It is a vintage guitar rich with character, with a unique history that no recent masterbuilt guitar can truly capture. Its battle scars are honestly earned after being played by people who loved playing it.

CRAIG'S POV

People who lust after vintage Telecasters will understand precisely what this '57 Tele is all about. It is a vintage guitar rich with character, with a unique history that no recent masterbuilt guitar can truly capture.

It's a Tele which gives you, the player, permission to dig in and play freely, without worrying about getting an unwanted nick or scratch.

Now for the deep dive. The neck carve is spot-on perfect. A beautifully carved soft V maple neck (dated 4-57) measuring .88" at the first fret to .98" at the 12th. Just the way I like it. The body is ash and dated 8-57. The guitar is all original with the original case (one broken latch). The front pickup, though original, has been rewound by Lindy Fralin to vintage factory specifications. The sound is what you'd expect from a great '50s Telecaster, the secret sauce that has inspired so many players over the last 65 plus years.

If you are in the market for a vintage Tele that would be a joy to own and play, this example should undoubtedly be on your radar.

If you'd like to find out more about this item, just call or e-mail me. It would be my pleasure to talk to you about it.
