"Fender MZ or MX code to get the most worn in 50's Tele."

Summary: I just got this GTR. The stock picture on the site is wrong. The picture is from the Fender model year code MZ 2000 - 2010. The GTR I got is from the Fender model code MX 2010 and on. This GTR does not have the worn in look on the body at all. The neck is worn in but the body is Tan and does not have road worn on it all. If you want the real worn in look on these GTR you have to look on the Fender yellow sticker on the box for MZ code.
Summary: This is a great telecaster, mine actually doesn't even look worn which is actually really cool to me. It doesn't have the excessive neck wear, it actually has none at all. Really thin coat of nitro, that will look awesome with a couple of years of wear. Very happy with this guitar.
Summary: I never played a guitar that felt this good in my hands. I liked the idea or a worn in guitar, but didn't like that they all looked alike. When I finally picked one up to try out, it was all over. It's like your favorite shirt or baseball mitt . The pickups in this guitar sound better than most other teles I have tried. Great guitar and worth the money for me.I've had it for 9 months now, and I am thinking of another one for a backup.
Summary: There are way too many excellent Teles in the world to deliberately purchase one this ugly. And having looked at the pictures offered, I realized that they are all pretty much identical. All of the scratches and "scars" are in the same place, regardless of color or finish. Obviously, this has nothing, at all, to do with zZounds. Y'all simply sell what is produced - I guess I just don't get it. I have some vintage underwear, with a hole scratched in exactly the same spot.
Summary: First of all, let's get something straight. I don't like "relic" guitars. But after doing a lot of searching, this one was the only one that incorporated all of the features I wanted in a new Telecaster, so I bit the bullet and bought it anyway. I'm glad I did. The playability is terrific, the sound is great, and it is a premium Telecaster regardless of having been made in Mexico and regardless of being a "relic".

Summary: I expect to keep this guitar for a very long time and will not part with it. Like I stated above I have many tele's and this one surpasses the Fender American Standards I have and for which I plan on selling, I don't play them anymore. I would buy this again and in fact plan on buying the tobacco burst/sunburst and a Baja Desert Sand.
Summary: I ordered one in the Butterscotch finish. The guitar was delivered in fantastic condition. Unpacking didn't take long and a quick tuning led to a quick play of La Grange, that went off real well. The guitar is all I had hoped for. It has that "journeyman" look and the Texas pickups do it all quite well, from typical chimey Tele sounds to enough power to make my Blackheart amp breakup and deliver a nice rock n roll growl.
