    This guitar certainly looks the part. Classic natural finish, this guitar certainly cuts a striking figure combined with the maple fretboard. What's more, this one is in near MINT condition with original case.

    The neck has been finished in poly as is usual for 1978 good shape, a few marks and wear to give it that distinctive tele look.. The fretboard shows some  signs of wear and the original frets have plenty of life left in them. 

    Hardware is still pretty much gleaming, as new condition. The plastics are in just the same order too.

    Electrically everything looks correct without any sign that solder joints have been disturbed. Pots are dated week 9 of 1978.

    The guitar comes with its correct 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 which is so uniquely Telecaster and flies in the face of your expectations of this guitar.

    At just 3.79Kg it is not a monster weight too which can often be the case with Teles from this era.

    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...
