    I wanted a match to the scarce very first 1959 Telecaster Customs with hard C necks and silver " Telecaster " decals that preceded the the gold " Custom Telecaster " decals.
    I also considered a very early white single ply guard but I decided on the '59 hard C neck with silver " TELECASTER " decal and mint triple ply guard as a tribute to my favorite all time 1959 Fender.

    Simply beautiful. Happy you got just what you wanted. Is that a one-piece body?
    I love my '63 Time Machine Tele with the thinner neck (.79 first fret and .93 at twelfth). But I also have a Tele with a neck more like yours (.875 and .95, respectively), and I like it too.

    Thank you. I can't see a seam on the body but I can't say for sure that it is one piece.
