This is a 1995 or 1996 Telecaster Special that was Made in Mexico (MIM)This model was the precursor to the Tex Mex Model.
The serial is: MN533017- Body Color is black with black pick guard- The body has a few scrapes, nicks and dings - The most noticeable is pictured, but I do have the chip section that can be glued back into place.- This is a player's guitar and has seen some action- This has a five way switch and a humbucker / single coil configuration- Pots are little scratchy but settle in after a turn or two - I'll spray some contact cleaner in the pots before shipping.- This was setup last year, but one string buzzes a little. A minor setup is probably in order, or simple allen wrench turn. - Includes vintage style hard case - some wear, but all latches and hinges work fine.- Give me a few days to track down a shipping box after the auction closes.
