I have a 72 single tree notched telecaster, It was my fathers he bought it around 1980 out of a trunk of a car for 150 bucks. The story goes before then it had been disassembled placed in a box and stored in a barn. Which is crazy to me being an 8 year old guitar at the time. I’m not sure if it was stripped or not but my father had a buddy at a local car shop paint it in white imron which will survive past Keith Richards The finish actually looks decent. Anyway the way my father tells me is all the parts came with it but I know some are replacements.( once I can figure out how to post pictures I’ll have to get your kind folks opinions) he also tells me that the headstock never had a logo on it. The thing that puzzles me is that the headstock feels natural and unfinished ( have no idea why an 8 year old guitar would have had this stripped) so I’m wondering if it’s possible that it has worn off. My father did put a replacement decal on it in the 80s but has since worn off again. ( back then my dad said you could go to a fender dealer and they’d have a binder full of waterslides didn’t have to send fender any information like you have to today to get a legit replacement) Did fender put the decal on top of the finish in 72 ? When did they start finishing over the decal?
