When in doubt, check for Fender Special Run guitars! Anderton's UK has a FSR Fender Telecaster Deluxe in Arctic white that has the traditional headstock just like the guitar played by Luke Hemmings. The theory that the guitar in question is a Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Deluxe with a Fender Telecaster neck bolted onto it is incorrect for the sole fact that the traditional style neck pocket is different from that of the Fender Telecaster Deluxe neck pocket. A regular telecaster neck could not be fitted to the Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Deluxe without some serious woodwork being done to the neck. The Fender Telecaster Deluxe has a 70s style Stratocaster neck on it, which is rounded at the heel of the neck. A telecaster neck is more square in shape, with the heel of the neck running parallel to the neck pickup.

I have an orange sparkle one that was a limited run. This was given as a gift to me by family. The tone of this guitar is incredible. I love the humbuckers, especially for clean tones. The sound is quite thick when played with distortion. The neck took some getting used to since I don't have huge hands. The fretboard is flatter than most Fenders, It feels like my SG. Which is a plus for me. The electronics are simple - 1 tone and 1 volume for each pickup. 3 way switch between pickup and combinations.
