one of the inlays (7th fret) is abalone while the rest are black. This is a 2006 tele. Is this something special they did for the 60th anniversary? I'm not sure why anyone would do this on their own. Seems like a factory defect?
I have a 2002 that has a problem on that same inlay. The inlay must not have been flush with the top of the neck when they sprayed it. It looks like the varnish is lifted up on one side, making it look like a yin/yang symbol. It's like half of the circle is milky.
I really like my guitar and it doesn't bother me so I'm keeping mine.
Kind of odd but if it plays and sounds great and was part of some 60th anniversary doo-dad would you be stating what a killer 60th Tele you just scored?
Honestly I am picky and have my share of gear OCD, but if it is a good axe it wouldn't bother me in the least.
