fender's best kept secret. this guitar easily holds its own against both my NOS nocaster and my 67 tele. all vintage specs save a nice flat radius. 7 lbs. even. i love it. i've heard many say it's got the best neck of any tele out the factory since the 60's. i don't know how many folks have them in here, but they deserve their own thread. my texas has been through some mods, but it always has THAT sound. it has this low end twang i have yet to find on another guitar. brand new!: esquired: blackguard-ed: and now: mint guard, stelly neck pickup, nocaster 10k bridge pickup, glendale knobs. as you can see, this one's seen hell and highwater with me on the road. hooray for the texas highway one!
