    Early 1973 Blonde Fender Telecaster..

    This guitar certainly looks the part. The iconic combination of blonde finish, ash body and maple neck is certainly well represented here. This is a stunning example which really showcases the ash grain, an uncommon sight during the CBS period.

    The neck has been finished in poly and is in remarkable condition, hardly a mark and unfaded.

    Hardware and plastics are in excellent condition.

    Electrically everything looks correct without any sign that solder joints having been disturbed. Pots read week 48 of 1972.

    The guitar comes with a Fender badged tolex hardshell case.

    Our previous experience with 70's tele has been somewhat on the shrill side, almost certainly from the fact that they were fitted with 1 Meg pots during this period. This guitar on the other hand delivers that classic tele tone without taking your head off. The neck pickup has that chewy quality that holds its own so well when combined with the bridge pickup. Once in that bridge position, there is a depth to the sound which is so uniquely Telecaster and flies in the face of your expectations of this guitar.

    These 70's Fenders can be surprising. With tone and looks like this, it goes to show you should never prejudge a guitar before its on your lap. Grab it before it gets away.
