    Hi, I'm puzzled over the question what the color of the the side dot markers was on 1967 Telecaster rosewood necks. Any input and photos are appreciated. Thanks

    My 66 esquire has white, although they are not bright as they once were...especially on dark stages

    Anybody heard of 1967 necks that for some reason had black side dots? The seller is saying that there was a very short transition period where the side dots have been black only in 1967. Any information on that would be very helpful
