    I'm trying to get a picture of what years Fender lacquered the front of the '52 Reissue Tele pickguards.

    From my own experience, the years/models I've owned, are shown below:

    1982 - Not lacquered
    1999 - Lacquered
    2006 - Lacquered
    2007 - Lacquered
    2009 - Lacquered
    2011 - Not lacquered

    So what year's yours? And is the stock black pickguard lacquered on the front or not?
