I never realised I had a vintage Tele until now. So nice that TDPRI picked pre '74. For me this was the one that started it all in September 1973. Started life as a standard blonde, and still has all its original bits. After I'd used and abused it for a while it was a sorry sight, so I had it refinished in 1981. The colour has faded & "greened" a bit since then, but still looks good.
