I'm not sure if it's cool to link to ebay, but I'm doing so strictly to ask about a guitar, so if I'm not supposed to let me know. This isn't my ebay account.

What are the three holes for that are routed out near the neck pickup? I've seen another tele body with a single hole and the guy said it's just how they're made. What is it for?

Good question. I have a Fender Custom Shop Tele that I changed the pickguard on. I don't remember it having those holes.

they might be to try get the body perfectly balanced but that body look very dodgy, for one i don't think fender make a 2010 version of the standard with a hs body shape
