For any prospective customer, the issue with buying any used guitar, that is now around 50 years old, is how clean is it – How original is it – What are the negative issues that come with such a guitar – Nothing wrong with a players grade ‘vintage guitar’ providing the price reflects such work and changes – But it is nice to come across a clean, all original guitar, that has no negative issues – And that last sentence effectively sums up this Fender 1970 Tele  – As we moved from the 60’s in to the 70’s, the Strat almost underwent a total rebuild and design, including a 3 bolt neck, plus a new trem assembly inc saddles – Conversely the Tele retained its spec and features as we moved into the new decade – Other than a change to the finish process, a 1967/68 Tele is effectively the same guitar as a 1970 Tele – Yet a 1967/68/69 model still carries that additional desirability factor, but equally that reflects in your credit card requiring a far higher spending limit – By the time we moved through to the mid 70’s and further beyond to the end of the 70’s, then yes the whole build process, coupled with other factors, resulted in a general decline in acceptability and desirability – The bottom line is a 1970 still retains vintage features and desirability – Especially when you come across a good clean example
