    Looks great, plays like a dream, and may be one of the most versatile guitars ever. Has piezo for acoustic sounds, and a middle pickup so it also gets into strat territory. Covers all bases. And you can blend in as much acoustic/magnetic pickup as you like.
    Very nice guitar. Both of my Teles ended up being sunburst 2005 MIMs, somehow.

    they discontinued the model, and can’t find anything like this new, from fender today.

    middle pickups on Teles always looked like clown noses to me, so I ordered a closed black pickup cover, to give it a little more undercover look, on that pickup.

    Cool axe! I used to have a tele that was modded with a middle pickup. I really liked it, and gigged with it for 5 years. I hope you enjoy it.

    Glad you're liking it. I too never understood the white cover on the middle pickup. Easy fix.

    got the pickup cover in, and flipped the neck and middle pickup on the switch. I’d say it is among the best electrics I’ve ever owned, seriously. Not just the honeymoon period.

    thanks @Lonn
