Hope you enjoy the day when there are no longer any Mom and Pop AND chain stores nearby you, or even a half day away. I won't.

I don't enjoy it, but I'm already there. 6 hour dive to check out a decent selection of decent guitars and amps.

nope, does nothing. :laugh2:

Humbucker? Nope
Strat pup in the mid position? Nope
Belly cut? Nope
Six Saddle bridge? Nope

that ain't a Tele!

:laugh2:

Truth, but I bought one at GC and it was and is very nice.
My other 'Tele' is hardly a telecaster as well, the Fender FMT one.
More like an almost-LP, set neck Tele !! but it sounds and plays great.

Fender Special Edition Custom Telecaster FMT HH;
Set mahogany neck, mahogany body, carved flame top, SD '59 neck, SD Pearly Gates bridge, rosewood neck. I got the amber one.

Special Edition Custom Telecaster® FMT HH | Fender Electric Guitars

Soon after I got it, my brother borrowed it, might get it back someday.
NOT MIM or US, Malaysia maybe. Very nicely done though.

This is a great news for all of us. This will cut the dealers margins and get us what we want for less.

Excellent move, I hope other manufactures will follow soon..
