1974 Fender Telecaster Blonde (consignment)  SOLD

The Fender Telecaster is probably the most successful musical instrument design in history. It’s brilliantly simple yet highly versatile, extremely durable, and the fact that it’s easy to configure and customize has made it one of the most produced and copied guitar concepts.

This example of the 1978 Fender Telecaster Thinline Natural is in good playing order, with some normal play wear and dings. At some point two holes were made on either side of the bridge and these have been plugged. There is a moderate amount of fretwear and some finish wear along the treble side of the fingerboard; this guitar has been played!

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!
