Here is a vintage 1967 Fender Telecaster Custom electric guitar. This particular example, serial number 213868, features an immensely attractive double-bound sunburst body, and a neck with a Brazilian rosewood fingerboard also decorated with a transitional decal. This 100% all original specimen is in very nice cosmetic condition, and would be a fine fit for players and collectors alike. While the Sunburst finish was standard on most other Fender models, it was never such for the Telecaster and Esquire, so take advantage of this very reasonable offer, because at a wholesale price like this, it will be near impossible to find one for less!

This beautiful example was produced during the transition between pre-CBS methods and those more regularly employed during the late-60’s CBS-era. As mentioned, it features a transitional logo decal, as well as: a nitrocellulose lacquer finished neck, a polyurethane finished body, cloth wiring, gray bobbin pickups, F-tuner tuning machines, and a Brazilian rosewood with neck pearloid dot inlays.
With significant fading to the top of the body, as can easily be seen when contrasted with the still intact 3-tone Sunburst finish on the back, and the highly weather-checked finish on the face of the headstock, this guitar is far from perfect. However, it is still quite attractive and pleasantly presentable, with the subtle mojo that attracts both players and collectors as earlier discussed. With no breaks, no cracks, no modifications, nor repairs, this intact example is a true survivor, and a fantastic investment for those who prefer to enjoy their money.
Medium weight, with surprising ringing sustain, this Tele Custom is a real treasure to play. The neck profile is medium-sized with an extremely comfortable fingerboard. The frets exhibits expected wear, though they still retain a profile conducive to string-bending and easy playability. Both pickups are evenly balanced, and the Tele has twang for days.
The guitar includes a non-original vinyl case and the original chrome “ash tray” bridge cover.
