Hi all I'm new here and happy to have found the site, as I've had questions about my guitar for years. I bought it used in 1981 when I was a teenager in a punk rock band. It was advertised as a "1972 Fender Telecaster". I knew nothing about guitars at the time, except that Fender was a reputable company. It was my sole guitar throughout the 80s when I played in several bands and toured the country, putting my poor guitar through all sorts of abuse which I now regret, but it was a workhorse and survived it all, hardly ever even going out of tune the entire time. Eventually many players commented that what I had was a "Telecaster Custom". I started researching my guitar once I had internet access in the mid-90s, and realized something odd, which is that the headstock says "Fender Telecaster", but doesn't say "Custom" anywhere on it like every other one I've ever seen a photo of. The serial number on the plate is 374***, and it appears to be a Custom in every sense except for that detail. I don't know the guitar's history before 1981, so it's possible that the previous owner swapped the neck for some reason, but I'm wondering if there might be some other reason why it wouldn't say "Custom" on it? As in, did they all have the "Custom" decal, or were some sent out without it? I've attached a current photo. Hopefully it works. Thanks in advance.
