Here's a lovely 2005 Fender Custom Shop Albert Collins model in near mint shape.  Aside from a very few dinks, she's in beautiful condition with little evidence of playwear and plays and sounds just great.  Finely crafted and set up by the Corona boys and these swamp ash ones are spanky twangy lovely beasts and do everything a proper humbucking neck tele should!

This is a super light example at 6lb 2oz and feels like a bird around your neck and the neck profile and everything adds up to a killer tele guitar.  Most of the contemporary ones are coming out of Corona at 7+ pounds (and $4700+.  Here's a fine example for your consideration!
