A friend has lent me a Tele for a couple of weeks to play around with. I don't know much about all the different variants and models of Tele's.

Here is what I know:

Serial number US111xxxxx
Has a 1951 - 2011 60th anniversary Tele back plate
Double bound body with black binding
Rosewood fretboard with blocks
It looks white in the pic but it's really cream colored.

What model is it?

Thanks,
slipbeer

I look at that and think it must be a short scale tele. I'm sure it's not but the block inlays make me think Gibson.

Thanks for the ID. My friend bought it to help out a friend of his who needed some money and didn't know what model it was.

The block inlays threw me off a little bit but I just had it cranked up through my Princeton Reverb and was getting my Albert Collins on.

Sounds great, plays great and definitely a change of pace from my trusty McCarty. Nice guitar for sure.
