    The 58s have mass. I have both AV guitars, and have also bought several sets of each knobs, separately. Night and day. Different knurl, different top, different edge treatment, and different material. The 64s have to be aluminum, and the 58s almost certainly plated brass. I don't know for sure, but I'd bet that they copied some original guitars for each. They seemed to have a good time getting the details right on those AVs.

    Fender makes the adjust hole in the walnut plug so small that you need a good picture to even see it.

    Thank you. Beautiful neck.

    Here's a white blonde Esquire partscaster I put together. The body is a Fender MIJ reissue.

    After drooling over these guitars, as an unbiased observer, I think white blondes have to have a white pickguard.

    I shall go away and hide now!

    It's great to see professional players choosing white/blonde teles.

    No apologies about the black guard. That’s what comes with this Stewmac kit C05FF49A-98C7-490F-9BCE-6FDB227F159E.jpeg

    I'm not big on parting out Fender guitars in good order, but if you want a One Piece factory finished body, MIJ Fender ash bodies is the place to look.

    Very nice.
