Its a 1993 American Standard Telecaster with both pickups changed, the original would have been 2 single coils. Very nice.

thank you for your answer,
Do you think the color is "candy green" ?
what do you think about the argus of this guitar ?
Last question, do you know why there's empty space around the bridge pickup, on both side of the bridge ?
thank you

Welcome here! The colour is caribbean mist. The switch should be 5-way so you have a single coil option on both pickups. Like Chris H. said American Standard with both pups changed. Hope it sounds as good as it looks. Give her a tophat or barrel knob.

Well it is what belongs on a Telecaster, that white one is a strat knob. In night long discussions with my Teles they always refused to wear that knob. They said it looks like drinking a mug of beer with your little finger standing up.Just joking. The black ones are for men the white one are for girls,again joking. I think the seymour duncan is splitable, with a 5 way switch you you could opt for more sounds.Your english is fine.

Caribbean Mist 1993..... I have one of these. I am the original owner of mine. It is my favorite Tele...it has that perfect Tele tone. None of my other Tele's come close to it. Mine is all original...its too bad someone changed the pickups on that one.

The holes on each side of the bridge pickup area is not uncommon, usually referred to as 'butt crack' I think. It's pretty common to see it on the control knobs side but I don't remember seeing any on the top. It looks like its original routing, in that case the stock bridge plate is just a little too small and may or may not be factory origin. The saddle and bridge looks period correct though. Either way don't let it bother you, like I said many vintage / classic / great sounding guitars have them.

Yeah, the butt crack is common on vintage style Teles however ive never seen one on an American Standard/Series.
Has anyone else ever seen this before?
