Description

    1950 - 1968 Fender Telecaster Refinished Solid Body Electric Guitar, #PP0898. Very early tele body which appears to have been crudely modified, sent to Fender around 1967 to be refinished, then chiseled away at again! Has neck pocket date of 1950 though this is not necessarily verified. The neck date of 11-55 does appear correct. The neck has been re-finished and a later decal applied. The pots and pickups are older and have been in and out more than once by appearance. The bridge has a very early serial. The tuners are double line kluson deluxe from the mid to late 60's. Very unique parts tele. Sold in "as-is" condition. Original hard case included. Condition: Poor.
