Fender Telecaster Blonde All Original, 1968

Fender Telecaster Blonde All Original, 1968

The Fender Telecaster is arguably one of the most significant advances in the development of electric guitars; not the very first, but the first successfully mass produced solidbody electric. This is a Fender Telecaster Blonde in the classic Blonde finish, built during 1968 in Fullerton and in very good original condition, with its original hard shell case. It’s fairly rare to see examples of these in this good, original condition.

Fender Telecaster Bass Blonde, 1972

Fender Telecaster Bass Blonde, 1972

The Fender Telecaster Bass launched in the surprisingly late year of 1968, though its appearance is very much like the original, revolutionary 1951 Precision Bass. From a modern perspective, there isn’t a lot to the Fender Telecaster Bass.

SOLD‼ Fender Telecaster ‘Don’ Blonde, 1968

SOLD‼ Fender Telecaster 'Don' Blonde, 1968

Built during 1968, we’ve nicknamed this beautiful aged-blonde Fender Telecaster ‘Don’ in reference to the letters once affixed to the top. Over time, the blonde finish darkened to a lovely butterscotch tone and when the letters were removed, the lighter finish remained. The Fender Telecaster has proven to be an excellent illustration of design fitting its purpose, and for nearly 75 years this model has been built and sold with really only minor variations.

Fender Telecaster Bass Blonde, 1972 --*NO LONGER AVAILABLE*

The Fender Telecaster Bass launched in the surprisingly late year of 1968, though its appearance is very much like the original, revolutionary 1951 Precision Bass. From a modern perspective, there isn’t a lot to the Fender Telecaster Bass. It is basically an ash or alder slab body with a one-piece maple neck bolted to it, a bridge, and from 1968 to 1972 a single coil pickup with volume and tone controls.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Custom Classic Stratocaster, Standard Neck 2005/2013

❌SOLD❌  Fender Custom Classic Stratocaster, Standard Neck 2005/2013

This Fender Custom Classic Stratocaster is a bit of an odd duck but exhibits one of Leo Fender’s original design intentions around the bolt-on neck. When putting together what became the Telecaster as an instrument to be manufactured, he realized that the neck joints (usually dovetails or tenons) found on virtually all guitars required significant effort and cost to create, assemble and service.

❌SOLD❌  Fender CS Stratocaster / AM Std Neck Blonde, 2005

This blonde Fender CS Stratocaster from 2005 has an American Standard Neck from 2013 and is from the Fender Custom Shop in Corona, California. One of the obvious benefits of a bolt-on neck design is that either the neck or body can be changed if damage occurred.
