I do repairs and setups in a music store in Powell River and I heard rumours of a guy finding a Tele in the dump. He finally came into the store wanting a setup done and sure enough it is true. He saw a guitar case at the dump and thought he'd grab it but when he did it was kind of heavy so he opened it up and inside was a MIJ Fender Telecaster. Apparently it had been in a leaky attic and had been wet. The nut and the frets are all short because the neck has swelled, and the headstock is kind of cloudy from the humidity. I did a basic setup to get started. It has a 5-way switch and a non-lipstick neck pickup but pretty nice sound. The switch wouldn't work on the neck alone so I pulled it apart and it's pretty rusty. I don't know what the letters beside the Logo are but they seem original. The back of the neck says "Made in Japan" and the serial number is on the bridge. I just wanted to share this true story.
