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!

2007 Fender Deluxe Ash Telecaster  SOLD

When I’m trying out electric guitars, one of the first things I pay attention to is the acoustic sound, because it’s the basis of pretty much everything else tonal.

This 2007 Fender Deluxe Ash Telecaster has it all. It’s clear and crisp with clear articulation between notes on chords, all the high end sparkle you’d expect from a Telecaster, and a full sound all the way down to the lowest tones.

Here is a 2011 Warmoth Custom Telecaster.

The Telecaster has been in production in one form or another (including as Broadcaster and Esquire, and ‘nocaster’) since early 1950. Part of the brilliance of its design is its adapability. It can easily be customized in a myriad of ways and still work as a playable and reliable instrument. This adaptability has led to a large market for third party manufacturers.
