Hi Tele friends. I've purchased a '72 thinline but the serial dates it as made in 1970 as its in the 28s 6 digit serial with large F 4 bolt neck. Tuxedo finish in lacquer finish with WRHB pups. Does anyone know exactly when Fender started selling with the humbuckers? Info tells me Seth started in 1970 and this is probably late 1970. Guitar hasn't arrived yet to pull apart and see what dates I've actually bought. But rosewood neck, humbuckers, double binding and 1970 serial make it all a bit of a mystery to me. It has truly been stored under a bed for 15 years and he guys has just chosen to sell it. Not sure what it is or how original but I love it. Neck looks genuine, hardware looks genuine but it might be refinished body although the chequering certainly makes it look like it might be original. I will know soon enough when it arrives but thought someone might be able to categorically tell me that the Seth Lovers weren't around until 71 etc. or maybe the serial high 28s puts it early 71 not 70 like the serial intel I have tells me.
