Check this out! Fender's new Vintage Hot Rod version of the '52 reissue. A modified version of one of the most coveted vintage teles. Fender added a mini-humbucker in the neck position, and a more modern neck shape with larger frets (vintage-style Fender frets are pretty puny if you ask me.) I understand they are also finishing it with an extremely thin finish that increases resonance. I suppose similar to that on the U.S. Highway One line.
Anyway, thought I would throw this towards you for the tele-heads that haven't heard.
