All original Fender Tele dating to 1975 in a clean tuxedo black. Aside from the few marks on this instrument, it is basically fresh from the factory with the original case(in amazing condition) and bridge cover (ashtray). This tele is pre 76' so it has all the sought after features as the early 70's and late 60's teles. The Serial number is on the back and the pickups are not waxed to death. If you want an vintage tele with all the same tone and feel without spending 10k+... this is a great instrument. This thing plays amazing and has absolutely no problems or issues. It has a fresh set of 10's on a dead straight neck, lots of life in the frets and perfect action and intonation. Tons of sustain and you can get awesome tones ranging from jazz to blues to hard rock in the bridge position. You can't go wrong with a classic instrument in an all original and clean condition, your owning a piece of history as well as a macho player and a great investment. Thank you for looking

Condition: Excellent and all original shape for its age. Clearly pictured are a few dings on the top, on the back there is some light scratching around the string ferrules, however the back looks completely mint from a distance, and the scratches are only noticeable under intense light.l However none of the cosmetic issues affect any structural integrity or playability and still looks gorgeous. The finish is in great condition with no peeling and shiny and glossy. The neck still feels smooth not sticky and the fretboard and headstock are preserved without any cosmetic issues and the frets have plenty of life. Over all a 9/10 for a vintage guitar.

All original pickups and pots that date to 1975  Pickups are very distinct and sweet, bridge pickup is a force to reckon with. These pickups are super lively with slight microphonic qualities which were later heavily potted from 76' and on. During this time fender did not want to have any microphonic problems so started slathering wax on all their pickups which completely choked them out and strangled the tone out. This 75' has the same pickups as the older teles with tones of tone and sustain, winded around the bobbins with space between for the pickups to really breathe and capture the whole spectrum of sound resonating in this thick alder body.
