1969 Fender Telecaster with Bigsby (consignment) SOLD

1969 Fender Telecaster with Bigsby (consignment) SOLD

The Telecaster is not only the first succesful (wildly!) solidbody electric guitar, but it’s also been in uninterrupted production the longest.

There have been some variations over the years, and this 1969 Fender Telecaster with Bigsby is a prime example. The Bigsby unit itself is the oldest successful vibrato unit made, and as we can see here it’s been available in a branded form to manufacturers. This unit has the ‘F’ logo on the body casting. To go with this, the body does not have the string ferrules on the back; there is a custom pickup plate and a Jazzmaster-style bridge is used. This one even has the original bridge cover!

Fender Telecaster 1952 Reissue With Vibramate and Bigsby (used) SOLD

We received a number of Vibramate kits and Bigsby units, and decided to install the V5-TEV kit on this 1952 Telecaster Reissue. It went on in minutes, just a little longer than changing the strings, and doesn’t alter the guitar at all.
