Here’s a vintage 1973 Fender Telecaster electric guitar. This particular example, serial number 385384, is in nice condition and includes the original hard shell case. Aside from an unfortunate route where the previous owner had installed a humbucking pickup in the neck position, a non-original neck pickup recently installed, as well as a new pickguard, this guitar is a functional player’s piece, and really sounds and plays amazing!
Serial Number: 385384
