Cosmetic Condition: This Tele shows only light play wear post refinish. The headstock face shows nice but significant checking. Wear can be felt on the back of the neck spanning from the 1st fret to about the 6th fret. There is a large area of "wear" or buckle rash on the back of the body near the string ferrules. This appears to be "relic'ing" as finish is present over the bare ash.

Tech Notes: Currently, set up with 10-gauge strings low action, and optimal neck relief. The tall frets show minimal play wear. -- The serial number dates from 1966 - 1967. The neck stamp dates from 1967.
