1956 Fender Telecaster
1956 Fender Telecaster in very good condition. Neck and body dated 3-56 in pencil. All original with the exception of a fret job and new bone nut, tone and volume pot, saddles. The neck finish is 100% original and straight. The body was oversprayed in clear nitro many many years ago and it has aged to a more yellow color very much like the blackguard finishes. The pickups are original, they have been out of the guitar and the leads slightly extended. This guitar belonged to a well known touring and studio musician, so you can be sure it sounds and plays great. This is not a collectors guitar, it is simply and incredible playing and sounding guitar. It is light weight at 6.9 pounds and resonant. The neck is a perfect rounded handful of a shape with medium size frets that we just gave a grind a polish. The bridge pickup is hot and clear and just the way a tele should be. This guitar is best experienced in person. Includes newer hard case.
