Its possible the hardware could have been changed by a previous owner. Nice find.

The previous owner probably changed the hardware. That makes the most sense to me. Either way, it's an attractive guitar, I have to say.

I can't think of anything other than the general consensus of hardware change.

HNGD!

I can say that my old MIM TELE is actually one of the best playing and sounding guitars i have ever owned. Once in a while you find a jem i guess.

I'm not saying I was surprised because I own a couple MIM Fenders and I would never dream of letting them go. This one just looks exceptional.
