AMERICAN ORIGINAL '60S TELECASTER®

One of the most versatile guitars ever created, the Telecaster is easily at home in any genre, thanks to its flexible sound, alluring style and smooth playing feel. In 1960, we offered rosewood as the standard fingerboard wood and launched the Telecaster Custom, an elegant model with a double-bound body and 3-ply pickguard. The American Original ‘60s Telecaster combines period-accurate sound and style from this electrifying decade with modern, fast-playing feel and pickup switching.

 

FEATURES

  • Alder body with lacquer finish
  • Two Pure Vintage '64 single-coil Telecaster pickups
  • Mid-60s "C"-shaped neck profile; 9.5"-radius fingerboard
  • Vintage-style hardware; Telecaster bridge with three steel saddles
  • Includes vintage-style hardshell case

 

LACQUER FINISH

The nitrocellulose lacquer finish not only lets the body breathe with its true tonal character, it also ages and wears in a distinctively personal way.

 

PURE VINTAGE ‘64 PICKUPS

American Original instruments feature specially voiced pickups crafted to reproduce the authentic sound and performance of individual model years.

 

“MID-’60S C” NECK SHAPE

This Telecaster features a “C”-shaped neck profile delivered straight from the mid-1960s to your hands. Remarkably comfortable, it suits any playing style.

 

VINTAGE-ACCURATE BODY AND NECK RADII

Original-era fans can rest assured every curve and line of the body and neck are accurate to the historic originals.

 

VINTAGE-CORRECT HARDWARE

From the bridge to the string tree and tuning machines, every piece of hardware is just like the original.

 

FINGERBOARD & FRETS

This 9.5”-radius fingerboard is slightly flatter than a vintage-style 7.25” radius, providing a comfortable fret-hand feel. Vintage-tall frets make it easier to bend notes without fretting out.

CITES

CITES regulations concerning the export of items containing certain woods affect any guitar sold ouside of the European Union and which contains any quantity of either Rosewood or Bubinga.  In these cases, an additional charge of £80.00 will be levied per species after the sale to pay for the required re-export certificate.  There will be a delay in dispatching any guitar containing either Bubinga or Rosewood of up to 4 weeks while we obtain the necessary certification for export. As the charge is per species, where a guitar contains both Bubinga AND Rosewood, the charge is doubled to £160.00.  We will contact you following your purchase of any guitar containing a controlled wood and advise of the charge once you have placed the order.  You can make payment for the charge by sending a Paypal payment to us at: sales@fxpedal.co.uk. 

Note that CITES only applies to guitars containing Rosewood or Bubinga that are being exported outside the European Union.  Guitars being delivered with the United Kingdom or in the European Union will be dispatched as normal.
