Another pre-CBS refin from the master himself and this one is just as good as the best of them...
Sorry, this item was sold out.
Another testament to the astounding work that Clive Brown does when he refinishes guitars. This guitar is a body only refinish and I’m sure you’ll agree that its a fantastic job, matching the neck so well and showcasing the ash beautifully. The relicing too is subtle with paint chips and dinks in the places you’d expect giving the finish an authentic feel. Clive’s choice of colour too is so spot on, replicating the fade of the clear coat as its exposed to UV light, evident when you see under the pickguard.
This is a fairly early 1964 Tele that still has a lot of ‘63 features such as the clay dots and the wide dot spacing at the 12th fret. It is also a nice light weight and easy to play coming in at just 3.21Kg
The neck has not been touched and has worn to a smooth satin finish. The fretboard shows small signs of wear but is in great shape as are the frets. The hardware shows signs of corrosion though not too serious. The pickguard is in fine shape.
The electronics are correct although the string on the black bottom, lead pickup’s bobbin has been replaced which may mean it has been rewound or some other work carried out on it. It has also been wax potted (except on the top) and the guitar has been wired to post 1967 scheme.
Both pickups are equally strong and have all the lovely full bite you would expect on a classic, pre-CBS Tele.
The guitar comes with a hardshell case.
This guitar has all the power and grace you look for in a good telecaster. Neck pickup is smooth and the bridge is biting without taking your head off. Guitars like this one make you question why you’d ever need another.
These pre-CBS guitars do live up to the hype and this is your chance to pick one up that won’t break the bank…
