SOLD - Fender Telecaster Custom 1973 Lightweight with hang tag$0.00 $2,500.00
No sales tax for customers outside California.
Here's a really nice, all original Tele Custom with the original case, bridge cover and hang tag too.
70's Fenders are known for being hefty. This one weighs a mere 7lbs 3oz!
The guitar must have been played some, though it is hard to tell when you give the full front or back a once-over. The only significant wear is on the lower bout, the bass side. The frets have been leveled as well. They are very playable as is, but they are not as full as you might expect based on the condition of the guitar itself.
There is nothing like the tone of the wide range humbucker from this period. I personally dig the combo of the traditional Tele bridge pickup with the humbucker as opposed to the Tele Deluxe, which sports two humbuckers.
The case is in beautiful condition, like the guitar.
