A fantastic playing Telecaster and an early example of a “Whiteguard” model! This transition year features the new White pickguard but retains the early features like a soft “V” neck shape, flat pole bridge pickup, and a beautiful see-thru “Blonde” finish. The neck of this guitar appears to have been oversprayed but the body finish is entirely original. The guitar also includes the original Tweed hardshell case. A fantastic sounding example with the perfect neck and resonant Ash body, it just doesn’t get much better than a Telecaster from this era! VG w/OHSC $35,500.
