This fantastic-looking and playing 1954 Fender Telecaster comes in its original Blond finish. It is a great transitional example from the Bakelite “Blackguard” era into the later PVC/ABS white guards. This particular guitar features all original Blackguard features, such as a flat pole pickup and brass saddles, with the only differences being the neckplate serial number and the pickguard color. The neck has been worn nicely from years of playing for a comfortable feel up and down the neck. Although the fretboard has its fair share of wear, the overall piece is well preserved. It has original components, and the finish is in great condition with light playwear, patina, and checking throughout. It even sports its original tweed hardshell case, with the only replaced part being a later “ashtray” bridge cover.

Overall Condition: 7.5, fretboard and neckwear, checking and patina throughout the body
