1978 FenderTelecaster (Lefty) – Sunburst

For all you southpaws out there, here we have this wonderful 1978 Fender Telecaster in Sunburst! This example has nice birdseye figureing throughout the neck, which pairs nicely with the beautiful Sunburst ash body. Whoever did the final assembly of this guitar at the factory fudged the second string tree placement a touch, but it has no impact on playability.
