|Comments|| Leo Fender’s Telecaster has been an enduring aspect of popular music for over sixty years. In that time, many Telecasters have been built and many have been modified – part of the genius of the design is in its adaptability, customizability, extreme durability and reliability.
This Refinished 1966 Fender Telecaster has most of its stock parts, with just the nut, tone capacitor and pickguard being changed. However, the body was originally blonde, was refinished in black, and at some other point much of the back finish was removed.
So, the finish isn’t great but it plays and sounds just like a vintage telecaster!
