This highly distinctive Telecaster is hewn from salvaged pine that was more than a century old. This amazing instrument is further distinguished by a hand-rubbed Whitewash oil finish. It features a '52 Hot Rod Telecaster neck (9.5" fretboard radius, medium-jumbo frets), hand-rubbed oil finish, and Vintage '62 pickups.
On its 1951 introduction, the Telecaster was a revolutionary instrument that would usher in whole new eras of musical innovation and excitement. Sixty years later, in 2011, it is an archetypal electric guitar with a long and storied history. The rich history of Fender guitars begins with the Telecaster, and Fender is celebrating its 60th anniversary all year with 12 very special "Tele-bration" models that stay inside the Telecaster's famously elegant lines while offering the finest and most unusual takes on the instrument's past, present and future.
