What makes this guitar special: A highly modified ’74 Tele with a super cool vibe and stellar playability. This one has been around the block, but has a look that absolutely exudes “cool” and a sound that is every bit as sweet as any other vintage Tele. The neck dates to ’74, with original frets and F-stamped tuners, and the pots date to ’74 as well. The serial on the neck plate is late ’66/early ’67. The body is unoriginal, but has been masterfully relic’d to maintain a vintage aesthetic, and the contemporary pickups sound positively terrific. Weighing in at 6 lb, 11 oz, it’s perfect for extended nights of playing. Professionally setup and inspected by the experts at Cream City Music, this blonde bombshell will arrive ready to play as soon as it hits your doorstep. 

Cosmetic condition: Super cool vintage vibe, with relic’d nicks, chips, dings, dents, scuffs, scratches, and heavy weather checking throughout the body. Fingerboard edges show some typical staining, and there is some scuffing and denting on the headstock as well. Much of the hardware has been aged and shows some light oxidation.

Body: Solid ash body in transparent blonde finish with vintage-style string through bridge and aged threaded barrel saddles.

Weight: 6 lb, 11 oz

Neck: C-shaped maple neck with black side dots and black dot inlays. 1 5/8” nut width, 25 1/2" scale length.  Original frets have a good amount of life left in them. Original F-stamped tuners function great. Neck is straight and truss rod is functional.

Electronics: Cloth-wired reproduction single-coil pickups (Neck-7.62k ohms, Bridge-6.76k ohms) with 3-way pickup selector switch and knurled chrome knobs, 1x volume, 1x tone. Pots date to ’74, and all electronics are in fully functioning condition.

Case: Tweed Fender hard shell case included. 

Why We Love Fender

It's hard to find a name more synonymous with guitars than Fender. Ever since Leo Fender burst onto the scene with his now-iconic Telecaster, Fender guitars have found homes in the hands of brand new guitar players and seasoned rock stars. When the headstock says Fender, you know you're getting a quality instrument.
