    1957 Fender Telecaster Natural Solid Body Electric Guitar, Serial # -22548. 1957 Fender Telecaster in survivor 1970's condition. The body has been stripped and hippy stained. The neck appears to be an older refinish as well with a reproduction decal. The body date is 9-57 but there is no neck date. The electronics and pots date to the 4th week of 1957. The neck is a Soft V, as it should be in early '57. The bridge pickup has been altered with strat-style G & D pole pieces. There is solder on the copper plate that has been redone in an amateur fashion. The frets appear to be original and are very flat and will need to be replaced sooner than later. The decal is a reproduction as well as the tuners. 7.4 lbs. Original hard case included. Condition: Fair.
