Did your Truxton have a maple fretboard?
If so, did it have the French oil treatment on the fretboard itself?

Cheers,

I honestly don't recall if it had treatment on the board itself? I just remember the back of the neck was super, super smooth and it was very playable.

Congrats on the beautiful guitar. I'm in line for my first K-Line Springfield. It's going to be a long wait. But I am amped up. Chris has been great to talk to.

5 to 6 months.
Hold my beer man... 4.5 years for my last one. No not a K-Line. I know its not encouragement, because waiting several months is still rough. BUT - you'll get a killer guitar so it'll be well worth the wait. (that 4.5 yrs was even well worth the wait).

French oil treatment
Not this. French polish is shellac, with a few drops of oil used to lubricate the applications cloth. It is in no way the same as the oil-wax (EB/Music Man type) finishes also popular now.
I've never played a K-Line but two qualities I like very much in addition to however the guitars may sound would be the nature of the maker -- excellent in interviews and reviews -- and the non-copy headstock that is actually its own great shape (much better than most others).
For all who feel compelled to find a Tele they like, my advice is not to bother. I've had plenty of both, and for me -- for me -- Strats are better. I think they sound better, play better, feel better, and look better. I leave the Teles to others. I have no wish to return to that body shape or twang-tendency configuration (though you can make most any guitar sound like you want). It's just not a necessary thing. The stuff about it being some kind of ultimate player's guitar, or unforgiving, etc. is just BS propogated by Tele players. Jeff Beck plays a Strat.

This Springfield looks just like my most recent one. Mine has the closet classic finish, which has no dings or scratches, but more of a faded finish and hardware. One of the best Strats I've ever played.
