This Eau-Natural Swamp Ash bodied Telecaster is really a really nice find. The serial number dates her to circa 1977-1978, however, the pots show 1979. They appear original, so the most likely answer is that this guitar had been stored in the Fender facility for a year or two, before electrical assembly. Fender were synonyms for doing that back in the day.

She plays like a dream, with an ultra straight neck & low action

Very clean all-round body & neck, with no heavy scarring anywhere. To say she is circa 38 years old, this is one clean guitar.

Comes complete with a really nice vintage ‘Pear-Drop’ hard case, which is quite a rare piece in itself.

If you are looking for a really clean, playable piece of vintage stock with a great mojo, then this is the girl for you.
