Fender / TELECASTER / 1966 / Blond / Guitar For Sale
Very nice mid-60s transitional Telecaster: Excellent condition, all original, with an exceptionally fine Brazilian Rosewood fretboard. Transition Logo shows some wear but is clean enough. Original Kluson Deluxe ‘double-line’ tuners, pearl dots. Neck date is July 1966, pots date is 42nd week of 1965. All original pickups and electronics, bridge pickup has its pencilled date hidden by the usual masking tape but is untouched and clearly original. Typical mid-late '60s wiring, with volume and tone controls always working, both in individual and double pickup selections. All original hardware: bridge with threaded saddles, Kluson tuners, knobs, nut, daka-ware switch tip, pickguard, etc. The fingerboard is made of exceptionally beautiful Brazilian rosewood and is in excellent shape. Normal playing wear, mostly on body edges and back of neck, no belt-buckle wear, some light checking, heavier on the headstock . A few dings on the lower body edge. Small plugged-hole from a second string retainer, now removed and touched-up. It's the only real flaw of this exceptional guitar. Great sounding, great-playing problem-free Telecaster, in really very fine conditions. Loud and aggressive sound. The guitar comes with its very clean original hardshell case, covered with black-tolex and with the '66-style ‘no-underline’ Fender logo. Go to www.realvintage.it for 52 detailed pictures!
