A versatile classic with modern playability
The American Original '60s Telecaster is easily at home in any genre, thanks to its flexible sound, alluring style and smooth playing feel. In 1960, rosewood became the standard fretboard wood on the Tele. That same year, Fender launched the Telecaster Custom, an elegant model with a double-bound body and 3-ply pickguard.
The American Original '60s Telecaster builds on that design with Pure Vintage ’64 single-coil pickups, featuring period-accurate details like enamel-coated coil wire, cloth-covered output wires, fiber bobbins and alnico 5 magnets. The bridge pickup’s copper shielding plate adds zing to your tone while staggered pole pieces maintain a balanced volume between the strings. The mid-'60s C-shaped neck profile gracefully fills the fret hand; the 9.5"-radius round-laminated rosewood fingerboard will feel familiar to any player.
Other authentic touches include vintage-tall frets, original-era body radii, vintage-style hardware—including three steel saddles—a vintage-style hardshell case and a lacquer finish that not only lets the wood breathe naturally with resonant tone, it also wears in a distinctively appealing way.
The American Original ’60s Telecaster borrows the best from that electrifying decade. Its modern, fast-playing feel and pickup switching will keep it current for decades to come.
