Vintage 70's Japanese Telecaster Copy

Photo for Ad 127973

This is a circa 1970 Japanese built Telecaster copy. It has no name on it, but it looks just like several Aria brand guitars from the time period. It's fun to play(24.5" scale), and sounds good. I've been gigging with it regularly for the past year. I'm only selling because I have another one like it, and a custom build on the way.
There was a crack in the fingerboard from the 15th to 21st fret. It never affected playability, and never moved in the time I've owned it, but the crack has now been filled with epoxy, stained and clear coated. It's still visible, if you look closely, but it is fully repaired. There are some chips in the finish on the back edge, but none that are visible from the front. I don't think that the volume and tone knobs are original. I replaced two of the bridge saddles with compensated ones, but I'll include the originals. Comes with a nice PRS gig bag, which has had the shoulder straps removed, and a fresh set of strings. All in all, this is a nice, knock around tele for those times when you don't want to bring the custom shop guitar out, or if you just want a cool, 45+ year old tele for cheap. Asking $250. plus actual shipping(I'll take the neck off to cut the cost)48 hour approval with buyer paying return shipping.
