So here is my Telecaster. It is currently in Italy, but I will bring it to Sweden in August. I do not know much about this particular model, since the previous owner had it in his attic for years and he did not know anything about it apart that it was "old" (that is exactly what he said "I have a guitar, but it is old so I do not know if you will like it" ) When I got it I took it to a guitar shop in Bologna to clean it and the guy immediately offered me double the money I bought it for to have it for himself. He said he does not see these guitars that often. Anyway, when I got it I had no idea of what it was since I had just started taking guitar lessons (I was 16). The first time I realized I had something very nice in my hands was when I met my guitar teacher - a very talented guy in his 40s. He could not believe his eyes... and gave me his guitar to practice because he wanted to play mine so bad So here it is. Thanks to the serial number I found out that the guitar is from the 77 or 78 (I could not get more precise information). The sound is just amazing and touches your heart. I have not been playing guitar for the last 12 years, but I still remember its sound. And some weeks ago I decided I want to restart playing. I still have many questions about this guitar and its story. I also have no idea about the case I got with it. There is written "for Fender" on it, so I do not know who made this one. I believe I cannot consider it an original Fender case, right? Does any of you know more about this? Any help is highly appreciated. I would like to find out as much as possible because I am so fascinated by this instrument. ps: do not mind about the ugly super long strings in the pictures. Those are new ones that my brother had just put up.
