I've honestly no idea Steve - taken me all year to get one. I think stores are still 'expecting stock' but rumours are that Fender are not making more..

A shame - the first Fender 'non guitar' instrument i've truly liked!

The Fender Tenor Tele is probably destined to become as rare as the Fender Mandocaster.

Thanks for the review that sure is a neat instrument. I think that finding strings for CGDA tuning should not be that difficult, might even be possible with the OEM strings.

Possibly - and if not - just a case of buying some other electric guitar strings and experimenting. Know someone who says they tuned one to GCEA (presume also, lighter strings all round).

It's very neat - and nice to review a Fender and be positive for a change - i've always pointed out in Fender uke reviews that I LOVE their guitars. If only they made their ukes to this quality.

Thanks for the review, Barry! I play mostly soprano ukes, but I’ve always wanted a Telecaster (and definitely NOT a Fullerton). I ordered one in butterscotch blonde from Elderly and waited for months, but when it arrived I was delighted. I have limited 6 string skills, but I’ve been transferring my ukulele skills and playing through Baritone Ukulele Fretboard Aerobics. I really love the thing and am glad I bought it.
