NGD: Fender Silent Siren Telecaster

In an unprecedented move, UPS arrived this morning (rather than their usual 8pm delivery schedule to me) to deliver my new guitar, a Felder Silent Siren Telecaster

This is the signature guitar of the guitarist/vocalist Sumire Yoshida for the J-Pop band "Silent Siren" and, supposedly, was not to be sold to anyone outside of Japan but, if you do a deep dive you can find it for sale.

According to Google's translation of the Fender Japan website description:

"SILENT SIREN is indispensable for talking about Japanese girl band scenes. Finally, a signature model guitar is now available on the Made in Japan line. A complete original model supervised by the designer himself to realize the ideal telecaster for vocal guitar. The white colour, which covers the entire grip and fingerboard of the neck, and the pale violet lines, which are solid yet reminiscent of thin lines, give off a unique presence. With a Vintage Single-Coil Tele® on the neck side and a Shawbucker humbucker on the bridge side, the HS specification, which was unlikely to be a telecaster, produces the ideal sound.
  • SILENT SIREN Suno signature model
  • A pale violet line reminiscent of a thin line on a solid body
  • Shawbucker Bridge humbucker/HS configuration with Vintage Single-Coil Tele® neck pickup"

This is my first tele and yes, for the most part, the look of this guitar (especially the white fretboard, is what drew me to it).

Will be plugging this in today and putting it through its paces (well, as much as I can put any guitar through its paces).

happy for you man! For me, I can't get into white fretboards when the whole guitar is already white. Maple would make sense to me more. But that's just my opinion, otherwise I love white guitars

It plays great. I am used to playing a Parker Fly Artist which has a thin neck and compound radius so the thicker neck and smaller radius took me a few minutes to get used to but I am definitely enjoying it
