Originality: All parts original to the guitar except the volume pot (1980 date code, CTS brand), one string tree screw, and the strings.
Condition: Excellent. This guitar has been played but well taken care of. There is some light fret wear but nothing that impedes playing. Light wear on the edge of the fretboard is also present.
Playability: Excellent. I've just completed a full set up and it's a joy to play. Both pickups are full and strong with good output. The truss rod works perfectly.
Notes: It's so rare to find clean vintage Fender workhorse guitars like this so I snag every one I come across. This one has been played but carefully preserved. It's even got its original case, hang tags, bridge cover, and case key. I'm confident you'll love this clean 1975 Fender Telecaster Custom.
