Giving modern players a chance at playing dream instruments from some of the most important decades in music history, the Classic Series offers recreations of these guitars, whilst ensuring they remain attainable. With vintage appointments, styling, and sound, the Fender Classic Series '60s Telecaster gets you pretty close to the real deal.
The legendary, single-cutaway design is apparent here, carved from alder and, rarely seen with Teles, polyester-finished in Olympic White, for a unique-looking model. With this finish applied, the guitar’s other appointments are accented nicely, with the three-ply Mint Green pickguard, aged knurled flat-top control knobs and top hat style switch tip, and 3-saddle, vintage-style, strings-through-body bridge with chrome barrel saddles all looking resplendent.
C SHAPE MAPLE NECK WITH VINTAGE APPOINTMENTS
Joined to the Fender Classic Series 60s Telecaster, and kept in place by a 4-bolt vintage style neck plate, is a maple neck sporting the classic “C” Shape profile and finished with gloss urethane for smoother movement and hand placement.
Working hand-in-hand with the neck to provide an awesome playing experience is a rosewood fingerboard, which in this case has a slimmer, 7.25" (184.1 mm) radius measurement, rather than the more common 9.5" (241 mm), and 1.650" (42 mm) nut width. This is equipped with a set of 21 vintage-style-sized frets, with white dot inlays providing navigation.
It is at the neck that you’ll find a few more of the guitar’s era-relevant appointments, with the vintage-style truss rod heel adjuster and truss rod nut, while a set of vintage-style tuning machines are situated at the headstock.
SOUND OF THE ‘60S
Mirroring the Fender Classic Series 1960s Telecaster’s sound with its playability and aesthetics, it has been fitted with a pair of specially voiced, vintage-style Alnico single-coil pickups. Control over these is given with the usual compliment of: a 3-way pickups selector switch, and Master Volume and Master Tone knobs.
Free Deluxe Gigbag
Always worth a mention when included, the Fender Classic Series '60s Telecaster comes supplied with a deluxe gigbag; ensuring the safety of your new prized possession. Travelling to gigs, rehearsals/practice, the studio, and home is made easier with the shoulder straps and handle, and there are also a couple of pockets for storing all the extra necessities.
