Do you know what... It's overpriced for starters, but I'd happily play that. I'd leave it as is, maybe lacquer it, and just let it tell it's story.
Well this is interesting isn’t it?https://reverb.com/item/661384-real-fender-telecaster-1968-blue-floral-body-pickguard-rarest-tele-model-pickguard-ever?utm_source=rev-ios-app&utm_medium=ios-share&utm_campaign=listing&utm_content=661384

gringopig said:"one of the countries most respected vintage fender experts". What a joke.
Well exactly, so what purpose does a so-called expert have except to add validity to a bare faced lie. The 'Fender expert' (and I would dearly love to know who this was) should have declined to comment. Big problem with vintage guitars I think."I decided to leave it as it is the original blue floral finish still on the guitar and the guitar is in original condition"That's a lie. It's not in original 'condition'. An original condition is all the original parts as shipped with the guitar originally.If it was stated that the guitar comes with 'original era parts' then it's fine but the guitar is being deliberately misrepresented.I would like to report this as misrepresentation but I can't find a report button.
and BANG, it's gone. Wow. Good work Reverb!
