    I'm hopin it's Fake News ;) Sorry but it's not my cup-o-joe.
    The pickguard looks like that speckled paint you re-do your garage floor with.

    I like it. But then, I like most guitars.

    I absolutely love it. Hopefully they got smart and put flatter radius neck on it this time. 7.25” is a no-go for me.

    A tortoise shell style pickguard would be more appealing for me.

    Love the color, the pickguard color and the pickups. Would prefer the pickguard was more or less traditional and not covering the controls.

    Looks like someone at Fender® is a big Mr. Potato Head fan.

    It's an abomination!

    Leviticus 19:19 "'Do not mate different kinds of animals. Do not plant your field with two kinds of seed. Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material. Do not mix Telecasters and Gretsches for their offspring will be cursed for seven generations times seven!"

    I dig the Thinline above, but that bridge is a joke.

    Is this a silver-sparkle guard on an orange body?
    Not my cup of tea...

    Funny I like Strats but the one thing I do not like about them is the flat-bottomed lower bout. Teles are the same but seem worse to me becasue of the overall body shape. I must be the odd guy out I prefer the round bottoms. These new offerings rumored about do nothing for me. I guess I have been spoiled by my BJP.

    Luckily they do nothing for me,see i like Strat's to look like Strat's and Tele's to look like Tele's and so on....

    Anywho,i've been finding it hard enough to find an ordinary Tele to bond with the last 20 years never mind these mashups!
