Fender / Telecaster / 1966 / Blonde / Guitar For Sale
Fender Telecaster 1966
Made in USA
Serial Number 164916
A very nice vintage Tele with the original blonde finish, shows some wear but no repairs. The neck lacquer is quite worn but feels great in the hand. Fretboard has some wear but has the original wider frets, an option in the mid 60’s. Frets feel absolutely fine to play, no overtones. The pickups are original and haven’t been rewound, electrics are also original although it has been modded to the modern Tele configuration. Original machine heads all working well too. The ‘Telecaster’ headstock logo has worn and now just shows Fender, in certain lights it is possible to see the outline of the original decal. There has been some work on the guitar, at some point it was planned to be routed for humbuckers but the work wasn’t completed. The minor routing that was done was filled and then that area only re-finished, some backlit photos show how minor this was. With the original Ashtray bridge cover it is not noticeable. The guitar comes with the original hard case which has been stamped Joe Cocker although there is not provenance to suggest the guitar was his or one of his band members.
The guitar has just been serviced/setup with 10’s and is a great player.
Please feel free to email or call should you wish to try the guitar or if there’s anything at all.
