I bought it because I'd rather not gig with the Fender Tele any longer due to it being a collectible guitar. The two might look the same, but there are many significant differences. Fretboard radius (compound 9-12 on the Suhr, vs. 7.5 on the Fender), the Suhr's all have stainless frets (I was going broke shelling out $400 every other year for refrets) and coil splitting of the humbuckers. The red and green guitars are Suhr Classic Antiques. They are identical spec wise, though I had to have the green one custom made because that model of guitar had changed before I had bought it and I didn't like some of the things about the newer ones.
