Fender Limited Edition American Vintage ’64 Telecaster Fiesta Red 1/22
1964 was a monumental year for popular music and a pivotal year for the Telecaster, too, as seen in the American Vintage ’64 Telecaster.
The thicker maple necks of the ’50s and early ’60s now gave way to a more rounded C-shaped profile, this time topped with a round-laminated rosewood fingerboard with larger pearl dot inlays. Other vintageaccurate touches include a lightweight alder body, staggered bridge pickup pole magnets, threaded steel “barrel” bridge saddles, threeply white pickguard with eight holes, top-hat switch tip, flat-top knurled chrome control knobs and more.
Now available in beautiful Fiesta Red as a 2014-only custom color option.
Only 22 of this Limited Edition guitar were made.
