Cosmetic Condition: The finish has seen some wear and tear over the years but overall the guitar is looking good. The top has mostly minor lacquer wear and pick marks. The back has some signs of buckle rash and other scratches but no structural damage to be found. The neck is nice and glossy with hardly a mark on it, it feels great to play. The headstock has some usual light wear around the edges but nothing major. This ‘70s Tele has held up beautifully over the years!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board. The frets are big with minimal play wear.

Modifications/Repairs: The guitar has been refretted. The volume pot has been replaced. The bridge saddles and nut have been replaced.
