This 1952 Fender Telecaster was found in the barn after the original owner passed away. He bought it new and played it all his life. He refinished the guitar a couple of times and lost the original pickguard along the way.

I'm always a vintage Fender guitar buyer, but I'm especially looking for Fender Telecaster guitars from the 1950s and 1960s. You can contact me here to sell a vintage Fender guitar

1952 Fender Telecaster bridge plate

The original bridge has two cutouts on either sides of the saddles but I was unable to determine why. It appears that two half washers were welded to support the cutouts. It's always fun to buy vintage guitars like this.
