    Better yet, E Series MIJ.

    Gotta be a '84-'87..E8 isn't 1988..)sounded killer, so I had to put it on lay a way. When I take it home, I will look for the date on the neck, or with the pickguard off..
    Odd that it has the heel truss adjust..most pics I see show either a maple w/plug, or the back truss access "hollow plug" on the headstock. Makes it look like a 62 RI, with a 80's decal.. Some natural relicing which is cool with me, it was probably a great guitar to play live, it shows! I will give it a good bath, and a couple lil tweaks, maybe a couple parts, and report back! Stay tuned!

    They're literally falling in my lap..been fun going back to the big F..my first GOOD electric, when I was 17..(1991), was a oly white '74 Thinline Tele..looked JUST like this:

    ...for 150 bucks!! With original case! and 2 Boss pedals (a Heavy metal and Flanger, and a ROCK amp.
    They are listed at 4-6000! And this is the guitar that FIRST hooked me..(my '71 SG REALLY hooked me)..but I played this into the mid '90's and traded for a Les Paul Special..they weren't a popular Tele at all..but the alternative scene dug these..


    I do recall ZERO issues with the saddles...

    I've read that in my guitar book too! Those who did used them to good effect though! I always wondered if i was seeing things when i saw them played... like what's with the one F hole?!

    Thought it was painted on or some custom order thing.

    These are really cool! Does the hollow sound come through like a 335 does?

    Probably not like a 335..but had it's own unique thing going on.
