£2450

Recommended Posts

1978 Fender Telecaster Custom and Original Fender Case.

Time to sell this lovely example. It’s in great condition and with the exception of a couple of saddle screws, all original.

Although it is often quoted online, that the seventies Fenders are all heavy and poorly put together with sloppy fitting necks etc.  this forty year old guitar definitely does not fall in to that category.

The neck is a lovely fit in the pocket. The controls work faultlessly. All hardware is present and correct, including the original ash     tray/bridge cover.

Truss rod functions as it should.

The weight is 8lb 6oz.

The one piece body looks great. Finish is good with a few dings and buckle rash.

The pick guard is all intact, with slight buckling and a scratch, which should all be visible in the photos.

The neck is comfortable and the radius is 7.25.

Width at nut is 42.25 mm.

Frets are still very good, with just a little grooving under the G, to the first few. Tuning, playing and intonation are not affected.

The case is in great condition and all latches work perfectly.

 

Plenty of photos attached, which will hopefully show all the details that you need.

 

I looked for a long time to find a good vintage Tele and have been very happy with my purchase. Reason for sale is that I’m only gigging on bass, my guitar playing is just at home, for my own enjoyment and my Tribute G&L is all I really need for that at the moment. 

 

Price is £2,450, which I’m hoping is right given the age and great condition. I will consider decent offers.

Collection much preferred, I’m in Herts.

If postage is required I will provide a costing to include insurance cover.

Cash or Bank Transfer ideally, although I can take Pay Pal payment if you cover the fees. I’m not suggesting friends/family, whereby you get no protection but rather paying slightly more to cover the fees. Happy to discuss this.

 

 

Any questions, offers, or if additional photos are required just message me.

Thanks Mick. My wife is very understanding and is quite happy to have a few instruments dotted around the lounge, but at the moment it's basses that are out of their cases and guitars tucked away. :)
