Fender Telecaster USA 1975 The Real Deal Vintage Blues Machine (Strat Les Paul)Fender Telecaster USA 1975 The Real Deal Vintage Blues Machine (Strat Les Paul)

2nd owner- Rare 1974-75 Black Fender Telecaster- Bill Lawrence Pickups- very nice condition for a 43 year old Fender. Has orig. case and hang tag- Stored for 29 years (since 82) before being put back on the stage in 2011. It’s in awesome shape – no major dings, only two little scrapes on the bottom edges (pic) light surface scratches throughout and swirls..But the condition of the paint is amazing. You can tell it was stored for a long time and sealed in the case. It is incredibly comfortable to play with the contour body. All parts, body, bridge, serial # , tuners check out to 1974-75 . It is possible that this was a custom order for an artist* (see below). I just had this set up and the Bill Lawrence pickups wired with a new 5 position switch (original 3 position included)”Big Apple” style: treble/treble split/both humbucking/rhythm split/rhythm humbucking. the body was already pretty clean. Frets are very good (70-80%)There is some typical to moderate playwear on the sides of the neck – the neck is awesome, exactly what I like about a vintage tele. I’m not sure what wood the body is, probably Alder. Wil ship UPS insured. Lower 48 only.
