Up for sale, a set of genuine vintage Fender gold hardware, correct for a Telecaster produced in the first half of the 1960s. While the neck plate that went with this hardware set has already sold (dating early '66), this set included a gold plated patent pending Tele bridge plate, control plate, ferrules, and string tree, along with a modern jack cup.

The bridge plate still has clean and vibrant plating, with no gold on the height adjustment screws, which weren't plated on genuine vintage examples. The knurled metal saddles are surprisingly clean as well, and all four stock mounting screws are included.

The control plate shows more moderate wear and has a couple very slight bends, although it still mounts flush with a Tele body. The ferrules also show only light patina, as does the original string tree and mounting screw. For the sake of offering a complete set of parts, a modern gold jack cup is included as well.
