1968 Fender Telecaster Sunburst

Custom colour Sunburst early 1968 Fender Telecaster so still retains cloth wire and nitro finish. Lovely feeling classic pre CBS C shape neck with rosewood board. This one is also still wired pre 1967 wiring so pre selected bass sound on neck pickup, neck pickup with tone control and bridge pickup with tone making up the 3 switch settings. The pre selected bass capacitor is a replacement and the guitar looks to have had a rotary switch fitted at some point as there is a hole in the original control plate plus some slight widening of the cavity in that position. The original switch is back in with an old replacement control plate with the original in the case. Other than that everything is present and correct. The finger board has some grooving in the first few positions but the guitar plays effortlessly and it sounds killer. I like the mid 60’s Telecasters with rosewood boards as they have a more mellow warm tone not reached by their bright maple board cousins. Yes Sunburst is a custom colour for the Telecaster and not often seen,

Comes with its original Fender tolex case
