Aside from the pickguard, the guitar is all original & has a really cool vintage vibe to it. The semi-chunky maple neck shows off some light flame figuring in the back & is very comfortable to play. The pickups sound fantastic & deliver those clear, bell-like tones we've all come to love about the Telecaster.
Cosmetic Condition: Used, but not abused, with good honest play wear - various minor nicks, chips, dents & dings; scratches & some finish wear. Overall the guitar has a great look with a beautiful patina.
Neck: Nicely rounded, somewhat chunky maple neck with black dot inlays. Frets do show wear, but still have some life in them. Single string tree & headstock decal is in great shape with no bits missing. F tuners are in perfect working condition. 1 5/8" nut width; 25 1/2" scale length. The neck is straight & truss rod is loosened all the way. Neck stamp is faint but reads 2 NOV 71 B.
Body: Solid ash body in blonde finish. String-thru bridge with three adjustable "barrel" saddles. Bridge cover is missing. Unoriginal 3-ply black pickguard looks cool so we left it. Guitar weighs 8 lbs 11 oz.
Electronics: Original Tele single coils. Bridge - 6.16K ohms; Neck - 6.92K ohms. Master volume & tone controls with knurled knobs. 3-way selector switch with black "top hat" cap. Pots date to '66 & all electronics are in perfect working condition.
Case: Original 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.
