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 in insane clean condition with extremely minor wear. It even comes with its original rare gig bag, cable and ashtray. It has a very nice/ “soft 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. The guitar sounds so incredibly good and the pickups are very strong.
Everything remains structurally sound with no cracks, breaks or any repairs. This guitar has some early features because it was a transition year where Fender changed few things. It has round button string tree that later changes this year in 56 to “butterfly” clip. It also has chrome plated brass course knurl rounded top design knobs, that also changed in 56 to a fine knurl flat top pot-metal knob. This guitar is a truly amazing piece and one of the cleanest we ever had. A great historical /collector’s guitar as well as a top sounding piece!
Pickups and the electronics/wiring remain untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickups. All original and correct.
