This Tele is one bad mama jama. Fender Custom Shop's 1963 NOS Telecaster is a limited edition guitar made for 2020, and features all the hallmarks of a vintage '63 Tele. Its NOS (New Old Stock) designation means you get a guitar that appears as if you bought it brand-new in 1963, with an all-lacquer Fiesta Red finish and no relic job whatsoever. It features the time-honored single-coil twang of a vintage Telecaster as well, thanks to a pair of hand-wound '63 Tele pickups, delivering unmatched tonal authenticity. The guitar also brings fantastic playability and authentic in-hand aura, with a 9.5" radius AAA rosewood fingerboard over an absolutely stunning AA flame maple neck with a '60s Style Oval "C" profile. Plus, it has a lightweight feel, at just over seven and a half pounds, thanks to two-piece Alder body that was specifically sorted for light weight. This guitar is minty fresh and has very minimal wear on it. Like, almost no wear whatsoever.
As with all the guitars that come through Eastside Music Supply, it received the full treatment from our luthiers, making sure the frets are level and the setup is on point. This guitar is ready to GO and will ship ready to plug and play in it's included Fender Custom Shop Hardshell case, with all the case candy your heart could desire.
