    Man oh man.

    The edge binding throws a monkey wrench into the equation for me.

    Have no idea but it's a beautiful Nashville Tele! Looks like a unicorn to me.

    Have to ask; was the Hot Rod Deville and OCD pedal too loud for inside? :D;)

    It is fairly rare. I believe it's an American Tele Plus V2 Nashville with Lace Sensors instead of the first generation Noiseless pickups.

    It worth keeping for a long period of time.

    The Mexican Nashville Deluxe has Tex Mex pickups.

    Your guitar is not an Mexican Nashville Deluxe.

    What you have is basically what became or at least inspired the American Deluxe Nashville in 98.

    The 98 American Deluxe Nashville came with first generation vintage Noiseless Pickups. IMO, your Lace Sensors are much better.

    On the left in this pic is my 98 American Deluxe Nashville.

    Though I really like the guitar i don't particularly like or need a Telecasters with the middle Strat pickups and also didn't like the Noiseless pickups.

    It now looks like this

    If mine would've had the Lace Sensors I likely would've left it stock.

    On the left in this pic was my Mexican Nashville Deluxe which I also eventually De- Nashvilled.

    I have not heard of someone de-Nashville-ing a tele! Thought about getting one, but I started liking Strats and never thought about it again.

    97tekecarl, that is a nice guitar. I know nothing about it, but I like how it looks.

    I was never big on the Nashville tele set up. If I wanted three pickups, I'd use a hardtail Strat instead.

    Your middle pickup is specific to your model only as far as I know. In mine they just used a Strat middle pickup (that's what they do for most Nashville Telecasters). Unless I'm mistaken your middle pickup is Strat sized but with a Tele cover. I have never seen one in person. If they used it on other models it was very limited.

    That model is the only one (I know of) that doesn't use either a normal Strat middle pickup or a second Tele neck pickup. It's a completely separate style middle pickup.

    My first Nashville Tele was that Mexican Deluxe. I really liked the neck on it and wasn't sure of any traditional Tele's with the same neck. I don't find I often use the middle pickup on any three pickup guitar.

    I bought the American Deluxe Nashville because I wanted an American Deluxe Telecaster and "beggars can't be choosers".

    Fender likely can't verify that model with the serial number alone as they may very well have used an American Standard neck (Fender's record keeping sometimes leave much to be desired from what I hear). But if you send them pics they should have no problem.

    Rumor has it that the first Hwy 1 Strats just had straight up American Standard necks.

    I would also keep that one stock. If you ever did feel the need to change anything I would be careful not to do anything non-reversable and make sure to keep the original parts.
