This Tele Custom is from the period when Fender had suspended all manufacturing in the USA, so it's not a less-expensive 1985 version of the Telecaster Custom, it's the only 1985 version. Has been upgraded with Lollar "Vintage Tele" pickups and Wilkinson brass bridge saddles, but the original pickups and saddles are in the case. And speaking of cases, this one is charming in its own right, there's no other case quite like it.
