    I need to stop going to guitar shops because I'm weak. Here's my new Custom Tele in my favorite color, Inca Silver. It's kind of an odd one with a 9.5 radius and vintage frets. I'd prefer a little taller fret wire but it plays great. The flame maple neck pushed me over the edge.

    I'll work on more pictures. I'm the first owner but the guitar was built in 2012. The Custom Shop put a regular Tele decal on the headstock instead of one for a Tele Custom so it was sold at a substantial discount. Everything matches with the certificate so it doesn't matter to me in the least.

    I'm not sure I understand. A Telecaster Custom has a different pickguard and has a WRHB in the neck position. A Custom Telecaster has the binding. What you have is a beautiful Custom Telecaster, but it's not a Telecaster Custom.

    So I got it backwards, I have a Custom Telecaster. Always get those confused. The decal & certificate still just say Telecaster which was the bigger point anyway. That allowed a great deal on the guitar.

    Here's a picture looking down at the neck from a playing position. Nice subtle flame to look at.
