    Not for me, but very nice -- really coherent design. I like those gold foils and expect they will work well on a Tele. (I replace my Junior's P90 with one and loved it.)

    I really appreciate all the comments, it’s gonna be a long haul..... I totally get that it’s not everyone’s choice or “Grail” . I call this a “ BBQ Rig” ! “ Pimped out Sunday go to meetin guitar”! Like or dislike, we all have our likes, I LIKE this one!!!!!!!!

    Right on, Sybo!
    I appreciate the kind words, too.
    I’m looking forward to seeing how these turn out once production starts. I spent a lot of time on these new pickups - dialed in for a Thinline.

    I’m hoping you love it!

    Cheers!

    Love it, congrats! Didn't know Fender is doing gold foils. Would love to hear what they sound like. I put gold foils in my Ibby AS73, but everyone's take on gold foils is different.

    That fabled green color, in more of a trans/toned look, is fresh ground to be plowed. I have no idea why I haven't done a body in a finish like that. Looks very nice and we haven't seen this over and over before.

    Welcome, Ron!

    Thank you!
    These aren’t limited in quantity, only in time when they can be ordered.
    From what I heard, it did quite well at NAMM - was the most popular of this years introductions.
    Perhaps when the run is over I can obtain a total quantity, but for now it’s limited to the number we can sell ;)
