Body: Original Blonde finish

Neck: Maple neck (stampled “8 2 82”) with a “C” profile, 1 5/8” wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 7.25” radius, and dot inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Fender tuners, two single-coil pickups (rated at 7.4 kOhms in the neck and 6.5 k in the bridge), three-way pickup selector switch, volume and tone controls (one visible 1975 pot code)

Cosmetic Condition: The top is holding up nicely, with the most noticeable blemish being along the treble side of the bridge, though there is a good amount of light case rash along most of the surface. The back shows a fair amount of buckle rash, as well as a continuation of the aforementioned case rash. The sides and edges have taken the brunt of the wear, with plenty of chipping and wear along the edges, and several patches of finish wear along the sides. The neck has a good amount of texture in first position, but gradually becomes more smooth the higher you travel. The headstock has its fair share of light dings, but overall is pretty clean for the age of this Tele. This Fender is ready to rock!

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

Modifications/Repairs: The body has been routed for a humbucker. The pickups have been replaced with a set of Fender ’64 reissues. The fretboard has been reglued at the first fret (possibly from a truss rod repair). The nut has been replaced. The pickguard has been altered to have truss rod access.
