Vintage 1971 Fender Telecaster Tele Olympic White

Great playing and classic sounding Vintage Fender Tele!
Hard to say anything new about this iconic design... Fender got it right very early on and this example from 1971 is clean and all original. Light honest player wear.
Nothing has been messed with. Untouched solder joints. Original pickups. Pots are 1376634 so Fender was still using up the CTS Pots stash that they bought in 1966. Serial # 298xxx.
Neck is stamped in black ink 3 MAR71B
Headstock has a single string tree.

T’s a half dozen or so long finish cracks on the back and a couple on the front. See photos. Two corners of the pickguard by their respective screws are missing a bit.

Originals are included.
