    Pretty excited about this purchase. This tele is a 2002 Fender American Deluxe Telecaster in what I believe is called Candy Tangerine.

    The coolest part for me is it has a very nice and different upgraded pickup combination. The neck pickup is an early 70's Gibson "patent" mini-humbucker and the bridge is a "Razer" brand alnico pickup.

    She's in very good shape overall, with a couple of dings. 2 or 3 on the bottom bout, one is to undercoat on the face below the pickguard, not super noticeable. I actually like worn and dinged up guitars. I love character.

    The frets have been dressed, but have many years of play left. The action is very low and VERY fast, no buzzing etc.

    She certainly is a looker but that not the only thing with these awesome and aggressive pickups.......

    The best way to describe this tele....she looks like a princess on the outside and is a complete whore in the bedroom. What a sound!!

    Here she is.....

    You have been scammed. Tangerines are orange. That looks red to me.
    Are you sure it's not candy apple red.
    Why not post in the fender section?
    Tele's are cool. Enjoy

    Naw...it is just the lighting that makes it look that way. I'll take better pictures. Here is a pic of my other tele......it is Candy Apple Red (Muddy Waters Signature with Road Worn Neck....it kicks ass too). You can see the difference. I did not know there was a fender specific section. Lots of tele love in this section but I can post in Fender too. Yes...tele's are cool. Thanks.

    Nice.
    Your building up a nice tele family.
    Group shot should work well.

    What a beaut! Nice colour. I love the binding on the Deluxe as well! I've decided to add a Tele Deluxe instead of another Les Paul. Gotta save up though, can't wait.
