Fender American Original '60s Telecaster, Lake Placid Blue

One of the most versatile guitars ever created.

Fender American Original '60s Telecaster, Lake Placid Blue

Model #: 0110140802



One of the most versatile guitars ever created, the Telecaster is easily at home in any genre, thanks to its flexible sound, alluring style and smooth playing feel. In 1960, we offered rosewood as the standard fingerboard wood and launched the Telecaster Custom, an elegant model with a double-bound body and 3-ply pickguard. The American Original ‘60s Telecaster combines period-accurate sound and style from this electrifying decade with modern, fast-playing feel and pickup switching.


Features

  •     Alder body with lacquer finish
  •     Two Pure Vintage '64 single-coil Telecaster pickups
  •     Mid-60s "C"-shaped neck profile; 9.5"-radius fingerboard
  •     Vintage-style hardware; Telecaster bridge with three steel saddles
  •     Includes vintage-style hardshell case



LACQUER FINISH

The nitrocellulose lacquer finish not only lets the body breathe with its true tonal character, it also ages and wears in a distinctively personal way.


PURE VINTAGE ‘64 PICKUPS

American Original instruments feature specially voiced pickups crafted to reproduce the authentic sound and performance of individual model years.


“MID-’60s C” NECK SHAPE

This Telecaster features a “C”-shaped neck profile delivered straight from the mid-1960s to your hands. Remarkably comfortable, it suits any playing style.


VINTAGE-ACCURATE BODY AND NECK RADII

Original-era fans can rest assured every curve and line of the body and neck are accurate to the historic originals.


VINTAGE-CORRECT HARDWARE

From the bridge to the string tree and tuning machines, every piece of hardware is just like the original.


FINGERBOARD & FRETS


This 9.5”-radius fingerboard is slightly flatter than a vintage-style 7.25” radius, providing a comfortable fret-hand feel. Vintage-tall frets make it easier to bend notes without fretting out.
