1966 Fender Telecaster

Serial # 142198. 3-March-66 Neck Date, pots dated 66-18, no legible pickup dates. Body was professionally refinished in the late 1990's, neck was refinished as well, and the headstock face was oversprayed. All parts are original to the guitar, however the volume pot was replaced (original is provided with the guitar).

With the exception of its very nicely done finish-work, this 1966 Fender Tele is all that and then some. A wonderful and lively feeling guitar, with excellent pickups and a light weight (7.2 Lbs), this rosewood board Tele has lots to offer anyone looking for a really nice, mostly pre-CBS, on a tighter budget.

Grey-bottom bridge pickup, black-bottom neck pickup, original bridge with threaded saddles and original ashtray cover; ash body with early-style string ferrules, F-neck plate, Kluson tuners and bone nut.

Set-up by us, the guitar plays very nicely. Frets are level and show little wear.
