The gorgeous Telecaster from the early days of CBS Fender ownership brings together a host of the characteristics that make these instruments such phenomenal workhorses.
Between the two single-coil pickups you have a wide range of tones, with everything from the iconic tele spank and chime in the bridge through to a gloriously smooth and rich tone in the neck pickup that works wonders on a clean tone and provides a huge, punchy feel with the amp cranked up.
The finish across the instrument has developed a stunning patina over the years, and with the four-bolt neck, transition era logo and outstanding playability all round, it's a hard guitar to put down!
In regards to originality, the guitar has had a small route under the pickguard which has since been filled and refinished along with the rest of the body, the pickguard is non-original and the 3-way switch has been changed (With the original still in the case).
The guitar still has its original hardcase, which over time has become a true rock'n'roll relic.
