Body: Original finish

Neck: Maple neck with a medium “C” profile, 1 5/8” wide nut, 9.5” radius, and dot inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Original tuners, Original bridge pickup and Seymour Duncan neck pickup (rated at 7.6 kOhms in the neck and 6.6 k in the bridge), three-way pickup selector switch, volume and tone controls

Cosmetic Condition: This vintage fella has some real attitude! The top has some finish swirling and light scratching and a couple chips around the bridge from the pickup cover and there is some finish wear on the bass side lower bout. The sides have a smattering of expected edge wear and the back has some classic buckle rash. The neck has a few small dings but is still mostly smooth and nice and glossy and the headstock has some nice edge wear but is all-around in amazing condition. This Tele is a road-ready, veteran rock and roll machine!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.

Modifications/Repairs: The original neck pickup has been replaced with a Seymour Duncan. The three-way switch, nut, and pickguard screws have been replaced. The tone pot has been replaced (dated 1980).
