Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Masterbuilt Rosewood 60's Tele Satin Finish

$ 5,600.00

Fender built several instruments in the late '60s made completely of hand-selected rosewood. These were in production only very briefly and are now highly collectable on the vintage market. Jimi Hendrix reportedly had one of the first Rosewood Stratocaster guitars, and George Harrison of the Beatles used one of the original Rosewood Telecaster guitars on Let It Be and for the famous Apple Records rooftop concert in January 1969. Features include a rosewood body, rosewood neck with mid-'60s oval C"-shaped profile and no skunk stripe or plug, rosewood fingerboard with 7.25" radius and vintage frets, vintage-style hardware, 67 Tele pickups with modern wiring, and satin finish.

Other specifications include:
