Fender Telecaster Blonde Ash 1977

Shipping calculated at checkout.

No sales tax for customers outside California.

This 1977 Fender Telecaster is a great player with the look of an older guitar and some feel infused from the previous owner.

There are a couple of changes to the guitar.  The tuners are a 70s staple, the side-screw Schallers that have added holes to many a guitar.  They do stay in tune, so it isn't surprising to see them on so many 70s guitars.  The bridge pickup was changed out when the guitar arrived, so we added one from our stash, a 70s Fender pickup that recently returned with a fresh rewind from Tom Brantley.  The solders on the original pots have been messed with a bit.

That is the extent of the changes. 

The guitar has seen some gigging in the smoky venues of the 70s and 80's, just enough to give some of that aged color.  Frets have been milled and are a bit low but still have plenty of life left.  The truss rod was checked and has room for future adjustment, if needed. 

The original hardshell case is included.
