Why is "Vintage" defined as pre-1974 in this forum???

    I did some more searching... and if I can be believed back then, I chose 1973 as the cutoff date because the changes to the Tele body after 1973 were more dramatic. Especially the end of the "notch" at the neck pocket.

    I found some old threads of folks discussing it at the time.

    I hadn't put the model name to the guitar when you posted this, but I had a "TV yellow" SC-1 some years back and it was a pretty great guitar.
    At the time I thought it should have some value, and it wasn't exactly what I wanted in a guitar, so I tried to get money out of it for other gear.
    Sadly it brought pretty small money in maybe 2003 or so.

    Now they seem to bring a price though, mine was exactly the same as this one. I do still have the matching bass.

    That's the color I had. Geeze that's a big jump from the 40 bucks my folks spent when they found it at a yard sale years before. We had to move unexpectedly 7 or 8 years ago from a multilevel apartment and it was a nightmare. One of many mishaps was the snapping of the neck of my SC-1. I was crushed about it. I parted some stuff out, but gave up on what was left. I still don't like to talk about that part, but it is what it is...

    I think it's fine. This vintage forum has always been pretty cool about people posting post74 fenders.

    The thing I always think of is my 75 Tele Deluxe. Aside from the fact that the reissues are called 72 deluxe and the originals have "73" stamped on the heel, it was a newly established model at the time of the cutoff.
