We present an original and super rare 1963 pre-CBS Fender Custom Telecaster in 3-Tone Sunburst finish.
This guitar looks so gorgeous with the cream bindings. It has a very nice medium C-shape maple neck with a fantastic dark rosewood fingerboard. The weight is extremely light on this beautiful alder body. It provides an authentic early 60’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 and balanced.
The Telecaster is all original except a professional vintage refret. Overall it’s in great shape with some nicks and dings, light belt buckle wear, beautiful finish checking and other cosmetic wear. Everything remains structurally sound with no cracks, breaks or any repairs.
Pickups and electronics/wiring are untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickups. All original and correct.
Comes with its original brown Fender hardshell case. Latches and handle in working order.
