NGD: Fender Limited Edition Sandblasted Ash Telecaster Sapphire Blue!

So this all started when my beloved wife showed me a link on the Fender's site with these Limited Edition Sandblasted Telecasters, as I wasn't aware of these...

I've been looking for quite some time to get a Telecaster. I wanted something a little different from the super-strat shape guitars I bought over the years, and the Telecaster shape has grown on me. Undecided what to get (so many models and colors...), this had to be it!

To each their own, tastes are subjective, but I simply loved the finish! And, the day my local store received this one we visited the store and me and my wife loved it, of course. Pics don't do it justice, it's simply beautiful in person (again, my tastes ). I wanted to stay away from the traditional butterscotch blonde finish, but wanted a "vintage" looking Tele with a maple board and 3-saddke bridge. And I felt in love with this finish, a modern/vintage blend to my eyes, that almost look like a swirl.

So, with the help of my dear father, 25 years after my first Fender (and first guitar), an American Standard Stratocaster, I have now a USA made Telecaster.

And I simply love it, it's great and refreshing to have something so "simple/basic". The neck is wonderful, it plays amazing, it sounds great with that Twang... oh well...

And finally, the pics (cell phone pics, nothing special, with the guitar still with the plastic on it), since each one is different and only 250 were made of each color:

Awesome Tele......one of the best I've seen.

I wonder if FMIC stole the sandblasted idea from [email protected] Area51 customs. He was doing sandblasted ash bodies a couple years ago.

Wow, I really like the look of that. Nice guitar!

And I did the same as you, buying a Telecaster as a departure from the super start design.
