While Fender continues to innovate upon their timeless flagship models, nothing compares to the playability, look, and feel of Fender’s instruments from the 1950’s, and this modified 1956 Fender Telecaster is a testament to that. While the electronics have been replaced over the course of its 65 year journey, this guitar has retained its original neck and body giving it the unmistakable voice and tone that has made the Telecaster a worldwide icon of Country, Rock n Roll, and beyond. So while some parts may have been changed over the years, this guitar is still a 50’s Tele at its core. We encourage customers to contact us directly for an in-hand description of this guitar. This guitar was born amongst Fender’s mid-century magic, and this Telecaster is built to prosper for decades to come.
