This is a vintage 1974 Fender Telecaster electric guitar. This particular example, serial number 585277, is in impeccably mint, near new, 100% all original condition! In fact, this guitar is so pristine, it still retains the original protective plastic placed over the original pickguard for original presentation purposes! Having only seen one other example (which sold for $5,800+ on eBay years ago) with the plastic still intact and on the original pickguard, I would venture to say that there can only be a small handful of these time-capsule-condition perfectly preserved Teles from this era still in existence. This example is in like new, 100% all original condition, and includes all of the original paperwork (all ephemera and tags), the original ash tray bridge cover, the original guitar strap, the original polish cloth in the bag, the original instrument cable, several vintage era-correct picks, and it even has the original Fender Bullet strings still installed. Perfect for collectors, this is as good as it gets, so don’t miss out because this may be the only opportunity to buy such an incredibly well-preserved ’74 Tele.

Given the over abundance of illustrative documentation to the right, it’s difficult to find a proper way to describe this guitar other than claiming it to be near perfect and all original. The body’s original Blonde polyurethane finish is perfectly preserved with no evidence of aging, no playing wear, and no natural patina. The chrome hardware is exceptional and void of superficial scratches. Everything about this instrument is exceedingly clean. The frets display very minimal wear, though there is no fading to the fingerboard, and no fretboard finish wear.
The guitar works perfectly and sounds great. It is actually very light weight considering that most produced during this era are rather heavy. All of the original plastic wiring is intact and untouched.
Once again, this spectacular Tele is in museum-quality like new condition, so do not miss out on this chance to own the World’s best ’74 Tele!
