Here is one I picked up yesterday.
05 MIM 72 Tele Thinline 72 RI
05 MIM 72Thinline Tele Front in case 2.jpg

Extremely grungy when I got it. It has Finish issues, so I tore it apart and strippedthe body last night.
First nice day she will get … Im not sure, Clear coat? Olympic White? CAR? Painted one way or another.
I've already picked up the missing bits.

I own 3 Fender Strats But only one Tele currently. Its a Squier in Feb I was in the mood to add a Sunburst Strat to my collection did not care if it was a Squier or Fender. Well the local pawn shop but they had no sunburst Strats but they had a Tele well i like Teles too, so they gave me this little fella .Gorgeous 50s burst nice maple neck white pickguard-plays very nice only Squier tic bottom string gets caught under the fret ocasionally-my buddy named it Boss which is fitting cause Bruce plays an Esquire anyway so heres BOSS the Telecaster.

I did an Esquire mod on my White Lacquer 50s Classic as an experiment (I'd seen a similar one for sale, but wasn't sure it how I'd get on with one). I'm going to put it back to a Tele at some point though and either buy the used MIM Esquire or maybe mod an Affinity Tele I have and put a new neck on it.

The 'ashtray' looks cool, but it does get in the way, so it's usually taken off when playing:
