⚌Reduced‼  Fender Telecaster Natural Finish, 1983

The 1983 Fender Telecaster Natural Finish seen here is from the closing days of CBS ownership of Fender and the end of production in Fullerton, California. This 1983 example of the Fender Telecaster Natural is in overall good condition, with a few non-original components. The original pickups were replaced with Fender Noiseless models, and the tuners have been swapped for modern Fender tuners.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Telecaster Blonde, 1972

❌SOLD❌ Fender Telecaster Blonde, 1972

This Fender Telecaster Blonde is built during 1972 in Fullerton, California, is in good working order and with all original parts and case. For many years, this guitar had the ‘ashtray’ bridge cover in place, and much of the original, lighter blonde colour tone is visible where the cover extended past the bridge. The rest of the finish has naturally yellowed to a very nice butterscotch tone.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Telecaster Maple Neck Black, 1978

❌SOLD❌ Fender Telecaster Maple Neck Black, 1978

The Fender Telecaster Maple Neck has been built without interruption since 1951, though models dating to 1950 used the name ‘Broadcaster’. The concept is simple yet was revolutionary, immediately appealed to countless guitarists and prompted many advances in musical technology. Here we’re looking at a Fender Telecaster Maple Neck with a black Polyester finish, worn enough through use to have exposed blonde and clear sealer finish undercoats. At the time, if Fender had orders for colours not in stock, they would re-finish a body. For example, this guitar’s body may well have originally been Blonde, and over-sprayed black before assembly and shipment.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Telecaster Rosewood Fingerboard Blonde, 1976

❌SOLD❌ Fender Telecaster Rosewood Fingerboard Blonde, 1976

The Fender Telecaster Rosewood Fingerboard models appeared in September of 1959 as Fender introduced this wood to attract Gibson players. This was originally a flat-bottomed ‘Slab’ fingerboard glued to the flat top of the Maple neck, and the truss rod mounted from a channel underneath the fingerboard. In July 1962, Fender introduced new production processes to bond a thin layer of Rosewood to the curved top of a Maple neck blank, and this process is still used today.
