1952 Fender Telecaster - Blonde

Serial number 3194

The 1952 Telecaster is pictured here has TG-6-6-52 penciled on the end of the neck, indicating employee Tadeo Gomez completed it in June of 1952.  The date penciled in the neck pocket area of the body is 6-3-52.  The guitar has the classic characteristics of a 1952 Tele including: a transparent “butterscotch” blonde finish over an ash body, a single ply black phenolite (also known as Bakelite) pickguard, bridge pickup with level pole pieces (staggered during 1955), and a three-position switch. The one-piece maple neck has narrow spaced position markers at the 12th fret (the dot spacing became wider between 1953 and 1963), a round string tree (rectangular in 1956), and Kluson “no brand” tuners (the tuners were stamped with “Kluson Deluxe” in a single line by 1957).
