Very nice, original custom colour Candy Apple Red Custom Telecaster in Leo Fender's very own favourite shade...
This is a superb example of an original Custom Colour 1969 Fender Telecaster in Candy Apple Red. It includes the correct case (with replaced latches) and correct ashtray cover.
Nice fat sounding 60’s original Tele pickups with lots of bite that do not sound shrill as some can. It has a few dings and dongs here and there, mainly on the edges as you can see by the pictures but overall it is a really nice custom colour Tele that has aged well and the CAR finish has not faded too much either. This again is something you do not see all the time.
Action is great frets have plenty of meat still left and is very playable. Nice medium C shape neck and weight is a pleasant 3.44Kg
Neck lacquer is unfaded and body has only slight fade as you can see by the pics with the pickguard removed. Pickguard is the pearloid back type as you would expect, all pots date to 1966 which is normal, there is a mix of cloth and plastic covered wiring and all solder joints appear intact and un broken except one on the volume pot. One extra string tree has been added as you can see from the pics.
Very difficult to tell, but we think the back of the neck may have had a very light, clear overspray many years ago, most of which seems to have rubbed off now.
A rare, cool piece that just looks so classy don’t you think..?
