This is an incredibly clean, and near mint / near museum quality 1975 Fender Telecaster with its original finish / color. It is NOT a refinish. Even though I am calling this “blonde”, it has a slightly more coffee / greyish color. The finish is not faded at all and is consistent throughout the top, bottom and the neck pocket.

There are other Telecasters from the 1970s in very good condition, but this isn’t one of them. This one is in pristine condition!

The serial number dates from around 1973-1974, but the neck stamp puts it more in the 1975 region. CBS-era guitars were often made this way, with bins of serial number plates that were used for a couple of years. I would rely more on the neck stamp with is: “DAVID P. 1303 2853”.

The Tele has all of its original hardware and the original case as well. The body is ash and the neck is all maple. The neck is the smoothest playing neck I’ve ever played on. It has all of the original lacquer and the frets are in excellent condition. This guitar came from a large private collection and it was seldom played. There is very little/minor edge wear on the back edge/side. The electronics, tuners, bridge, bridge cover, screws, pickguard, etc. is all original. There is minor wear on the fingerboard edges too. (see pictures).

The video: I played the Tele in all three pickup positions through a mid 1960s Fender Bandmaster. The pickups sound great. The bridge pickup is brighter than my Telecaster from the 1980s. The rhythm pickup sounds warm.

Serial number: 386567

The case is also in excellent condition with its original liner and Fender logo.
