This 1972 Fender Telecaster sets a couple of records for the LATEST leftover 60s features found on a 1970s guitar. December of 1972 is THE latest neck date i have ever sen stamped during the early 70s transitional period. Not only that the original pots with original solder joints contain one of the lastest guitars w/ a 1966 pot code 1376648 on one and a 1970 pot code on the other. (I recently had a 4 bolt Strat with the same scenario stock).
This Tele has all original parts and the frets are a little low but very playable. Weighs in at JUST at 8 + 3/4 lbs so while not a feather certainly no albatross and just enough meat to give up some real balls when you need it and light enough for those sensitive moments ( :-) ). The only thing missing (and i am working on it) is 1 string ferrule on the Low E. You'll see a dark area coming off the end of the decal. Those are merely grain stripes.
Came in an acoustic case so i added a 50th Anni Strat case to the mix. (see pics)
Pay Pal, Cash, Personal Check, Money Order/Cashier's check, Wire transfers or Western Union. Pay Pal and wire transfers are offered as a convenience for far away buyers and all extra expenses are the customer's responsibilty. Unless i price my guitars up with some of the really big dealers theres not enough profit in Vintage guitars to pay out 3.9% additional. If you need to pay with a credit card there is still a way though i don't take them directly .... and that is that Pay Pal will take the card and pay me through normal services. Any time that a deposit is taken for any special arrangements or "holds" it is non refundable. To have these rules work in your favor all transactions need to be completed or deposited on w/in 5 days.
Buyer pays shipping. Shipping will be determined on a case by case basis so as to include size, weight, distance, insured amount and method requested. Shipping is paid by customer both ways on any returns.
All parties buying through the mail or offsite are allowed a 48 hour approval/inspection period on ALL guitars, unless discussed otherwise, to make sure they are keeping their purchase (but not amps to keep shipping delicate amps back and forth to a minimum and not on parts either ... too many guys doing "switcharoo's" or wrecking them trying to install them, break them and then trying to send them back ... sorry ... you have to reap the behavior of so many others). Buyer pays shipping. Payments must be received within 5 working days of anything placed on HOLD. When you receive the guitar your 48 hour return includes 2 days to receive it and approve or not and you MUST contact me. WE DO STRICTLY adhere to these rules. I don't mean to sound tough here but you would be amazed at the liberties taken in recent past! Thanks for your understanding and adherence. If an instument is put on hold and any special arraingements have been made like a deposit and hold followed up by another payment that is considerd a sold instrument since it has been taken off of the market for other possible buyers. Its not fair to us to hold it off the market and then decide against it so make sure to ask ALL questions and we will be thrilled to give you an in hands description. The same poicy holds true if you have us change the guitar (like "set it up for left handed etc ...). If that kind of work is done thats on an instrument that is a done deal also. Thanks. ALL Outside the USA sales are FINAL due to extended "visits" through customs and some countries laxed attitude about shipping on time.
