Used 2016 Fender American Vintage 1964 Telecaster Aged White Blonde with OHSC
Up for sale is this amazing Fender American Vintage 1964 Telecaster! For the guitarist who craves pure vintage Fender style, the American Vintage series presents original-era model year guitars built with meticulous attention to accurate detail that bring Fender history and heritage to authentic and exciting new life.
1964 was a big year for popular music and for the Telecaster, which saw notable design changes that year. It had by then become an indispensable guitar for stage and studio alike, a requisite tool for working guitarists at all levels. Built using original tooling and based on actual 1964 models we tracked down, the U.S.-made American Vintage '64 Telecaster expertly evokes that year's model with authentic sound, style and feel.
UNIQUE FEATURES: Slimmer, more rounded maple neck with "C"-shaped profile and round-laminated rosewood fingerboard with larger pearl dot inlays; All-new pickups wound to period-correct specs and sound, with staggered bridge pickup pole magnets; Threaded steel "barrel" bridge saddles; "Top-hat" switch tip and flat-top knurled chrome control knobs.
This Tele is in great condition - there's a bit of player wear on the bottom of the body, which is common for these American Vintage series guitars from that era, due to the thin lacquer finish. We think it just adds to the vibe! The neck is in great shape. It has been setup to play perfectly by the techs in our shop. It comes with the original hardshell case.
American Vintage series guitars are relatively hard to find, especially in this color. This one here plays great, is lightweight (just 7.3 lbs) and sounds amazing. It's quite the score!
