My friend's partner asked for my help to get him a guit for his 50th. He's got a couple nice Stratoids, Warmoth and birds. I built him a 72 Custom a few years ago with a body I routed and MIJ neck. She said he's always checking out Telecasters 'those yellow ones with the black front'. Kept an eye out, collared this 2006 for $Au1600 or about US$1000 in a generic case with hangtag but minus some case candy. Got some very minor fret wear and one small ding in the neck. Really great weight, I'd say a bit over 7lb. Nice grain in neck and body. First owner kept it for wall display. Second owner couldn't bond with vintage fretboard - 'more of a Strat player'. This was 2/3rds the price of the next cheapest 52 I could find overseas. Sounds every bit as good as I remember my '02.
