Comments: I must admit I was never a telecaster fan until I got my paws on this gem. It has got VIBE!. Fender could have used this as a model for its relic models. From its extremely checked paint to its paint drips on the back, three saw marks near the jack, plus rusted hardware, this old girl rocks. Who cares that the original front pickup is gone for a humbucker, and one of the tuners is a double line kluson, it sounds sweet. Had the frets dressed so the action is super low, plus it still has the original ashtray (rusty), and the original single ply pickguard. the body is nice and light plus the bridge pickup screams tele tone.
