    My 63 Blond refin weighs 6.5 lbs. I was told when I bought it that it was probably a custom color originally. If so wouldn't the body be Alder? Since this is such a light guitar and I've seen the control cavity, I think it might be Ash. I'm bringing up a thread with pics. Regardless it's a keeper.

    Judging by the pics on the other thread, your tele would have originally been blonde presuming the pickguard is the original one (as it appears to be). Being blonde it would be an ash body.

    White singleply = blonde
    3 ply = custom colours or sunburst
