Body: Original Olympic white finish
Neck: Maple neck with a small-medium “C” profile, 1 5/8” wide nut, rosewood veneer fretboard, 7.25” radius, and dot inlays
Pickups/Hardware: Kluson deluxe tuners, two single-coil pickups (rated at 6.3 kOhms in the neck and 6.3 k in the bridge), three-way pickup selector switch (which is a bit sticky), volume and tone controls (pots date to 1966)
Cosmetic Condition: The is the real deal! The Olympic white finish has aged to a beautiful shade of yellow. The top has a few dings, one finish chip, several light scratches, as well as some nice finish wear along the edges (especially the bass side lower bout). The back and sides show a moderate small amount of buckle rash for the age of this guitar, as well as a handful of dings, scratches, finish chips (along the edges) and small dents, but overall are in fantastic shape. The neck is smooth and glossy, with a couple of very minor dings behind the 11th fret. The headstock has a moderate amount of light scratches and edge wear, and it appears that some of the Fender logo has worn away, though the clear outlines remain. This Telecaster is an absolutely dreamy!
Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board. The frets have some play wear. The low E string has a bit of slack, but holds tension as expected.
Modifications/Repairs: Repro bridge pickup (Seymour Duncan Antiquity), knobs, switch tip and ashtray cover. The back of the neck appears to have been oversprayed. The guitar has had different tuners on at some point. A second string tree was added, but has since been removed, leaving the filled screw hole visible. Under the pickguard a prior owner wrote his name. There is a non-working 67 Telecaster pickup included in the case that needs to be rewound.
