Fender American Original 60s Telecaster 3 Tone Sunburst
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, we 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.
In the build department, the '60s Tele deviates very little from the classic formula. It's made of a nitro lacquered alder body with a maple neck and rosewood fingerboard packing just 21 tall frets.
At a 25.5-inch scale length and 9.5-inch radius fretboard, the Tele playability is that which you know and love. The three-saddle bridge and bone nut ensure minimal string slippage and roadworthy stability.
A double dose of Pure Vintage '64 Gray-Bottom single coils deliver a lively, chimey vibe. Contrary to popular belief, these pickups can certainly achieve great drive and higher gain sounds. True iconic tones that have shaped countless records.
