New Guitar Day – Fender Custom Shop Custom Classic Telecaster

Here it is – my new Fender Custom Shop Custom Classic Telecaster. Aged Cherry Sunburst. Beautiful in every way, except sadly it arrived with a broken selector switch tip. I have written to them for a replacement, but no big deal.  Additionally, I find it puzzling that the guitar is in this colour. According to the Fender website, they never made a CC Tele in this colour, but then again, it is a Custom Shop – anything is possible. Further, the CC specs state that the control panel should be reversed, with the selector switch towards the input jack. Do I have the equivalent of a Penny Red with the Queen’s head printed back to front? I emailed the Custom Shop guys – let’s see what they say.
