    Has anyone played this guitar? It seem like it has a bushel basket of options.

    I have it in a Strat - the Strat is awesome. I might want to grab this deluxe.

    Needed a complete set up. The 9’s it came with were cheap s**t.

    You have it in a Strat, well why not get it in a Tele? That said, pretty much the same sound coming from both of them might cause you to question your purpose after a while. Other than that con, the guitar to me is awesome and I would feel proud owning it. Personally I thrive on the standard Tele single coil in the bridge position, which can go from the legendary Tele twang, to the hot Texas Specials, aka Stevie Ray Vaughan tone. Good luch in uour choice and may hindsight 20-20 not find you.

    looks beautiful!

    can I ask you, is there any neck dive when sat down with it? I heard that TELE deluxes can be a bit neck heavy. Also, how is the overall weight of the guitar?

    I'm o.k. with the paint, I , just to be a picky little ninney-nah no-no- I think a tele head stock would be a pleasant surprise.

    I’d say not too much, it’s not an issue. The overall weight including case was 6kilos
    So maybe 4.5. It doesn’t feel like a boat anchor. I’m sure it’s an alder body.
    What does impress is the pups, they really do it justice.

    It can't have a Tele headstock because it's a Deluxe!

    I'm glad Fender kept it model correct in that way. The reason I love the Deluxe is because it's a confusion of so many guitar imageries.

    Fender put the chopped ashtray and 4 bolt features on a deluxe body.... It’s begging for a scramble. I’m gonna give it one...as soon as parts arrive..
