    Those are popular since the guy from Radiohead played one that has a whammy bar. For a grand that's a bargain if in excellent condition and all original.

    $1K is a great deal.
    These originally came in Natural, Ebony Frost, Blue Frost, Crimson Frost and Antique Burst.
    Ebony Frost is color #59 at Fender. You can send the serial number and brief description to Fender's customer service email and they will send you all the info on it, including model #, date of final inspection, etc...

    Congrats that is a beauty! If the back is as clean as the front appears and it is all original you made out great. I have been looking for one of those for a pretty longtime But as stated since Johnny Greenwood of Radiohead started playing one most guys ask around 2K for one in that condition.

    It's ebony frost. I had that same color. It's rare for pluses. $1000 is great considering I sold mine 10 years ago for $2200

    One thing I've realized with these as I jammed with it yesterday, well ... As expected it sounds like it's own beast, nothing really like a telecaster. It weighs a ton, more than any guitar I've ever owned including 70s Les Pauls.

    It's cold outside.
    I played a guitar identical to this one recently. It sounded and played very well.

    This one, and the one I tried had a tremolo.

    The one I tried weighed a ton, and that is the biggest reason I would stay away. Easily the heaviest guitar I have played in 20 years.

    I had a red starburst Tele Plus Deluxe. Dayum, that was a great guitar that I should have never, ever sold. But, I sold it to get a Les Paul.

    Does it have the Hipshot tremsetter in the rear cavity? I loved the 3 way mini switch that let you select both, or either one of the red dual lace coils.
