Fender TL-69 Telecaster Made In Japan MIJ 1986 Blonde Refin A Serial 1969' Reissue
This guitar is honestly wild. I initially thought this was an original blonde nitro finish, but after digging in, I've come to the conclusion this was originally a pink paisley telecaster that was refinished with a blonde nitro YEARS ago. This has organically aged as shown and feels spot on for a vintage Tele. This is right in line with any proper late 60s or early 70s telecaster's I've played.
There's a small pink streak in the neck pocket, and you can actually see a light imprint of what looks to be the paisley design on the back in the right light. This model (TL69-75) was also not offered in blonde. If it wasn't for these reasons I would have assumed it was a original Fender finish.
Guitar is mostly original, but does show a lot of wear. Fortunately the frets are in nice shape with plenty of life left. At least one of the strap buttons have been swapped. The pickguard is a replacement. Otherwise this looks to be all original. The saddle screw for the B/E strings it pretty stripped and hard to turn. I would recommend replacing it. The pickup selector cap is a replacement from a very long time ago. There's an oval in the finish that has not aged as much, assuming there was a sticker there at some point.
One again, this guitar shows a ton of cosmetic wear, especially in the finish. Most of the metal components show oxidation, and other wear.
