Used Fender & Squier Guitars

1973 Fender Telecaster Custom at Pittsburgh Guitars

1973 Telecaster Custom
Weighing in at a comfortable 7 lbs, 8.5 oz, this is a well-loved guitar. We call it "restored," because it has had some changes made through the years, including the pickguard, neckplate, and tuning gears. The serial number on the changed neckplate is not accurate - the pots date it to 1973. There is some extra routing under the neck pickup, and the mocha finish has numerous dings and finish chips and checks. And it has some belt buckle scratching on the back. So it's in very good condition, with a great vibe! Price includes equally-loved original hard Fender case. The latches and hinges are all sound and working. There is a large tear on the back. (picture - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 - 11)
