Closeup to show the character of agathis body wood. It has a delicate speckle. A 3TS like this (which is unfortunately not a current production option) shows it better than the antique burst which is darker and redder (and is available in current production). This example, which is my 1999 CII Squier Standard Tele, also seems a little more consistent in grain character across the body than my 2005 CII Squier Standard Tele in antique burst.
This view also shows the vintage bridge conversion. This plate has actually been on several of my Squiers and I had drilled it for toploading for one of them. But this Tele has been modified like my other Squiers for functional string throughs.
