    Man, I got to get out more! Here's a sweet '52 Tele in my own backyard and I 've never heard of its existence. Not to mention an amp tech/builder too! Congrats on a fine score.

    So what's the neck shape like? Always curious about real blackguards and their necks. Is the neck Hugh? Or a nice chunky price of wood, or a little s Allen than you would have thought?

    Probably the worst guitar for you to have as a test of how your amps sound! You could put that Tele through the worst amp going around and it'd still sound great.

    I've only ever seen her signature on a piece of masking tape, inside the control cavity, on 53' and newer guitars. My guess would be 1953
