1979 Fender Telecaster Deluxe
A step by step clean-up photo story

As it came in
Closer
Full length shot
Backside, note contours
and 3-bolt neck.
Side view shows plenty of wear above the pickguard and around the edges.
One funky fretboard !
The bridge also needs a clean, and the pickup covers are scratched.

 

Taking the pickguard off
reveals a stowaway !
Yep thats were all the lost picks go.
Cleaner now, all the saddles are off for cleaning.
Cleaner, fretboard.
Finshed

Together with my Marcus Miller bass of the "same" colour. The layout is the same as my MIM Toronado.
