Fender / Telecaster / 1969 / Blonde / Guitar For Sale
Maple neck, very clean, original blonde Telecaster, what more do you need?
This guitar has quite the look. The original finish is in superb shape and looks to have been well cared for There are small marks and bumps along with minor patches of wear.
The maple neck still has its factory large frets which have plenty of life left in them. There is very little wear to the fretboard. The headstock is in great condition with the logo having escaped any real damage.
The electronics are correct thought are a few solder joint that have been reheated. The pots are dated week 10 of 1966, 1966 pots being present in Fender guitars to the end of the decade. 1M pots were introduced in 1967 along with a treble bleed cap. Solder elsewhere seems consistent with factory soldering. The bridge pickup has been rewound but the neck pickup looks to have survived.
The chrome parts show some corrosion and wear which fits in with the condition of the guitar.
The guitar comes with a slightly later Fender black tolex case.
Sonically, this guitar has a superbly ‘spanky’ quality with plenty of bite from the bridge pickup as you’d expect. The neck pickup is a perfect foil bringing a warmth to proceedings. The maple neck is comfortable to play and the finish has been sufficiently worn to provide a compliant playing surface.
60's Teles are always a welcome sight here at ATB Guitars and this is a stunning example with a great tone to match. Grab it before it gets away!
