1964 fender telecaster. great deal on this instrument, for sale by owner. selling some rare gems from my vast collection. this instrument was purchased from a world class instrument collector for $24,000 in the height of the instrument value range. this is a 1964 fender telecaster in original factory see through blond finish, over an ash wood body, with a very rare maple cap neck. the neck stamp shows a december 1964 build date. the maple cap (no skunk stripe on the rear of the neck) was done for an optional maple board in the 60's on jazzes, precisions, teles and strats. they simply produced a neck as if it were to receive a rosewood fingerboard, then placed a maple fingerboard on after the truss rod was installed - hence- no need for a rout on the rear and the skunk stripe walnut laminate! the original hard shell case and the chrome bridge cover is included for the buyer.
this instrument is very lightweight (of course) being from this era, and it plays and sounds great. as you can see from the many pictures, it is really cool and has the 60's mojo vibe like no other period of fender history. this guitar is a rare entity and this is a great opportunity to put this tele in your hands and on stage plugged into our rig! this instrument is sold as is and there are no returns, so please ask any questions prior to purchasing. it is very nice and anyone would be proud to play. the pickups , pots and electronics appear to be all original and the pot codes are showing the 50th week of 1964. the neck plate shows the code l619xx. i have taken every effort to describe and photograph every part of this instrument for your inspection.
