This Fender Telecaster from 1973 is an excellent example of a mid '70s four bolt neck Telecaster, with all the tone and vintage mojo of it's earlier counterparts, without the pre-CBS price tag.
This Telecaster features a one piece Ash body, which is fairly unusual for this time period, with a nicely aged see through blonde finish that shows off the beautiful grain of the wood. The neck has a typical '70s 'C' profile and is very comfortable in the hand, with the frets only having minimal wear. The original single coil pickups feature all the clarity and top end you would expect from a telecaster bridge, with the traditional mellow sound from the neck position. Other features include the correct 'F' stamped tuners used by Fender at the time, a three chrome barrel saddle bridge, and the ashtray bridge cover.
This guitar is in excellent condition, with only the most minimal evidence on play wear. It is a good weight, weighing around 7.5lbs, with the only major finish blemish being a small area of lacquer reaction by the string ferrules. This guitar is internally and externally original, with all electronics and hardware as they should be, with the original 1 meg pots dating to the 49th week of 1973 (304 7349). This guitar also includes a period correct Fender hard case.
