Default 2016 Deluxe Nashville Telecaster

I'm not an electric player by a long shot, but I do enjoy them. I'm really like Telecasters. So I was thinking a few weeks back of the things Fender offers that I like but haven't owned, like rosewood fretboard, the color Daphne Blue, 3 pickup Tele, and a flatter fretboard. So I got looking into it, and they make such a thing (darn it!).

Off I went to a dealer 20 miles away that always has a great inventory. They had one! They gave a a great deal on a trade, and it followed me home...

A bit different than my American Standard. Nice tones! I had to deal with a bit of treble bleed, but that was easy. The pickups are so much better than the SCN pickups I had several years ago. Over all, this checked all the boxes and likely will not buy another electric to 'keep'. (I'm done buying acoustics, too)

Anyone else out there with a recent Deluxe Nashville?

You might want to check out "7 way strat wiring" if it's not already wired that way.

I have a Nashville style guitar with a B-Bender one of my favorite guitars to play. It has the older Noiseless pickups, which still sound great through my rig.

Yes, I'm looking into a mini switch to activate the neck pickup. Maybe a winter project.

wow, great looking guitar. what does it say on the pickups? bet that extra one gives it some great additional sounds. oh, and i just noticed the 6 saddles.

i got the aged white 58 american vintage a few years ago and love it.

Try a 3-way PU switch and a push/pull pot on the volume control to activate the middle pickup - keeps the stock appearance while giving you all seven combinations...

That's a nice color!

I have a late 20th Century Made In Mexico Nashville Tele which I swapped out the standard bridge for a 52 re-issue bridge, brass saddles and a 52 RI bridge pickup. A fine guitar.

The idea with these is you get the Strat "quack" two pickup sound but with the Tele bridge pickup sound also available.

I love a three pickup Telecaster...

These Nashville's have 1mg pots. I can't find a 1mg solid shaft push pull pot! Any ideas where to find one? I'd wire it to turn on the neck.

Frank, I really like the bridge/neck position. A Straty, Tele tone. And the middle sounds good, too. A great addition to my American Standard.

The pots are so much better the 2001 Tele I use to have.

Are you positive about that pot value? Those are single coil p/u and typically use a 250k pot, while humbuckers typically use a 500k pot. 1000k pot in single coil application doesn't seem right, to me. FWIW - http://www.stewmac.com/How-To/Online...to_choose.html

Haha.. Yes, it's true. In fact I ordered a pre loaded control plate with push/pull and 250k pots before opening up the Telecaster and seeing the 1mg pots. Sent the plate back.

The Neck: 12.0K, Bridge: 8.6K Fender Vintage Noiseless Tele pickups are the difference, I suppose.
