1959 Fender Telecaster - Blond
1959 Fender Telecaster - Blond incl. orig. brown tolex Case"
Rare 1959 Fender Telecaster - blond in great condition for its age. The guitar is all original, except the wiring has been changed to modern style, so the neck pick-up can be used in its full tonal range and a professional refret (med-Jumbos 6105) which is a real improvement. This Tele is a rare version with a "top-loader bridge", where the strings are fed thru the bridge-plate instead of going thru the body. Great sound, nice attack! Actuall they only made them in 1958, this is a very early Tele with a neckdate of 1-59, both pos are stamped 304.8.20 = 20th week of 1958. so its propably one of the last toploaders they made. White single-ply pickguard, nice and big c-shape neck with some nice flames, lightweight and comfortable to play. Comes incl. orig. brown tolex case w/orange interieur and bridge "ash-trey".
