This 1969 Fender Telecaster is a wonderful example of a mid '60s Telecaster from the early part of the companies CBS era. 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, and has yellowed over time as most do. 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 April 1969. 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 in very good condition and is internally and externally original, with the exception of a previous re-fret. The fingerboard has also been planed, presumably during this process, resulting in a thinner veneer. 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 'F' stamped tuners 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.
