What makes this guitar special:  A super rad Deluxe loaded with a pair of killer sounding Wide Range humbuckers that kick out superb tone.  A dynamite, true vintage Tele with fabulous playability & feel.  Professionally set up by our luthier with fresh strings & low action so it plays & sounds fantastic!

Cosmetic Condition:  Good condition for its age with typical play wear - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches & some finish wear.  Overall the guitar has a cool look to it with a nice patina.

Neck:  Slender profile maple neck with skunk stripe & black dot inlays.  Professionally refretted with medium jumbo frets.  Frets are in great shape with no wear.  Strat style headstock with bullet truss rod & double string trees.  Sealed Fender tuners are in perfect working condition.  1 5/8" nut width; 25 1/2" scale length.  Neck is straight & truss is functioning.

Body:  Contoured, solid ash body in Walnut finish.  String-thru bridge with unoriginal graphite saddles.  3-ply large black pickguard shows pick wear & only one very tiny crack near one of the screws, but is in otherwise great shape.  Guitar weighs 10.25 lbs.

Pickups:  Original Fender Wide Range humbuckers both dating to '74.  Bridge - 10.68K ohms; Neck - 10.92K ohms.  Dual volume & tone controls with black "witch hat" knobs; 3-way toggle switch.  All electronics are in good working condition.

Case:  Unoriginal hardshell case included.

Why We Love Fender

It's hard to find a name more synonymous with guitars than Fender. Ever since Leo Fender burst onto the scene with his now-iconic Telecaster, Fender guitars have found homes in the hands of brand new guitar players and seasoned rock stars. When the headstock says Fender, you know you're getting a quality instrument.
