One of the most versatile guitars ever created, the Telecaster is easily at home in any genre, thanks to its flexible sound, alluring style and smooth playing feel. In 1960, Fender offered rosewood as the standard fingerboard wood and launched the Telecaster Custom, an elegant model with a double-bound body and 3-ply pickguard. The American Original '60s Telecaster combines period-accurate sound and style from this electrifying decade with modern, fast-playing feel and pickup switching.

The Pure Vintage '64 single-coil Telecaster pickups are as period-correct as possible, from the enamel-coated coil wire to the cloth-covered output wires, fiber bobbins and alnico 5 magnets. The bridge pickup's copper shielding plate adds some zing to your tone, while the pole pieces are staggered for balanced volume between the strings. The mid-'60s "C"-shaped neck profile gracefully fills the fret hand, while the 9.5"-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard will feel familiar to any player. Other authentic touches include vintage-tall frets, original-era body radii, vintage-style hardware-including three steel saddles-vintage-style hardshell case and a lacquer finish that not only lets the wood "breathe" naturally with resonant tone, it also wears in a distinctively appealing way.

A legendary instrument, the American Original '60s Telecaster is the best way to experience the performance, style and tone that made Fender the foundation of modern music.

I decide to bite the bullet and spend 2k+ to get ahold of this beauty in lpb. The tone is amazing and play ability is phenomenal. However, I will warn anyone that buys this the nitrocellulose may flake off in transit due to tempature shifts. I recieved mine and noticed that small part had floated off in the shape of a teardrop (very small). This was not an issue to me but to others that need perfection it might pose a problem. I will also say you need to remove the pickguard, and the strap locks as mine still had buffing compound underneath, also the strap locks it comes with are placed straight onto the guitar without buttons and this means that the finish underneath is damaged, I added buttons and got fender locks.
