This 1967 Fender Telecaster is a wonderful example of a mid '60s Telecaster from the CBS era of Fender production, orientated for left handed players which makes it a particularly rare find. This Telecaster features an Ash body and Maple neck with a typically comfortable mid '60s 'C' shaped profile. The body is finished in the blonde lacquer used by Fender as a standard Telecaster finish at this time. The round laminated veneer rosewood fretboard features the pearloid dot fret markers that became standard with Fender from 1964 onwards, and the guitar features a neck heel stamp of May 67. The original single coil pickups feature all the clarity and top end you would expect from a telecaster bridge, with the traditional mellow sound from the neck position. This guitar is particularly lightweight, making it not only extremely comfortable to play but also seeming to add an airy resonance to the tone.
This guitar is in excellent condition and is internally and externally original. The finish show signs of wear around the lower edge of the instrument, and some minor play wear and patina commensurate with its age. The original pickups are correct and all hardware is original, including the double line Kluson tuners, ashtray bridge cover and white plastic 3 ply pick guard. This guitar also includes its original case.
This guitar has been given a full service and appraisal by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument Workshop, and includes a 3 year warranty.
