    This arrived today. I absolutely love it! Super resonant and loud unplugged. Nice and light (7.1 lbs). I like the new neck shape...a little thicker than the modern C but not by too much. The stock V-Mod pickups are excellent as well! Classic tele twang all the way. Here's a pic...enjoy!

    Very nice! But is that butterscotch? Looks more like a natural finish.

    As far as I'm concerned, butterscotch blonde is "THE" telecaster.

    Sold the Nash and got this instead?

    Good for you!

    I hope you enjoy the hell out of it!

    It's butterscotch, but the figuring in the wood does give it the natural look it seems!

    Yes sir! The Nash was a great guitar, but it had more of a blues/rock sound, where this American Pro Tele has more of the traditional Tele thing going on. Plus the neck is pretty close to the Nash medium C (a tad smaller but not by much) so I'm definitely digging it!
