I've been after an '83 Tele for a hot minute now. I've cruised this forum, other forums, placed wanted ads, checked craigslist, ebay and reverb religiously and just never came across exactly what I wanted. Last week I came across a craigslist ad in Dallas, Texas for a sienna burst '83. I asked the seller to get me the neck stamp date and lo and behold it was even a Nov. 1983 (birth month and year). Seller was willing to ship to my state since I had been cruising all of USA's CL ads and it was one of the best transactions I've ever had online buying probably anything. I haven't had a chance to really clean it up yet but I get too excited not to share my Tele's.
