We’ve recently been informed — by a non-paying customer, it must be noted — that too many of our recent descriptions have veered into the obscure and ventured too far from the lingua franca (as it were) of guitar terminology. Consequently, we promise, for this one description at least, to focus on the particulars of this fine Fender instrument. You need only check out the accompanying photos to know it’s photogenic. It’s also loud and robust. The lead pickup is best described as “burly” and would be ideally suited to cutting through the din of a rowdy crowd in an East Texas watering hole. (It would also look great with your favorite snap-button western shirt, but we digress). Meantime, the rhythm pickup is quintessentially Tele—snappy and slightly underpowered (but in a charming way). The neck is a typical mid ‘70s profile, substantial enough to feel inviting in your palm, but not a baseball bat. The body has only a few dings and minor pickwear. The frets are still in very good condition. In sum, this is a fine, well-preserved instrument. The guitar appears to be all original, except for the pickup selector switch (the original, which suffered an intermittent short, is in the case) and possibly one of the tuners, which, though period-correct, has less patina than the remaining five). It ships in its original case. SOLD!
