I had a really great 1967 Fender Tele last year. It played and sounded as good as any Tele I’ve had. I always wished I had another one like it. Well, it’s here!
This is a 1967 Fender Tele which is the twin brother of the earlier Tele: it has the same neck stamp/date( 3APR67B), pot codes within 2 weeks(137 6636), and identical neck depth – .87/1st, .92/12th. Body is stamped “ES,” which was Fender code for a special-order guitar.
The overall condition is very clean. Has a highly figured dark Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard with no grooves, back of neck is near mint, frets are original, body has some minor nicks and scratches, with a few spots down to the wood on the top. Has a new Fender control switch tip.
For the sake of disclosure, there are some superficial cracks at the sides around the neck pocket, which are purely cosmetic in nature. The neck pickup cover has a small ding in the center.
The neck PUP is outstanding on this guitar, just like with the earlier Tele. This guitar looks really great with the Blonde finish, white parchment pickguard, and dark fretboard!
Includes a newer Fender USA molded hard shell case.
Here’s your chance to get the twin of an outstanding vintage Tele!
