Fender
With an illustrious history dating back to 1946, Fender has touched and transformed music worldwide and in nearly every genre: rock 'n' roll, country and western, jazz, rhythm and blues and many others. Everyone from beginners and hobbyists to the world's most acclaimed artists and performers have used Fender instruments and amps, and legendary Fender instruments such as the Telecaster® and Stratocaster® guitars and Precision® and Jazz® bass guitars are universally acclaimed as design classics.In the 1940s, southern California inventor Leo Fender realized that he could improve on the amplified hollow-body instruments of the day by using an innovative and rather simple solid-body electric guitar design. Further, he realized that he could streamline the process of building them.In 1951 he introduced a prototype solid-body instrument that would eventually be called the Telecaster® guitar. The Tele®, as it was often called then and still is today, was the first solid-body Spanish-style electric guitar to be commercially mass-produced.That same year, Fender introduced a revolutionary new invention - the Precision Bass guitar. It was played like a guitar and had frets so that it could be played with "precision," and it could be amplified, thus liberating bassists from unwieldy and increasingly difficult-to-hear acoustic basses.These two historic instruments laid the foundation for a new kind of group and a revolution in popular music - what we know today as the modern rock combo. As opposed to the "big bands" of the era, electric Fender instruments made it possible for smaller groups of musicians to get together and be heard.The Stratocaster first appeared in 1954, incorporating many design innovations based on feedback from professional musicians, Fender staff and Leo Fender himself. Its third single-coil pickup offered more tonal possibilities, its sleekly contoured body made it more comfortable, and its double cutaway design made access to upper registers much easier.Most important, however, was the addition of the new Fender vibrato (or "tremolo") bridge, an innovation originally intended to let guitarists bend strings, thus achieving the pedal steel-like sound so popular among country music artists of the day.Nobody could have foreseen then how the Stratocaster would go on to revolutionize popular music. Essentially unchanged since its 1954 debut, it is the most popular and influential electric guitar ever, and players at all levels and in all genres continue to rely on its sound, playability and versatility to this day.Leo Fender himself remained an immensely creative force over the next decade, introducing many classic instrument and amplifier designs, including the Jazz Bass® guitar, the Jaguar® and Jazzmaster® guitars and the Twin Reverb® amplifier.

    Fender Guitars Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar
    SOLD

    Out of stock

    The pickups in the 70's Fender Telecaster Customs are legendary for their great tone. Utilizing CuNiFe threaded magnets, this guitar gets a great clean and clear sound in the neck position and has a strong and not brittle sounding bridge. If you love Teles but think they're too bright, this may be the guitar for you, it is not dark sounding, but it lacks the harsh ice-picky tones some Teles produce.

    This 1973 Tele Custom, in Mocha finish, is in rare condition with very little wear for it's age. This beauty has a significantly thinner neck than its ancestors from the 1950's. In all, it's a fun vintage guitar that offers a unique take on the classic Fender sound!

    Fender Guitars 62 Tele Custom Electric Guitar
    SOLD

    Out of stock

    Description from Fender's website: The double-bound alder body and multi-ply pickguard that dressed up the '62 Telecaster guitar distinguished it from its Butterscotch predecessor. And rosewood, originally introduced for cosmetic reasons because maple was prone to showing wear, quickly grew in popularity with the warmth it added to the classic Telecaster tone. In the spirit of the original, the American Vintage ‘62 Telecaster Custom guitar has a C-shaped maple neck with a 7.25”-radius rosewood fingerboard. It also features a pair of '62 Custom Tele single-coil pickups, a vintage Tele bridge with threaded steel saddles, and the original Tele circuit with three-position switch. Our thoughts: This Ocean Turquoise '62 Tele is a gorgeous guitar in dead mint condition, don't miss it!
