Bought this on eBay. Alder body stripped and refinished natural with one replaced saddle, knobs, pickguard, switch tip and tone cap.



So I refinished it using my "Home Depot Daphne Blue" method using the following:

Flat White



Harbor Blue



Nitrocellulose Clear



After spraying white and the color, here's what it looked like:


Next I wet sanded using 2000 grit, then 0000 steel wool and Kiwi brown shoe polish, followed by more steel wool after which I sanded and dinged some corners. Add a Dakaware "Top Hat" switch tip, re-issue flat knobs, Guitar Fetish Mint Green pickguard that received the steel wool/Kiwi treatment and that I notched for the truss rod nut. The Clay Smith Cams sticker was my final touch.

Real. I received a bonus at work and sold my Jaguar to buy it... spendy indeed.

I've played two 71 Teles, one was fantastic, the other was even better.

Congrats on the guitar. I don't know how I feel about "re-relicing" but all in all it looks nice and that's what matters.
