Today, Lawman Guitars is Proudly Presenting...
A beautiful 1973 Vintage Fender Telecaster Guitar with a Super Hot Original Fender Pickups, original Fender Hardshell Case, and even some cool original Case Candy!!
I got this from a shop here in Des Moines that had sold it originally...It shows lots of character. Really great yellowing of the original see thru Blond finish, the black guard is still great and only has some minor dings and wear on the arm area from lots of gigs..see pics 10 and 11 ..It was played a lot but not abused and extremely well cared for....
The medium original frets have some pitting and flattening but still have plenty of life in them. See pics ......the Tuners are original, the Pickguard, tailpiece, Bridge Pickup knobs are also original .. I also have the original bridge cover for this beauty...those are always missing.... All original and no breaks or funny business here. This is a great guitar!
This guitar is no light weight...Solid ash body that weighs in at 9 lbs 10 ozs... Incredible sustain with this beauty!
Heres some info I found on these cool Vintage Tele Guitars!
In early 1951, Fender renamed its only production solid-body guitar the Telecaster, replacing the short-lived Broadcaster moniker used in late 1950. The Telecaster quickly became the guitar of its age, propelling the status of the solid-body electric guitar from novelty to the defining instrument of popular music. Like most long-lasting guitar models, the Tele has seen its share of variations and specialty models come off the line since the early '50s. The standard no-frills Telecaster, however, has stayed largely the same, strutting two single-coil pickups, a slab body of Ash (or later Alder), and an unmistakable twang that helped shape the sound of country and rock music. Like the rest of the Fender catalog, the CBS purchase of 1965 brought a series of changes to the Telecaster. Teles from 1965 onward are less desirable to collectors than earlier examples.

The original Fender Hardshell Case is very nice as well...All latches and hinges work and the interior and exterior are in great shape..see pics 11 and 12...Be sure to check out the case candy…great items that are original to this guitar…
Out Techs set this beauty up with great low playing action with a new set of 9 gauge strings..You have plenty of room to raise or lower it to your liking..Couple that with the Original Fender Hardshell case and you have quite the guitar here ....
This guitar sounds stupid good...the Fender Pickups are Hot, hot, hot...I really like these......the neck feels awesome and it has easy playing great action ...
Now this guitar is uber cool but old and vintage so it will be sold as-is no returns... however, I have been hand picking my customers guitar for over 18 years now and they all loved the guitars I found them…this cool Tele will certainly not be an exception...
Thanks for checking out our cool guitars.
