    Caught a “B-Stock” sale at one of my local big box music stores. After thoroughly examining it and finding nothing to denote why it would qualify as B-Stock (no finish chips, neck/fretboard/headstock dings, discoloration, electronics issues, etc), I asked the guy working why it was listed at $900 CAD below retail:

    “Oh that one? Yeah. Nothing wrong with it at all. They sent it out as part of a trade show display. Got unboxed, tags put in the case, and played lightly for a few days before sending it back to the warehouse.”

    SOLD.

    Not a bad way to ring in my 39th Birthday.

    Very, Very Nice fiddle Brother, and knowing that's the 'New' way of marking show guitars sometimes...that part of the story is quite believable,...it's that farfetched '39th' Birthday BS making me choke on my Coffee early this Sunday moanin' Nancy,...

    ...Brother I've heard some good ones, but nobody has 39th BD's anymore,...Nice Deals on Beautiful guitars, Yeah I get that...But talking that other 'Story',...ain't buyin' it. Tom

    Thanks all! Don’t know why I waited so long on a Tele? Maybe just waiting on the right one at the right deal. Sounding and playing great at practice last night, looking forward to getting it recorded this week.

    ...Alright, and also have a Happy Birthday...it's just been so long ago since I had a 39th, Well...anything, let me ask you, do you still have your Hair?...if so, do you have a full head of it?,...Brother I do hope you all the best, and if you tire yourself of that Tele.,...PM me and I'll send you my Address, and even a Shipping Label, that's Pre-Paid and everything,...

    ...all you'll need to do is get a box and slip the guitar in it, then take it to the UPS store, and they'll do the rest to make sure I get it. Tom

    Does it have a rounded 60's neck?. I don't like the "modern C" profile that Fender uses on most of their production guitars, too thin for me.

    It does. Really comfortable. My Strat has a modern C, and while I do like it, this definitely has a carve that feels more natural to me.
