1983 Vintage USA Fender Telecaster w/Bigsby Trem

For your consideration, a very clean and rare Tele from the early 80’s. Serial Number is E 3197XX. This model (the “TopLoader”) was made from mid-late 82’ through 84’. Cosmetically, this guitar is in great shape with minimal scratches and a handful of checking lines on the face which can only be seen close up and which also give it that natural aged look.  Both pups are very strong, the pots are clean with no scratchiness and there’s very little buckle rash which I tried to show but is hard to see.  All original, except two modifications have been made:  First, at some point the prior owner had other tuners (Grovers, I suspect), but the originals are on now. There are six very small holes which have been filled nicely and are not very visible. Sorry the pics of the headstock are not very focused, but my camera is not the best.  Rest assured that the headstock surfaces are in fine shape.  Second, I replaced the original bridge (will be included) with a Bigsby Trem that was professionally installed by a Fender authorized shop. It stays in tune as well!

 I have owned this guitar for five years, have rarely played it and have treated it with the respect an awesome 25-year old axe like this deserves.  I wish I didn’t have to give it up, but other expenses are calling and I must trim the herd.

P.S. Discoloration on Volume Knob is from the camera.
