What are the specs on a 2006 Fender Telecaster Deluxe Series MIM? I have been looking for a while and can't find any info specifically on this year and model. As a side note, it also carries the Fender 60th Anniversary badge on the rear of the headstock. The MZ6 serial number does show it was a 2006 MIM. The Body is a natural finish Ash (probably Poly from the licked slick look in the photos) and the neck is Maple with skunk stripe. Tuners look Vintage kluson style. Bridge is a 6 saddle chrome'ish ashtray that I hadn't really seen before (not a tele expert by any means though). Are these original parts? Or am I looking at a partscaster type deal?

Thanks in advance for any info you might be able to provide.

Feed the serial number here: https://www.fender.com/product-registra ... ial-search
For a 2006 instrument, the database should tell you the exact model, so it's easier to find the specs.

The Serial run indicates that it is a DELUXE NASHVILLE TELECASTER.

So... someone has performed a Nashville-ectomy and gone "vintage" with a pearloid pg and vintage wiring (no tone control on the neck). I haven't pulled the pickguard yet, I have just been playing it, but I did "fix" the wiring to a modern Tele with tone control on both pickups. Now I am wondering if the Pickups are original... they are Punchy and a LITTLE BIT icy. Dry into my Fender Excelsior (with added tone knob) its sounds good but I HAVE TO dial back the volume a smidge to roll off the boom or the scream. Would this have Tex Mex pups or ????? I also am not a huge fan of the 6 saddle chrome bridge as it is a little jangly. I have a Fender Compensated Brass to swap out maybe. Not sure what to do with it right now... go original or swap in a Nocaster bridge and a PAF in the neck and play a little Joe Boss.

The Dlx Nashville would originally have had TexMex pickups (Tele N&B, Strat middle), but after the mods, who knows. Inside pics might clear that up.

But the DLX Nashville shouldn't have been available in Natural in 2006, which points to that the electronics mod isn't the only modded feature. There were FSR series Standards in that color, e.g the GuitarCenter had one.
