This phenomenal 1957 Telecaster features a very unusual and highly figured flamed ash body! The original owner passed this instrument down to his nephew, who upon seeing signs of the gorgeous wood below the finish stripped the guitar to natural in his school’s shop class. The result is a visually striking instrument with the great tone that has made the “White Guard” Telecaster one of the most desired guitars amongst both players and collectors. The perfect “Soft V” shaped ’57 neck has been professionally refretted and makes this a stellar playing instrument. A replaced guard and Ron Ellis pickups make this the perfect 50’s Telecaster for a player. VG w/HSC $12,500.
