Parts Telecaster?

I have been searching for a telecaster such as this one.
Apparently it's a guitar bought from a pawn shop with a strat pickup and seymour duncan antiquities tele pickups..

I'm interested mainly in the color of this guitar, also, that is the sound I've been looking for in a telecaster, I play lots of clean stuff and the twangy sound this one has is amazing.

I want to know if there is a model similar to that one (color and pickup configuration) or if I have to buy the separate parts and assemble it myself.

Edit:
That guitar is owned by Andy Othling from Lowercase Noises, he uses it in many of his videos, and it's gorgeous

it's a nashville tele.

tele pups with a strat middle pup.

it looks like a really thin light blue spray over a silver base coat to me.

I don't think it's a B Bender. That's a pot the blends the middle & bridge pickups together. I'd love to build a tele like this.

That would be a very silly place for a blend pot. You'd have to route and wire all the way out there and back for no reason. I'll have to watch some of his videos later but I'd be very surprised if that were not a B-bender, or at least where one used to be.

Or what maybe happened is he said "bender" and you heard "blender."
But it does kiiiinda look like there's a knob on there.
Huh.

Fender offered the same setup as the James Burton Signature Telecaster. I don't know if it remains available.
