    This is a 2003 AmSe Ash. I got it used, and the only thing even resembling a mark on it are the 2 little spots right below the control plate.

    I took a close up of the grain because it's so darn nice. It's matched so well it's hard to believe it's 2 pieces.

    it also came with the molded case etc.

    One question, I have never owned a current MIA Fender. What is the 5th hole in the neck plate?

    Nice looking Tele

    The 5th hole is the micro tilt adjust for adjusting the tilt angle of the neck/body.

    This was used so I didn't think the tags were with it. I just checked the case though, and they are there. I'll give it a read.

    Beautiful!
    If you have any questions not covered by any literature that came with the guitar, take a dig through Fender's web site. All kinds of set up info, part numbers, specs, etc. there.

    Thanks guys. I will totally admit I bought this after instand GAS seeing the photos. I had been carefully Tele shopping for a replacement for my CIJ 52' RI, and I took one look at the photos and bought it. I got it for $750 though, and sold the CIJ for $650. So I think I came out of the deal pretty well. The guitar looked even better than the photos apon arrival, hence the better photos I took :)
