Had mine since Feb. '01, ordered it in summer of '00, so not sure where the serial no. dates it.

It's an incredible axe. Mine is team-built one-off with huge frets, and all the finish off the neck back, and a super-lightweight body.

It's extremely loud acoustically, and just screams through the amp, and the neck pickup is the big secret weapon. It's very sweet clean, yet throaty when driven. We all know about the bridge pickup.

I bought it because I wanted a tele, and I probably play it more than any other guitar I own.

Here she is in action, a decent mix of clean and dirty tones.

I had been a longtime fan of the '52 design and own a '98 AVRI (just an excellent player's instrument) and a '14 CS '52 Relic with a Seymour Duncan humbucker at the neck. I had always been afraid of the U neck, but took the plunge on a used '99 NOS Nocaster at a very fair price and liked that so much that I bought an '08 Nocaster Relic. Unlike many, I do like the blend switching (as long as the other ones have modern 3-way) and my medium-sized hands adjusted to the neck; however, I find that I must first decide whether to play C-neck or U-neck on any given session. 7.25" and vintage frets all the way!
I am happy to hear that the Nocaster is no longer a production instrument-- These are special and this makes mine even more special.
