Saw this some time ago Moe and meant to post it for your enjoyment, overlooked by perpetual distraction in the moment until today.Thought it might be of interest to you with your new Tele?

Guitar and song both motivate me, might you? Learning the latter is intended as 'first cab off the rank' in my 'songs to learn' project for 2021.

Love the elegant Sunburst aesthetic with gloss Maple neck look and pickup tone of that Fender Vintera '50s Telecaster. Unfortunately, along with the good, it comes with a chunky '50s "U" neck and 7½" radius fretboard I'm less fond of (understatement). Fender do do a modern take on it with their Fender Vintera '50s Telecaster Modified with hotter pickups with a soft "V" neck and 9½" radius which would be a better personal fit, but not in that Sunburst.
