    60s Classic Rosewood Tele. Came to me with huge parts of the finish lifting so I removed it all with a hairdryer and my bare hands.

    Is that solid alder under the rosewood veneer? Can we see a picture of the back? That looks really unique, body matching the neck; I like it!

    Very nice! It reminds me of a pair I made in 1987 using 1/8" rosewood on mahogany. They were the best ones I made and I wish I hadn't sold them.

    Those Squier CV's play nicer and look better than 90% of the MIM's I've played.

    I think they were too good and Fender moved the production to Indonesia to keep the price/quality in line with where Squiers are supposed to be.

    My two latest partscaster's. The dark one might be my best so far out of all the ones I have put together.

    Just been to my local guitar shop and found this for sale.

    A Fender Telecaster Elite Series from 1983. Never seen one before.
