2008 Fender Custom Shop Nocaster Reissue, in the Closet Classic trim. Please review the photos to get an idea how this checking falls on this particular guitar - there are a couple of lines on the top near the controls, with a bit more on the back.  It's pretty subtle, but the finish overall is intentionally not pristine.

This is a great sounding Tele - pretty much exactly what you'd expect.  Snappy, punchy, and powerful. The pickups are Seymour Duncan antiquities and sound killer.  The stock neck pup died on me right after I bought the guitar five or six years ago, which is why the swap; I will include the original pickups in the sale.  Please to repeat: the original neck pickup does not work.  When last I heard it the bridge worked fine and sounded great, but it's been half a decade so please forgive me, but I do not promise its continued performance.  Think of the original pups as case candy, not working parts.

The guitar was refretted by Paul Flynn of True Tone Guitars in Santa Monica.  Paul radiused the frets to 9.5 inches on the 7.5" radius fingerboard.  It's a masterful fret job that sounds killer and plays incredibly well across the entire neck.  The frets do not show wear.  The guitar is strung with and set up for standard .010s.

There are a couple of finish dings (factory applied as far as I know) - for instance, near the output jack and along the top edge along the "belly" area.  There is finish missing at the edge of the treble-side neck pocket.  I have to assume that this is part of the general relic job, as the neck is rock-stable and the pocket has zero gap.  

The neck itself is smooth as silk and glossy without relicing.  There are no dings or other thumb-worriers that I detect.  Nice solid "U" shape.
I do not have the original case but can offer a excellent condition black or tweed g & g.  Your chose and can send photos prior to committing 

UPDATE: I located the C of A as well a few hang tags; they are included as pictured.  Fender verified the stats for the guitar from its serial number. This email correspondence lives in the case and will arrive with you.
 This is a fantastic Tele.  It sustains beautifully, rings like a bell, plays wonderfully, looks great, and weighs in comfortably.

Happy to answer questions.  Will respond to reasonable offers but please keep lo-ball offers to yourself.
