1971 Firemist Gold Telecaster

Extremely rare 1971 Firemist Gold Telecaster. Last year Firemist Gold was offered as a custom colour before the whole tele line got a revamp in 72 with some models getting dropped, others tweaked and some new models introduced. This thing has aged beautifully with the gold turning an even darker shade as the clear lacquer has yellowed. Check out the headstock! The fingerboard is almost ebony black. Were it not for the thick logo you could easily confuse it for a 60/61. A lot of old guitars have had bits and bobs of work done to them over the years, rarely do you get one that you know is just right!
