Is this MIM Tele (silver burst) an FSR?

    Looking at this locally. I haven't seen this finish before on a MIM Tele. Is it a special run? I know it's a 2011. Thanks!

    I have never seen that color on a MIM. Plus the control plate is reversed. Minor adjustment that some people prefer.

    It has been modded in at least one way, which can be a great or horrible thing. I would look closely before buying.

    I noticed the reversed plate. I have heard there is such a thing as a "Reverse Plate" FSR, but obviously this could have been done aftermarket. Not sure they will let me open it up, but I will check as much as I can. I already own a Player FSR, so hopefully my ears can give me some info!
