I don't think there will be much drooling over this, maybe crying, lol. Here's a pic of what is primarily a left handed 1969 Fender Telecaster. Unfortunately the original neck (stolen) and pickups were replaced. I bought this in the 1980s from a guy that played the bar scene. It's got the scars to prove it, with more chips than a bag of Lays and a cigarette burn on the headstock. The replacement neck is a nice birds eye maple with rosewood fingerboard that was slimmed down. The neck pickup is a mini-humbucking and the bridge has a Seymour Duncan Hot Rail. It plays great, although I'm seriously considering swapping the pups for some Tele Reissues or Noiseless to try for more of a vintage Tele look and sound.

Thanks

That is a very cool looking Tele! I bet it sounds great as is.
