1963 Fender Telecaster Guitar(Serial No. L10982) Excellent condition. This is the classic Telecaster blond/butterscotch finish. Has the spaghetti black logo and single string tree on the peghead. Neck is dead straight with a nice and slightly chunky "B" profile. Has the original frets that have been dressed but are still playable. Good rock and roll guitar, not real twangy. Original hardware and electronics, with no routes and no repairs. One tuner is replaced with a reissue. Black bottom pickups, pots date to 40th week of 63. The switch tip was replaced decades ago with a clear tip, and the original owner engraved his initials in the top on one knob and "1961" in the top of the other. Has the four large numbers stamped under the guard which supposedly indicates a 1960s era factory refin. Has an original white guard which may be late 60s as well. There is a shadow of a removed sticker on the top, shows some edge wear and scuffing but nothing through the finish. Nice light weight at 6.5 pounds. Just set up so it plays like butter. Good vintage single string tree Telecasters with original pickups and no routes are getting harder to find and here's a chance to get a nice one - and it sounds good, too! Comes with a late 60s logo Fender case with one broken latch.
