Fender American Original 60s Telecaster – Lake Placid Blue


Fender American Original 60s Telecaster – Lake Placid Blue

One of the most versatile guitars ever created, the
Telecaster is easily at home in any genre, thanks
to its flexible sound, alluring style and smooth
playing feel. In 1960, we offered rosewood as
the standard fingerboard wood and launched
the Telecaster Custom, an elegant model with
a double-bound body and 3-ply pickguard. The
American Original ‘60s Telecaster combines
period-accurate sound and style from this
electrifying decade with modern, fast-playing feel
and pickup switching.
The Pure Vintage ’64 single-coil Telecaster
pickups are as period-correct as possible, from
the enamel-coated coil wire to the cloth-covered
output wires, fiber bobbins and alnico 5 magnets.
The bridge pickup’s copper shielding plate adds
some zing to your tone, while the pole pieces
are staggered for balanced volume between the
strings. The mid-‘60s “C”-shaped neck profile
gracefully fills the fret hand, while the 9.5”-radius
round-lam rosewood fingerboard will feel familiar
to any player. Other authentic touches include

vintage-tall frets, original-era body radii, vintage-
style hardware—including three steel saddles—

vintage-style hardshell case and a lacquer finish
that not only lets the wood “breathe” naturally
with resonant tone, it also wears in a distinctively
appealing way.
