Ngd!

Well, I came home and saw a tall box on my front porch. I forgot to stop to take pictures before I ripped it open.

Inside was two cardboard boxes. I opened the lighter one and discarded the contents to the side.
Then, I pulled out the heavier, more expensive box.

Then I carefully opened cut open the box and found this.
Oh, no. styrofoam wrap!

And then, finally, in the case.

Close up..


New Fender Reissue "Limited-Run" Paisley Telecaster

The stock pictures had the paisley-print more vibrant.
In person, it's kind of dull... Maybe it's just the terrible lighting in my house.
It's not big deal, I suppose. It still looks great.

It sounds great. I was thinking about putting a set of Nocaster pickups in it, but I'm pretty satisfied with my tone.

I plan on changing out the pots because the taper isn't that great at all.

The neck has a slight gloss finish on the fingerboard but a nice satin finish on the actual neck.

The tuners are great, much better than I anticipated. I have some Gotohs I was going to put on there but I don't think I will now.

Really, other than the less-vibrant finish, the only complaint I have is that I thought it was supposed to be a CIJ Fender, but it's MIM... Not a big deal, I suppose, but I kind of wish I would have known before hand. It wouldn't have swayed my desire to buy it, but I just would have like to have known.

Saw this earlier this week over here in Japan. I walked into the store just so i could get a closer look at it since the finish is pretty effin' awesome.

Congrats!

I'm trying to decide if I should buy a neck pickup mounting ring and take off the pick guard.
The pick guard gives it that classic Tele look, but I think more of the paisley-print will be more visible then and make the guitar more unique and pretty.
Also, a clear pick guard is an option.
Any opinions?

Take off the pic guard and we can decide then. Regardless, HNGD! I do love that guitar. I do not like most of his pink guitars. But that one is hot

Can I just say I hate you sir.

On a serious note, that is one amazing looking tele. I'm totally jealous.
