1951 Fender Telecaster Blonde
The guitar was bought in 2012 at Guitarpoint and hasn´t get any playtime since.
Here is the original description :
There is a little story on this Instrument, as it is a all original 51 Telecaster with untouched solderpoints and no changed parts, but the neck dates to 1954(!).
We got it from the owner who bought this Tele already in the early 80s like it is. Maybe some previous owner traded necks because the original 51 neck was to big!
The 54 neck is definitely original and blacklights correct, the frets have been changed, the fretboard has been leveled to a bigger radius.
The front of the fretboard has been refinished after the refret, the back of the neck as well as the headstock (front and backside) show its original finish under blacklight.
Unfortunately not the matching neck ! But big sounding and very resonant Instrument!
Included it´s rare original Thermometer case!
