Bikes vs geetars, really? :p
Seriously, no offense my friend… I just don’t have the patience to read all that stuff about bikes.
My understanding is that period correct is referred as accurate repro stuff, or historically correct if you prefer.
Actual real stuff from the...
That's gorgeous! You're a lucky man and I'm jealous!!! :eek:
Take good care of her. :)
I avoid this kind of people like the plague, and if one of my friend start saying this kind of BS, out of my life he/she goes, which happened...
How about being patient and saving money so you can buy a vintage Tele? :rolleyes::twisted::lol:
Are you happy with the way it sounds? I love my 5f2a, although I wish sometimes it had a reverb.
Oh, I didn't know this new color, thanks for the info. :)
It sure looked very pale for a Sea Foam Green!!!
One more vote for 7
And BTW, the name of the color is Sea Foam Green, NOT Sea Foam Cream... ;)
Oups, yes, I forgot the rosewood Telecaster(s).
It's safe to say though, that this model was the only one with a b/w/b pickguard.
Or was there...
Pretty sure there weren't any b/w/b guards in 65.
They appeared in 76, IIRC.
It looks to me like Maui Blue, a color used for the international series in 1981.
How they called this color in 1968, I don't know.
Nothing wrong with a vintage guitar that is no longer all original.
When it needs maintenance, you have it done the right way so you can keep...
Have the maintenance it needs - e.g. a refret - done by a competent luthier, and take good care of it.
You're lucky man!
Why taking it apart? I’m in the camp of those who avoid taking necks and bodies apart unless absolutely necessary, particularly...
Old, I don't know, but wise, certainly! ;)
Good point. Yes, be very careful!!!
Wrong body shape for 72/73.
I'm pretty sure the D/G string tree is not original, it was added at some point.
Maybe not 68, but 69/70 is a good guess.
My 71 serial nr is 3434xx.
Burgundy Mist. Rare color. More valuable. Beautiful guitar.
1 string tree was added, too bad.
A luthier can fill the hole and do a touch up. I...
Incredible guitar!!! if you had told me that purple pearloid pickguards do exist, I would not have believed you!
This link above shows another...
You must be able to find videos easily on YouTube that will show you how to do it yourself. Nice guitar, congrats!
I too have lots of personal experience validating the opposite opinion. Sorry, but you have to be deaf or play only with distortion to say this....
Yep, hard to decide between these 2 colors…
Yes, an ash body should be refinished in blond.
However, if you chose to go with the aged Firemist...
I rarely play with a pick, and only for strumming on my acoustic guitar.
Besides, I prefer the sound I get with my fingers.
