This is by far the Lightest Weight late 1970s/1980s Tele we have ever encountered. At 7.35 pounds this guitar is a welcomed anomaly. An early 1981 Tele still with all the 1970s features including a S8 serial number, as commonly seen during the time period. A beautiful 1950s look with a very transparent Blonde finish over a figured Ash body, Black pickguard, slightly larger rounded neck profile of the time period, 1377810 dated pots, and Chrome Hardware. Neck pickup is a Duncan '54 Tele pickup with original bridge pickup intact. A ghost sticker in the arm overhang area that is less apparent in person then the pictures would suggest. Cosmetically pretty clean condition displaying some light playwear. Included is a time period Fender hardshell case.
