My Jimmy Page mirror tele and my A.O. 60’s came with a COA too.
I also say its likely MIM classic 50s tele body
I'm very glad you questioned the authenticity of this instrument, because I think you'd only be able to sell it on as parts if you kept it.
Mine did and I've owned two Thinskin Teles and one Strat from Wildwood. It's not in the bound cover, just a sheet of parchment colored paper.
I doubt a Thin Skin would say FSR.
I am pretty skeptical based on those photos.
It seemed fishy from the start. I buy and sell a lot of stuff because I have no self control and I have played enough AV teles to know something was up. I'm lucky to have gotten this one on Reverb so that I'm covered by the buyer protection, but people who sell things like this I say get away with it more often than not.
I agree with that it's likely a Lacquer 50s MIM body, I owned one and it had the crop circle route. I can't see all your pics, but I bet the neck is legit-ish (some pics are X-d out). Alpha pots and bad soldering? Not even the 50s Classic was like that, mine had CTS pots and a real switch. Bridge plate should have a V-serial number, if it was attached to the second run of '55 TS Teles, but it's just another part on a partscaster.
Here's what my Thin Skin AV '65 Jazzmaster neck and pocket look like.
Not a '58 AV either.
I can confidently say that it might be a Mexican Classic 50's Tele body..
Ive already seen six different mexican bodies that have body sticker numbers starting with "MO".. not to mention the crude neck pocket nail holes, etc.. My AVRI has a very clean neck pocket..
Also, if the body is the same as listed on the reverb link, Those neck plates should have the serial number of the guitar starting "V".. but the neck plate is blank..
Send it back and get a full refund if you can.. if its listed for a low price, its usually too good to be true.. unless you know what you're looking at..
I think we can confirm, this is a MIM Classic 50s body, probably the lacquer version.
That soldering work is rough. Yuck!
Sent it back! Seller was NOT happy, remember to always authenticate before dropping a lot of cash on a guitar!
Even though no CA, Fender will still provide a wealth of information, including the fact that it's a WW model. Just email the serial number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
