Fernandes Telecaster with contour body, Standard issue?

Post by Chum » Sun Jan 12, 2020 2:09 am

Hi to all!
I found a Fernandes Telecaster in what seems yo be candy apple red, with the newer, LE style headstock, slab rosewood fingerboard, and Kluson-style tuners. However, the body itself is not the usual Slab body found on most Teles; this one has the contours of a Strat, i.e. the arm cut in front, and the belly cut at the back. I have not been able to find any info on Fernandes Tele copies that also have contour bodies.
The serial number is on the back of the headstock: "FG03021105".
Did Fernandes come out with Contour Bodied telecasters? This one looks very nice, and the price will be around US$150-170ish, which is of course the main reason i am considering it.
Hope you guys can help me figure this one out. Really smitten by it, just not sure if it is a regular production model.
