The wax-potted Pure Vintage ‘59 single-coil Stratocaster pickups are as period-correct as possible, from the Formvar-coated coil wire to the cloth-covered output wires, fiber bobbins and alnico 5 magnets. Doesn't look like play wear as much as bumping the bass into other stuff wear. Description . Headstock has minor marks on the end and bottom edge as well as some nicks in the decal, no major marks. The original pickups are included. Notice the subliminal message that if you buy a new American Original you will get more of a 70's Fender (we all know the negative connotations around 70's Fenders) but if you buy one of Wildwood's Thin Skins you get more of a 50's and 60's Fender (the most desirable decades). When you count up the various finish and neck permutations plus lefties (of which there are two Strats and a Tele to choose from) and basses, there are 30 different flavours of American Original spanning three decades. Up for sale is a fairly clean 2005 Fender American Vintage ’52 Reissue Telecaster in its original butterscotch blonde finish over a nicely grained ash body.

Dec 20, 2019 #14 This one has some play wear, dents / dings and some scatted finish checking which gives it a nice worn in look and feel. The American Original ’60s Telecaster similarly replicates an early Sixties Fender Telecaster Custom with its double-bound alder body, 3-ply “eggshell” pickguard and more colorful gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish options, which include 3-Color Sunburst, Lake Placid Blue and Fiesta Red. The ’52 Reissue Telecaster is one of the longest-running Reissue production guitars and hands down one of my favorites. Overall very good plus condition less some very faint play wear, a few minor dings and light surface scratches. Reactions: TubeStack, Marco78, bastian and 4 others.
