I picked this guitar up this week, thought I'd share...I worked in a music store around 85-86, when these first came out, or at least that's when I was first made aware of them. I always liked them a lot but never managed to snag one until now (I did have a non-bound TL62 for a long time). This one has the "A" SN on the bridge plate, which I understand to be pretty useless for dating purposes, and no date stamp on the neck, so it's kind of a mystery guitar as far as age. It has a little bit bigger neck than I remember most of the TL62's having, pickups/pots/switch all look original and untouched. The jack plate has been replaced with an electrosocket. The neck pup is pretty microphonic, so I'll probably put a set of OVs I have in it for now. Looks like a Basswood body, pretty light, weighs in at 7.4. Thought about converting to an Esquire as one of my favorites from the ones I tried working in the store way back when was a CAR Esquire, but I'll probably leave it a Tele for now.
