Offered for your consideration is this exceptional vintage Fender Telecaster, serial number 200890 which was built in 1967. Except for newer frets, nut and a bit of solder, this guitar is all original. If you are looking for the best playing and sounding investment-grade vintage Tele you can get, please read on!
This guitar has a neck date of October, 1967 and the pots date to that huge 1966 batch. It has an Alder body with it's original well-faded Olympic White finish. The Maple neck has a medium 'C' shape with depth measurements of .836" at the first fret increasing to .925" at the twelfth fret. It weighs just 7 pounds, 3 ounces and is nicely balanced. It has newer era-appropriate frets and nut. The original "black bottom" pickups are installed. The guitar sports some non-original soldering, as the guitar's "mud circuit" wiring for the neck pickup has been reinstalled to bring the guitar's electronics back to it's original factory setup. Otherwise, this lovely Tele is all original and unmolested.
Despite the many incredible boutique Telecaster-style instruments I play, there is still nothing that can compare with a real vintage Fender Tele. The old wood and electronics just speak to you. Check out the brief sound sample included below. This guitar has the original "dark circuit" back in place for the neck pickup, but the middle and bridge positions sound super to my old ears. It has been setup superbly and plays with little to no effort.
This guitar has been well treated over the years, but shows a bit of honest wear as indicated in the included photos. It comes in it's original Fender / G&G tolex case which is in very good condition.
This is a great electric guitar and a great investment that is sure to make any Tele aficionado ecstatic. Make it yours!
