I am a new forum member and I would like to ask your help on a guitar that I've had since 1980. At the time I had the telecaster that I had bought new in 1974 and a Les Paul Deluxe that I thought I had to have. I met a guy at the theater we were playing in and he had this telecaster, but he was a rocker and I was a country guy. We just traded heads up and I haven't seen him since. When I got the guitar it had a Boogie body on it. He told me that everything was original except the body, pickguard and it had Schaller tuners. Back then, and especially between him and, original didn't mean much. It was a couple weeks that a friend of mine pointed out the difference in the headstock logo. duh! The original body supposedly had been made into a double cutaway, Boogie body put on, and original body went to the dumpster. I was supposed to get the old tuners and pickguard, but didn't and didn't pursue it. A friend of mine had a music store and was a Fender dealer at the time, so I bought a new pickguard and a set of tuners. In about a month he called and said that he was supposed to get a couple of bodies from a guy he new that parted out guitars. When he got them, one was obviously a mid 70's because of the cut on the shoulder and the lack of a diagonal rout. (He new all of this, not me). The one that I bought seemed more period correct and was a good fit. The pickups were weak and I sent them to Seymour Duncan and he said that he hand wound them to whatever was correct for that period. The neck nor the body have any date marks on them. I didn't care, I just played it. It was my 6 night a week guitar. Fast forward to 1991. The Duchossoir book came out and I started getting interested in vintage guitars and wondering what I had. I guess it would be called a partscaster, but I have just called it the "59". If you guys would be so kind as to help me figure what I have I would really appreciate it. By the way, this is the first time since 1981 that the pickguard has been off or the control plate. (I think previous owner said pots had been changed along with capacitor. Original cap. was in the case and I gave it to Vince Cunetto)Neck has not been disturbed since I put it on this body, but I remember that it had no date.
