All original Fender Tele dating to late 1970, pro refret with medium jumbos and a brand new black tolex hardshell case. 

Condition: Great shape for its age, original finish does exhbit wear and tear, dings and scratches scattered all over body and back clearly pictured, and a prominent scratch pictured on the side. There are a handful of chips along the edges of the body that expose wood. However none of the cosmetic issues affect any structural integrity or playability and still looks gorgeous. There is a good amount of scratching on the back left side on the body and a couple dings on the back of the neck, but the neck still feels smooth and lacquery. The fretboard and headstock are preserved without any cosmetic issues and the frets have plenty of life. Over all a 7/10 for a late 1970's tele.

All original pickups and pots that date to 1970, however there was an unoriginal harness that was put in, then returned back to its original harness, thus the solder joints are not original, and the lead wires to the neck pickup were changed to cloth wire reminiscent of 60's fenders.  Pickups are very distinct and sweet, bridge pickup is a force to reckon with.
