case in different colors.
