    1960 Fender Telecaster Custom Red Solid Body Electric Guitar, Serial # 48404. Body and neck are both dated 5-60 but have been re-finished. Control plate, pots switch and cap are all original. Pots date to the 14th week of 1960. Bridge and bridge pickup are correct but the neck pickup is a repro. Two screw holes have been filled in on the face of the headstock. Evidence of past installation of Schaller tuners with holes filled in on the back of the headstock and washer circles around posts on the front. Correct style reproduction tuners are currently installed. Frets appear to be original or possibly a very high quality re-fret with no signs of work done. Body is cherry stained with original binding. Input jack has been changed to a Gibson style piece. Pickguard appears to be original but has been foil tape lined. Foil tape is also present in the neck pickup cavity and channel route. Excellent candidate for a professional restoration with most original parts present and accounted for. Original hard case included. Condition: Fair.
