Howdy from Texas y’all! First time posting and am hoping you all can educate me a bit on some questions I have about my MIJ ‘52 reissue Tele. Hoping the pics Help a bit. Some of the things I’m not sure about... 1. there’s a really thin brown wire going into the bridge pickup slot that’s not connected to anything. What’s that for? Should it be soldered to something? 2. no markings on either pickup. Can I assume those are stock then? Seller said neck pickup was a “dragonfire tele” pickup. 3. the bridge pickup has a copper looking plate on the bottom. I’ve read this is a common “mod” on Teles. Is this original? 4. the bridge plate says “fender pat. Pending” but there’s no serial number, and it also appears to be “notched” on the high E side. Can I assume this isn’t the original bridge plate? 5. I took the neck off in search of an actual serial number but couldn’t find one. Both body and neck are stamped TL-52. Is there any other way to accurately date the year of this guitar? thanks in advance!
