New Tele Ultra is available, and it comes in a cool crude oil colour called Texas Tea. Belly cut, recessed heal, noiseless pickups, D shaped neck. $3k NZ plus shipping, with no GST if you get it here before the deadline at the end of the month. Tempting.

I don't get it.
No, it's a Fender tele that has features that you previously had go to Suhr, Tom Anderson or any number boutique brands to get.
Lol not really. It's just a very slight tweak and rebrand of what had been the American Deluxe formula for many years. Comfort contours, compound radii and noiseless pickups have been around on these for more than a decade.
I was really hoping for something that would play in a similar league to Suhr but I'm not seeing it here.
