    I’m not certain, maybe 2009.

    I posted on the Vintage Tele Forum, and I asked if they thought a Road Worn '50s fretboard wear looked authentic, and the resounding answer was NO!!!!!

    Every response said that my attached photo of my 2011 model (as well as a 2008 model) looked fake because there was no literally no wear from fret 9 to fret 12, and when you think about it, we do play in those areas as well :)

    So exactly how do I perform the work on those areas to make them match the other wear?


    Thanks,
    Jerry

    I just wanna say, I've owned maybe 40-50 Teles over the years... I had a Highway 1 I really loved, but my favorites of all time have been the Road Worn series! Best Tele ever in my opinion. I like the older ones with more wear to the body.

    My 2010 Roadworn has evolved over the years. The tuners were replaced with Gotoh Relic Kluson style, Bakelite style pickguard, compensated brass saddles, CS '51 Nowcaster pickups, fully rewired with vintage cloth wire with repro wax capacitor, milled jack socket, AV 52 switch tip and all screws have been replaced with aged slotted screws.
