NGD: Crimsom Glory - Fender content!

I got this guitar and a Brian May Red Special in trade for my 07' Gibson Flying V. I'll never regret that trade. Sold the red special and thought that this korean Telecaster fmt was a keeper. When I spoke to the original owner, I got interested whe he told me that he had a mahogany set-in telecaster with Duncan PU's. I plugged it into my amp and felt in love with it's tone: It reminds me of a Gibson Sg due to the materials and PAF-like humbuckers (It has a Pearly gates and a 59') but it has much more bite thanks to the longer scale length. It is ultra comfy (contoured heel and belly cut -> WIN) and incredibly light. When coil-splitting, the guitar sounds incredibly well, clear but not thin, specially on the neck position. And the best thing is that is holds down-tuning pretty well: Now it is set in drop C and keeps sounding tight and full. On to the pics:

I guess it's very uncharacteristic of Fender to make a set neck Tele with a flame top, but it is very cool that they did. Schecter would be right at home on that headstock. That's a lot of plus points for weirdness right there - and I love Telecasters too.

Oh, I like the worn case. All mine are new and shiny still...
