Description

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!

One of the very prettiest Teles I've ever seen. The Ocean Turquoise color is sublime. I cut my teeth on a 1972 Tele Custom and this one feels like home. It's very well made with perfect fit and finish. The tone is all vintage and the playability is ideal. Don't miss this one...
 
This guitar plays like a dream. It feels like the old ones and sounds like them too.
