    Product Description

    The Fender American Original 60s Tele captures the spirit of the worlds first popular solid body electric guitar. By the 60s, the Tele was given a stunning Rosewood board to mellow out the top-end and the double-bound body acts a touch of class that you can't get from anything else.

    The Pure Vintage '64 pickups compliment the hot tones that you'd expect. The modern fretboard radius combined with vintage mid-60s C shaped neck makes for a modern, playable guitar.

    The American Original Range

    The American Original range focus on decades rather specific years - which could get quite confusing at times. 

    These guitars have also got a Modern fretboard radius and modern switching. This is helpful because though the old switching systems were period-correct, they weren’t always the most useful to have on-board. 

    Nitro Finish

    One of the best things about the American Original guitars is their Nitro-Cellulose finish which is done to ensure that these instruments resonate like the Fender guitars of old. The Nitro finish is thinner than a modern gloss finish and this allows the wood to breathe and resonate. 

    The nitro finish will also mean the guitar will age beautifully. So your instrument will grow old with you and simply sound better with age as the wood and finish settles.

    Mr Chris James5th Jul 2020

    The best guitar I have ever played. The sound is phenomenal, bell-like cleans and breaks up beautifully with a little gain. It's also the most beautiful guitar, the metallic sparkle is subtle, but gives the finish an amazing depth - from all angles and in all lights it's simply unreal! Could not be happier. Looking forward to seeing how the finish ages now! It's worth mentioning that I've opted to swap the original steel saddles out for compensated brass saddles (Gotoh) as the string spacing and intonation isn't great - vintage quirks! It will depend on your playing style as to whether this is a problem!
