This guitar is in very good condition and has undergone a full in-store professional inspection and setup. The neck is nice and straight, fits comfortably in the hand and exhibits only gentle fretwear. Cosmetically, you'll notice the relic, which was done as an aftermarket upgrade by Chicago Fretworks - beyond the relic, the guitar has no imperfections that would have any impact to structural integrity as can be seen in photos. The original Shawbucker pickups (included) were updated to Fishman Greg Koch Gristle Tone P90s, and the tuners were upgraded to Gotoh vintage style tuners. Tweed hard shell case is also included. 

Serial Number: US18058805

A note from Five Star Guitars: the serial number on this particular instrument upon a search will elicit an American Special telecaster - this is in error. Our in-house luthier has verified with the neck heel, inner routing and original pickups that it is in fact a 2018 Am Pro Tele Deluxe, and all specifications and update information have been deemed accurate by our online sales manager.
