Other features such as button for pickup positions 6 & 7 and Noiseless pickups are still present. It is also worth noting that the new guitars come in more “normal” Fender colours such as sunburst, black and red.

New for the Deluxe Nashville Teles are the 12inch radius fretboard and a slimmer nut than the outgoing model. Choice of alder or ash bodies depending on colours you choose. The Daphne Blue Tele is looking really good!

Online rumour is that prices have gone up for these Mexican models. We shall see how much more they cost over the previous generation Deluxe models when they hit the stores locally.
