FENDER 2010 ROAD WORN 50s TELECASTER RARE TV Yellow Best Tele Relic Around 74285
Great example of the Road Worn series.
This is a 2010 Fender Road Worn Telecaster in rare TV Yellow (aka Blonde) finish in excellent condition. This was made the third year of the Road Worn series. Take a look at this road worn and then compare to some others on eBay. "THESE ROAD WORN SERIES ARE NOT ALL CREATED EQUAL." The Fender shop started to water down their relic work recently. You can buy one of the new 2019 ones for $924, but look at the pics. Most show almost no wear. OR worse yet, they're just posting stock photos and you won't know what the relic looks like till it gets to your front door--some of these come with almost no relicing.
Personally I love the way Fender was doing it 10 years ago. Look at all the bumps, dings, edge wear, etc this baby has. All hardware has a dull shine and patina of wear. Fretboard has aged look. Back of neck worn satin smooth. One note: you can feel the skunk stripe down near the nut, as they tend to push out once the finish is removed, so if you're picky about the backside of the neck, you might want to pass. The rare white pickguard makes this a standout. This also has some AMAZING checking all over, which is rare to find on these. Basically looks very close to Custom Shop quality. If you like your guitars to feel and play like a well-worn old pair of blue jeans this might be for you. Weight is 6 pounds, 12 ounces. No case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks!

My setup on guitars includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. I spray out any pots that are noisy. I turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. I don't claim to be a trained luthier, but I'm able to set guitars/basses for a reasonable out-of-box experience and have had very few complaints. If you're looking for the perfect setup on a used guitar, please expect to take it to a trained luthier who is familiar with your individual playing style and preferences. ps: basses get the same setup minus the new strings. Thanks!
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
