Once again, I come with a question I haven't been able to answer on my own

    About a week ago, one of my buddies said he say "a light colored tele, with a lightr colored binding" having never seen one myself at least not made by Fender I started looking around. He said it was pretty beat up looking but he wasn't sure if it was relic'd or just beat to ****. Only other possible identifier was what he said looked like a Fender Anniversary sticker. Again, having not seen it myself I couldn't say. Any thoughts? (besides "next time tell your buddy to ask the owner what it is")

    I'm thinking maybe it's the Fender 50’s Mary T. Custom Telecaster in Vintage Blonde, I have one in Crimmson.. also comes in blue.. It's my #1.. Very limited run, understand just a few dealers in the North East had them..

    These light blue ones are always hard to spot the binding, at least on a computer monitor.
