As the story goes, the current owner of this guitar worked for Fender before his card was called to serve in Vietnam. Upon returning to his job at the Fender factory, he was met with this guitar hangin on the wall. After time had passed he inquired about the guitar and was met with the pleasant surprise of taking the guitar home with him. As luck would have it the guitar has remained barely played and kept in a gig bag for the majority of its life. The guitar skipped the production line and hitting the market because it was a parts guitar formulated by employees, hence why it was available to the current owner. Technically a "Nocaster" because it is missing the "Telecaster" font on the headstock, this guitar remains completely uncirculated until now. It is an anomaly and an incredibly special guitar we are proud to share.

The guitar checks out to be entirely period correct and accurate. Because this guitar is pieced together with parts from the Fender shop, it yields some inconsistencies most production models wouldn’t have seen. There is a doweled hole in the pegged from an improperly drilled tuner or screw hole. There is some finish/glue bleed into the fretboard from the nut and a “Nocaster” logo on the headstock. This is inconsistent with the era because a production guitar would have the word “Telecaster” present. The guitar was setup by our team for the first time in a while and is ready to be played and cherished.

It goes without saying that guitars like this never come around and this is both a one-off instrument and a very clean, collectors grade example.

Given that the guitar was brought home from the factory uncased, there is no original case that belongs to it. However it does come with a padded gig bag.
