We never get tired of seeing original Blackguards, just like this 1953 Fender Telecaster in original blond finish! This guitar has been well loved and used, as reflected in the beautiful patina and marks around the body. This particular example has all of the earlier Telecaster characteristics before a host of changes in 1954, such as serial number stamped into the bridge plate, round top knurled knobs, and round tip switch tip. The neck is in great playing condition, with a nicely worn in back profile, and original frets in fine shape! The guitar on its own is incredibly resonate and loud, and really sings through the two nicely voiced pickups. The neck pickup is rated at 7.25K, and the bridge is rated at 5.86K. The original nut has been replaced to ensure great playing for years to come!
It weighs in at 7 lbs 1 oz, and comes with replica hardshell Tosch case, best replica available for the original!
