          Can I get a quick review of that Tele? Im in the market for one right now, and am considering a American Special, Highway one or maybe a Roadworn.

          Oh yeah, put a gold pickguard on that.


          I haven't ordered it yet. I'm still trying to figure out whether I'm gonna be happy with it. Wildwood has this Thin Skin (used) for a pretty decent price:

            The paisley looks pretty cool:

              How about, instead of a Tele with a white body, a Tele with a black body?

              The black body will take those fancy paisley and tortoise pickguards much better than white. Those fancy pickguards seem to clash with the white.

                The American Special is only available in white and 3 color burst. My only objection is to the black guard. It would be simple to replace with a white one to make it look like a proper Fender and not a Squire or some other knock off. Butterscotch blond ('52 tele ri) looks great with a black guard, but a white tele body with a black guard just looks wrong. The 3 color burst is OK, but Fender makes them too dark these days:



                It should look more like this with a yellowish-center:
