Offset Tele

Ladies & gentlemen, this Fender offset Telecaster is a NAMM 2016 debut- that's right- 2016. However, it was a limited edition model which was time released between March & October last year, now available at Swee Lee (List: $2,099). It's part of the (now) discontinued American Standard series so you know its pedigree. Yes, it looks a little funny, a cross between two prominent models (Telecaster/ Jazzmaster), a mutant if you will & acquired taste. How many of us are willing to embrace something delinquent but still trust the tone & playability of a 'Fender'?
