1953 FenderTelecaster – Blond

Here we have a wonderful Blackguard with a bit of personality! This 1953 Fender Telecaster in Blond has been “bedazzled” with some reflective mylar tape on the pickguard and the control plate.The tape can easily be removed without damaging the guitar, but we love the look! The neck has been played in beautifully for a smooth comfortable feel, and the first 5 frets were replaced to keep it playing great. There was the start of a crack in the body under the pickguard, but was filled with glue and is completely stable.

Overall Condition: 7.5, neck finish gently played off, edge wear throughout and patina brings this to its current rating
