The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌ SOLD ❌ 1994 Fender Custom Shop Telecaster 1963 NOS Candy Apple Red


Instrument Categories:

The Fender Custom Shop Telecaster 1963 NOS is a reproduction of one of the classic American workhorse guitars, after it gained a rosewood fingerboard. The NOS designation means New Old Stock, and refers to the finish – as if you’d gone back in time, bought the guitar, and brought it back without it aging in any way. Finishes do degrade over time, and the ‘Closet Classic’ versions show natural finish breakdown and oxidization.

This Custom Shop example dates to 1994 and reproduces, for the most part, the Telecaster 1963 with rosewood fingerboard and custom Candy Apple Red finish. The frets are larger than would have been the used in 1963 and suit modern player’s tastes and the reality of fret wear. The frets here have light to moderate wear, and the guitar plays well and cleanly. At this point, necks profiles started to become less bulky and more C-shaped compared to 1950’s models, and to my taste are the most comfortable. The finish has experienced a few dings and marks, with the most noticeable a circular chip on the back. The original brown hardshell case is included.
