I had other things taking my time since yesterday when it arrived, but here it is, in all its Sonic Blue goodness. I love that fat U neck.
I've tuned it up, played it through my 1W Supro. It has twang for sure, but the Supro is a bit dark, so no ice pick. I'll try it into one my other amps later. I have a few... But let's look at the pics. I didn't really have a way to measure the neck thickness, so I had to cobble something.

Full Monty



Curvy neck



Vintage-y tuners



More curvy neck



Fender's 50% intonateable bridge



Vintage-y logo, tuners, string tree, too



thick neck



Thick neck, 12th



EDIT Sept 1 2020: can you believe that I'm thinking of trading this beauty for the Road Worn version? Come back sometime in October.

that thing is gorgeous. Fender kills it so much with these imports. I love the Classic Series, I'm sure I would love the Vintera

I wanted a Baja, but they are out of production, and I didn't buy right away the used one I had my hands on (it got sold.) This is better than the Baja and the Player series :)

Vintera 50s and 60s Modified have the 4-way switch and S1 phase option.

But it's an easy enough change to your standard Vintera.

I already preordered the blonde roadworn. I can’t wait. I’ve been waiting for an affordable relic for a long time.

Very nice tele you’ve got there, and next one I buy will have a thicker neck. I guess I kind of take micrometers and dial calipers for granted since my dad used them at work and made them available at an early age & other than expensive ones there weren’t many options back then, but nowadays inexpensive options are available. Something I’ve done in the past was to buy them for an annual “Yankee swap” Christmas party, and every year guys would take them off of someone rather than grabbing another package saying “I’ve never had these but need them”.
Harbor Freight and other places have them very reasonably priced if you ever have a need for them like for this. Enjoy your new guitar, I’d rather have that then a roadworn!
