OVERVIEW

A throwback to the Summer of '69 with classic Fender design and updated electronics.

1967’s Summer of Love influenced mainstream fashions worldwide, and Fender was on board with its Blue Flower and Paisley Telecasters. Oddly enough, the guitars became more popular with rockabilly and country western players (they were adopted most famously by Tele master James Burton) rather than the flower children that helped inspire them. These guitars have earned a special place in Fender history, and the Fender Custom Shop Vintage Custom 1968 Blue Flower and Paisley Tele models are faithful recreations of those original instruments.

The two-piece select alder body wears an NOS lacquer finish with WLS undercoat. The rift-sawn maple neck has a ’60s-style “oval C” profile, topped by a round-lam rift-sawn maple fingerboard with 7.25”-9.5” vintage compound radius and 21 medium vintage frets for a comfortable feel up and down. Hand-wound ’67 Tele pickups meet the exact spec for that year, with a three-way switch and modern Tele wiring. Additional features include an eight-hole clear polyurethane pickguard, ’67 Tele bridge with threaded steel saddles, Schaller “F” tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree. A deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity are also included.
