Sold! Fender Telecaster Blonde Refinish, 1964

Sold!  Fender Telecaster Blonde Refinish, 1964

This Fender Telecaster Blonde Refinish dates largely to 1964, with a 1966 neck pickup and a newer pickguard of the correct white/black/white layering. Long ago, the body was stripped and refinished blonde.   The neck has some lacquer sprayed over the original finish, but this is quite worn and much of the wood is exposed – which makes it very comfortable.  The original decal is in good condition; at the time, Fender applied the decals over the lacquer finish, and many have not worn well.

Sold!  Fender Telecaster Blonde Maple Neck, 1973

The Fender Telecaster blonde is arguably one of the most significant musical instruments ever produced, and certainly the most successful. Produced without major changes for closing in on 70 years, the Telecaster and its original translucent blonde finish has been used for nearly every genre of music.  The first production examples of what became the Telecaster and its Esquire version appeared in 1950. Since then, wood selections, pickup construction and hardware have evolved somewhat, but the basic design is unchanged.

❌Sold❌ Fender Telecaster Bass Blonde, 1970

This instrument is all original, used as intended, 1970 model Fender Telecaster Bass in translucent blonde finish – the same kind of finish as on early Telecasters. Yes, this was white when new. This particular bass was clearly used for many years in smoky environments, before second hand smoke legislation cleaned the air in bars and clubs across the country.
