1956 Fender Telecaster – Blond
We present an all original and 100% complete 1956 Fender Telecaster in Blond finish. Made in Fullerton California.
Overall, this pre- CBS Fender Telecaster is excellent condition with nicks, dings and other cosmetic play wear. It’s complete along with its original ashtray, strap and polish cloth. All paper documentation is included that tells the full history of this piece. We are the third owner of this beautiful pre-CBS Telecaster.
It has a very nice “V”shape maple neck with good original frets and the weight is extremely light on this 1-piece ash-body. Single Line Kluson Deluxe tuners are like new and turn perfectly. This Beauty just provides an authentic 50’s Telecaster tone with its original old-style wiring along with original cloth wires. In the control cavity there is original tape where you can see the name of the Fender employee that made the electronic wiring at the Fullerton factory 13th of November 1956. The guitar sounds so incredibly good and the pickups are very strong, resonant and well balanced. This guitar is a truly amazing piece. A great historical /collector’s guitar as well as a top sounding piece!
Everything remains structurally sound with no cracks, breaks or any repairs. Pickups and the electronics/wiring remain untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickups. All original and correct.
