    Hi I recently bought this Partscaster from some one who got it in a trade. It appears to me from research to be a MIJ deluxe telecaster from the 90s . But is this bridge from an actual 51-52 tele? C7C9171E-7D4E-4393-82C8-5A00FCB8DCAE.jpeg D42B2DEC-F4E9-4991-92F5-A82F04A37080.jpeg D42B2DEC-F4E9-4991-92F5-A82F04A37080.jpeg

    Cool guitar! I love those EMG pickups.

    Seems unlikely that the bridge would be from an actual 51 Tele. But you never know...

    No it's a vintage reissue bridge from the 80's. The dimple below the serial number indicates it's not original.
