I was just looking at one at the L&M in Mississauga. I may be wrong, but I thought it was under $900. It was a nice guitar, and that neck is beefy all right, but it wouldn't make me trade in my Hywy 1 Texas Tele. You get more tonal options, which is never a bad thing, and the one I tried was reasonably light, but it didn't grab me like the Texas did. Perfectly nice guitar though.
