In 1971, Fender changed the model to use Humbucking pickups, a "bullet" truss rod (adjusts at peg head), and the peg head decal was changed to read "Fender Telecaster Thinline".
The first Fender solid body model, the Esquire, lasted (in name only) from April 1950 to October 1950 before it was replaced by the "Broadcaster", which lasted (in name only) from the October 1950 to January 1951. Just finding these pickups is a challenge all its own.Even if one is purchased online at a hefty cost, how can you be sure of its vintage value?Starting in the summer of 1951, Fender adopted the name "Telecaster" for this model, and started using new decals after all the old clipped decals were used.Note that whilst the above dates are accurate, be aware that Fender was a month or two ahead in making body parts so that the date of the decal style might be slightly out of step with the guitar it was applied to.
This is due to the fact that little has changed since then.
