Fender started offering customers an option to have a Strat or Tele refinished in Custom Color, for 5% up charge. Not many took to this, back then everyone wanted to not stick out and basically stuck to the stock color. In the Telecaster case, 99.9% are Blond. You see in the Fender history books a 2 tone 1957 Fender Tele.. Words saying.. worth Major money! Here is maybe only one ever done in Olympic White. I also have a 1961, 1 owner White Tele. This one was Never sprayed clear in Nitro... this keeping it's Vintage White in color. The clear Nitro) over the top of a Nitro (color) finished is what gets it tho turn Banna Yellow White we like and are use to seeing

Orig Fender Black Strap, Bridge Cover, Polishing Cloth, some 1950's Fender Strings and old Fender picks
Plays LIKE A DAM DREAM! Own part of History.... Only issue is the Tele must of been slammed down, or bouncing around in case as some cracks near neck pickup area. THIS IS Zero Problem. Zero. It was professional epoxy and it stronger than new in this area.
No body date, as yes Fender did this. I say because was a Custom Ordered finish, it mite be under bridge pickup cavity. I will say I believe I was the very first to take this bridge off since 1957. Man these 1950's Esquire and Telecaster's are the Real Deal... Tone & Vibe City.. Life short.. Get a Real Tele!*****
