This is a fabulous Fender Telecaster that was made in the USA in 1955. This stunning instrument plays and sounds as good as it looks. The original blond finish shows normal play wear and finish checking but is in overall nice shape for an instrument that is 60+ years old. This guitar is all original except for the low E tuner and the lead pickup has been rewound. This instrument was sold new in 1955 to a musical equipment rental business where it remained for many years. After that business closed the guitar remained in the family of the owner of that business until it was sold to us. When we acquired it the guitar was all original except for one tuning peg. Also the lead pickup was dead and we had it rewound. Curiously the lead pickup has flat pole pieces which normally ended in early 1955 but we believe it to be original. The guitar is otherwise all original and it comes with its original tweed case.
