It's a refin right?
Yes they did, from mid to late 56 until sometime in 62.
It depends of the year.
Black guard teles and early white guards came with a beige leather straps that look very different from the other Fender...
These straps with "fender"on the buckle were made after 1965. They came with most fender guitars and basses until the early/mid 70's
You probably know that since you are interested in this subject. Tom Wheeler's book, Fender Archives, includes a document of the production totals...
The geek in me would acquire some period correct strings as those in your case are from the 70's.
For the love of the telecasters and vintage guitars, I'd argue over the originality of a switch tip :cool:
Wood grain, yet less translucent...
I respect your opinion but fact is you are wrong. My only goal is to make you realise it.

Both the owner of the guitar in this thread as well as myself (owner of a 1960 Esquire) tell you that the color of this finish is blonde but you...
it's everything but a fender case from the 50's. It is certainly one of the reissue case from the 80's
It's blonde. As you seem to like guitarhq, read the specs for 1960 tele and esquires. You'll find the answer.
The guitar in this post is blonde. 1960 Telecaster and Esquire tend to have a less translucent finish. That's it.
A two years difference seems a bit high to me. There is often a few months difference between neck and body dates.
They also used on 1960 teles and esquires even though they had string through bodies. I have one on my 1960 esquire.
