Every Friday I take a ride around some pawn shops. A few weeks ago I had posted about a really cool Japanese made Ibanez I found for $31.00. My best find of 2017 has been a 1955 Les Paul Special that was refinished with the California Girl case for $350! Today I picked up two Telecasters. The first one looked to be a nice quality parts build. The fretwork is really nice (someone must have spent some time on it) and it looked to have Mighty Mite pickups and Ping tuners. It was priced at $49.99, but I got it for $39.99 out the door. When I got it home I disassembled it. The neck is very nice. Chunky with a slight V profile. It has a maple cap on it and I was wondering if anyone here knows if that's indicative of Mighty Mite, All Parts or any particular maker. There is a 4 penciled on it, but no real other markings. The body is probably alder judging by the grain and weight. It's a three piece body with a nice finish on it. No markings aside from a T in the bridge cavity. It looks like there could have been a marking in the pocket at one time. The routing is vintage style (no swimming pool). Aside from the tuners the hardware isn't that great. Some cheap 3 saddle bridge and mini pots. The switch, however, seems to be very nice and smooth. One of the bushings for the tuners is missing, but I have another full set that will fit these. They're a different size so I'll change them all to keep it looking right. I pulled the neck pickup and, as expected, it's a Mighty Mite Strat pickup. If anyone knows how these are please let me know. I expected the bridge to be the same, but the copper baseplate says Seymour Duncan made in USA. I googled the numbers on the label and it's a Vintage Broadcaster USA made Duncan! The guitar only had four strings on it, as seen in the photos, but it seems to be really nice. Does anyone know if Ping tuners are decent? I have a set of reissue Klusons sitting around that I could use on this. It also came with a cool 1980s Fender logo strap and a set of Jim Dunlop Strap locks. Here are some photos: The second Telecaster is a Squire Classic Vibe Telecaster in Sunburst. That one was $150, but it also came with a nice hardshell case. Since I only had $100 cash on me I put $15 on that one and will pick it up in a couple weeks. I'll post pictures then.
