Hey buckshot09.....Welcome to the Forum!!
I also have a 1983 Telecaster that I picked up right from the factory as a friend of mine had a music store in Garden Grove, Ca. and I got it through him. Mine was/is a top loader with a sunburst finish. I've heavily modified it over the years to what you see in the shot. I hope yours serves you as well as mine had for almost thirty years.........JH in Va.
