Summary: There are two distinct series of TL-69 Telecasters, the first being the colors of the various Paisley and Flower designs the second being the all Rosewood models. This TL-69 is one of the Pink Paisley telecasters. It has a Maple neck, vintage style tuning keys, and two TL-Vintage telecaster single coil pickups. The clear pickguard allows you to see the beautiful Paisley finish as well.

Body: Basswood with a gloss Pink Paisley finish.

Neck: Maple with a Maple fingerboard, 25.5” scale length, 1.650’ nut width, 21 frets, black dot inlays.

Pickups/Hardware: Two TL-Vintage telecaster single coil pickups, vintage style tuning keys, clear pickguard, master volume/master tone control/3-way pickup selector, 3-saddle bridge (string-through).

Cosmetics: This guitar is good vintage shape. The body has some dings and chips in the finish. It has some light finish checking. The control plate has light surface scratches. The back of the neck has very light indentations and the frets are in great shape. There is an area near the output jack that has worn down to the wood (See Photos Please). Overall, this guitar has a few cosmetic issues, but it still plays and sounds fantastic.

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has inspected, setup, and restrung this instrument with a new set of strings. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functional, and the action has been setup low and comfortable. The frets are in great shape with no major grooves or divots from use and it plays beautifully up and down the fretboard with no dead spots or choking out.

Weight: 7.53 lbs.

Case: This guitar ships in a hard-shell case, professionally packaged, and fully insured. The original owner was a heavy smoker & the case does have a smokey smell that hasn't went away.
