I’ve seen a lot of this thinline telecaster over the past couple of weeks, it’s had a fret level, a new pickguard, internal copper shielding, and all new electrics, including a Blues Engine neck and a Rolling Mill bridge coupled with a push/pull coil split.

Emily recorded a demo here before leaving, showing off all the new sounds:
