I just bought this 2003 Fender (made in USA) Telecaster from Guitar Center as an 'American Standard', and I don't believe that it is. The serial number is Z30XXXXX. It is a beautiful guitar, but the inconsistencies are:
1. the neck plate is plain, (no logo).
2. no tilt adjust on the neck.
3. the bridge has no logo or engraving
4. the saddles are a bright chrome, as opposed to the brushed finish on most of the American Standards that I have seen.
Here is a picture of a similar guitar: http://www.richmccoy.com/images/Instrument/Full/FenderTelecaster2003.jpg
I thought it may be a HWY 1, but it has a lacquer finish, and most HWY 1s also have the logo neck plate, right?
Any help that you may provide would be greatly appreciated.
