Fender's American Original '60s Telecaster is a remarkably authentic recreation of one of their most revered models. The guitar’s vintage-correct specifications and hardware give it the look and feel of an actual 1960s Telecaster. This one gets an alder body with a lacquer finish, and a mid-60s "C" shaped neck profile with a 9.5" radius rosewood fingerboard for exceptional fretting-hand feel. Plus, it sounds remarkable thanks to two Pure Vintage '64 Telecaster single-coil pickups, so you get all the iconic twang that initially put the Tele on the map. Plus, like all American Originals, this Telecaster has vintage-accurate body and neck radii, so you know you're getting the real deal. Thanks to vintage authenticity, the American Original '60s Telecaster is a remarkable recreation of an iconic Fender staple.
