My 1952 Telecaster is an heirloom instrument. It along with a few various other guitars and amps were passed down though my family and eventually wound up under my fingers. Like my '54 strat this one also underwent the same refin process. Save that this one was sanded down and stained to a walnut color. The paint job on it is the only thing that isn't original on this guitar. This one is also worth a lot of money, but also is worth more sentimentally and also will not ever be sold, at least not in my life time.
