This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2007-02-17)
Price : US $4,251
This is one of the most original late 60's Teles that you will find. Overall, it is easy to see that the guitar has been played very much. It belonged to a professional musician in the Janesville, WI area. This is supported by the original bill of sale that is included in the case. It shows that a Mr. Anselm Maki purchased the guitar and case on Dec. 13th, 1969 for a whopping total of $320.00. This was after he received a 10% ''professional discount''. The only obvious modification to the guitar was the addition of a jack cover. Otherwise this guitar is completely original. It is believed to even retain it's original frets. It does need the first few replaced due to the wear showing on them. The finish is surely original. You can see the obvious yellowing with the pick guard removed.
There is a large amount of wear in the area where the arm would rest when it was played. The serial number is 239619. The neck stamp is 3MAR69B. This means that it is a Tele neck that was completed in March of 1968. The B means that it is a 1 5/8'' width. The neck is solid maple.
