That’s gorgeous! Congratulations!
Heck of a guitar! Congrats!
Great score! Congrats on the '62. I love mine.
Thats a great score. I do visit pawnshops when I’m in the area, but never regularly. Maybe I should do it more often!
She knows that I’ve been chasing for this guitar for God knows how long.
Only girl in the family I’m afraid. Lol.
But after getting this, she said “okay, we got it, thats it, be content.”
I’m just figuring out that now. Its an absolute beauty to look at and a joy to play. It really is my dream telecaster. Nothing else will do
Hearing that story just makes me feel happy. Congrats on checking off one of your guitar goal boxes!
Congrats dude. That is one fine guitar. Classic Telecaster looks and style!
Congrats. Life is good.
The more you visit, the odds are better you're going to find killer deals.
Also, the more regularly you visit, the better you get to know the salespeople, managers, and owners.
Eventually they start alerting you to killer deals and/or alert to something amazing before it hits the floor.
I've been at that point with most shops in my area.
I've scored some amazing guitars and basses consistently over the the last 10+ years.
FAKE!........................joking, really mean jealous, and then some! A genuine steal.
Congrats, nice horn! Always one I wanted. I have the Fender Japan version.
I need approval of the missus! Lol. The street thats lines with a couple of pawnshops with tons of guitars is easily on my bike route to work. But they’re already closed by the time I get there after work!
I actually need to send the serial number to Fender for authenticity purposes. Serial number starts with V followed by 6 numbers on the neck plate. There’s no “Made in USA” anywhere. But that V serial number gave it away for me. Pawnshop owners didnt have a real clue on what they have.
As of now, i have no doubts. It has the brown G&G case lined with gold/yellow fabric. An orange capacitor of some sort, and unused bridge cover plate.
Body looks like three piece nicely matched. Light as a feather, with pickup routes for single pickup on the neck, not a huge swimming pool that can accommodate humbuckers.
Two dates on the neck. On the neck heel its June 2004, on the bottom which sits on the body has Nov 2004. Will take photos of everything soon.
Didnt notice that the case latches still have plastic on them. For a guitar that has 2004 dates on the neck, I’m not sure if this has been out of the house or played even.
Neck has a super nice amber tint. The neck tint on the Squier CV60 is my favorite tint, but this one has the best I’ve ever seen.
An the unused bridge plate cover. Looks really delicious with it on, but who leaves them on while playing??
After some cleaning, took off the strings and put 11’s, did my initial set up (final tweaks will be done by my luthier), adjusted the truss rod to accommodate 11’s, and viola. The guitar I will take to my grave if my son doesnt take up guitar.
PS its the most beautiful tricolor sunburst I’ve seen so far.
I already told sorry to my dog for the hours/days/months of lost playing times.
That's a good deal for that guitar in lightly used condition. Am Pro guitars are nice but can be difficult to move in Oz for decent money, often they were discounted a lot new. US Vintage models always command a bit more $$$.
The clean case and extras like the ashtray are icing on the cake.
This I really know. Thats why I was prepared to get this guitar whatever it takes. If I sell the AmPro here, id be hard pressed to get anything especially Guitar Station here in Melbourne has a scratch and dent sale on the AmPros for 1.3k aud bnew, in box and out the door.
