My first band was in 1987... I was all of 20 playing with a bunch of old musicians in their 30's. Lol. The other guitarist had a red Tele, the first Tele I ever played. The guitar was barely 20 years old, like me, hardly vintage, yet. Fast forward 30 years and now I own my first Tele and I asked him about his. He had to sell it 15 years ago but misses it now. His recollection is that it's a 1965, Dakota Red. He insisted it was all original, but the 6 saddle bridge says otherwise. Were b/w/b guards available in 65?
