This is a 1969 Fender Telecaster..Serial #253128..It weighs in at 9.1 lbs.
The original blond finish has been removed, but can be seen under the pickguard and neck plate. It feels like it has a light clear coat of something on it, and actually looks/feels pretty good.
Other than the finish, the guitar appears to have all its original parts with the pots dating to the 48th week of 66 and the neck to October of 69.
The neck pickup reads 7.02K and the bridge 6.02K..They actually balance well.
The guitar is set up with 10's and plays very nice...The frets are in good shape and have tons of life left. The original case is also in good shape...
The body finish is the only thing that has been modified...pickups, parts, tuners, and neck finish are original.
This is a good one...
