Fender Chrissie Hynde Telecaster Electric Guitar (with Case)

The Chrissie Hynde signature Telecaster feels broken in straight out of the box thanks to its Road Worn finish and a 7.25" radius rosewood fretboard.

What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Road Worn finish Look and feel of a "broken in," well-played guitar
Mid-'60s C-shaped neck Comfortable, fast-feeling neck shape
Rosewood fretboard Open, warm tone and smooth playing feel
Alder body Light weight with a wide tonal range

Telecaster in hand, Chrissie Hynde formed The Pretenders in 1979 and quickly established the band as a rock and roll powerhouse. Chrissie's churning Tele rhythms have been the heartbeat of the band's rugged sound from the very beginning.

The Chrissie Hynde Telecaster features an alder body finished in Faded Ice Blue Metallic Road Worn lacquer, a custom mid-'60s "C"-shaped maple neck with a 7.25" radius fingerboard-exactly matching Chrissie's original, vintage-output Chrissie Hynde Tele pickups and a chrome mirror pickguard-all matching the unmistakable look and feel of Hynde's treasured '65 model.

I was browsing the site, looking at several different telecasters... the looks of this guitar really caught my eye.A lot of people might be deterred by the idea of paying this much for a Mexican tele, but i thought the value was there.The neck and body are both finished in nitrocellulose, the body had has some cool finish checking but none of the nicks, dings or dents found on other road worn guitars.It looks like one that was played and loved, but still well cared for.I really dig the look of the worn chrome pickguard, and worn hardware.You get a rosewood fretboard, a lot of the recent Fender guitars are using Pau Ferro.You also get locking tuners and a deluxe Fender Hard shell case, a value right there.I'm not a huge Pretenders fan, i know the hits, that's about it. I didn't buy it because of Chrissie or The Pretenders...I bought it because it's an awesome Telecaster at a fair price in my opinion. It looks and sounds great!

I was browsing the site, looking at several different telecasters... this one really caught my eye.Some people might be deterred by the idea of paying this much for a Mexican tele, but i thought the value was there.The neck and body are both finished in nitrocellulose, the body and had has some cool finish checking, what I'd call light relicing.Mine looks like a well loved instrument.I really dig the look of the worn chrome pickguard, and worn hardware.You get a rosewood fretboard, a lot of the more recent Fender offerings guitars are using Pau Ferro.You also get locking tuners and a deluxe Fender Hard read more shell case, a great value right there.Most other Fender road worn guitars are shipping with just a gig bag.I'm not a huge Pretenders fan, i know the hits, that's about it. I didn't buy it because of Chrissie or The Pretenders...I bought it because it's a killer Telecaster at a fair price in my opinion. It looks and sounds great!

Features
The 6 adjustable saddles are really nice for better intonation, although I've got no issues with the 3 barrel saddles found on most Telecaster.

Ease of Use
The instrument sounds like you'd expect a telecaster to sound.

Quality
I found no issues with the fit and finish, a fine looking guitar.

Value
I's say for all that you get, the guitar is priced fair.

Manufacturer Support
I've never had to contact fender regarding this or any previous purchase.

The Wow Factor
This would be a great instrument for the Chrissie Hynde or Pretenders fan, but even if you aren't.... it's a solid, fine instrument. A great Telecaster in my opinion.

Musical Background:
I play guitar in a band.

Musical Style:
Rock, Classic Rock, Punk Rock.
