You bought it off him? He said he might let it go.
I can smell it from here!
Yeah, that one sounded REAL good, especially after all the restoration work. Enjoy!
I am not a fan of the wood pick guard but the rest of guitar is pretty amazing.
I’m not sure why you feel you have to prove anything to anyone.
Do you like the guitar? If so who gives a flip what internet trolls say about the guitar.?
The issues you describe are not uncommon on Fender stuff from that era.
If you like it, play it, if not sell it.
It sounds very nice to me btw.
Are you talking about that second video still with the lack of pickguard?
Where you can see what it looked like before getting all that grime on it
nice score you did well, enjoy!
I have a 78 strat that weighs in at almost 12 LBs all original ( I had Dan Erlwine redo the original pickguard to factory spec using the original parts)
she still looks pretty for a 42 year old girl!
the original pick guard is put away for safe keeping!
He bought it off the guy in the video as far as I understand. I assume you think the poster is the guy in the video?
Nope! Pickguard removed and you see the wood without the grime
@terminalvertigo it’s so disgusting!! I hope you enjoy it ;D
Congratulations! That tele is so cool it’s disgusting.
That discoloration is not dirt or nicotine. It is a reaction of the paint to moisture that sometimes happens for reasons not known to me. I have a '76 MusicMan guitar body that was stored for 20+ years in a somewhat moist environment and that is just like that. It was originally Natural but is now brown and almost opaque (still natural under the guard). There was never any smoke near it. Nice guitar BTW!
How is your Strat related to the '75 Tele mentioned here?
i like my women like my guitars - loud and dirty.
it the same age and equally as heavey, just as used and abused, as the ops, and shows what fender was thinking by making guitars that they thought had the sustain of the LP at the time ( a project that did not work)
and after this era there was device called a Fat Finger which supposably added mass to the headstock to do the same thing another failed project
