$ 3489.00

This beautiful vintage orange/red Schecter Telecaster guitar came into our shop last month, and only one rocker comes to mind: Mark Knopfler (of whom we are big fans!)

This vintage Schecter dates to the mid-1980s (G serial number) and features chrome hardware, non-staggered Schecter tuners, two vintage Allen Bradley Omni pots (wired to be pickup tappers for both pickups), a brass nut, a chrome square jack plate, and a Tree of Life guitar strap.

This guitar is in very good condition for its nearly 40 years of existence. As can be seen from the pictures, fret wear is near zero, and the body and chrome shine. There is a blemish on the back edge (see pics) and other slight blemishes, which don’t take away from the overall beauty of the instrument.

It plays superbly, and this is the go-to guitar for anyone who wants to rock it like Mark. This guitar is for you if you’re big into Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits, as we proudly are.
