Fender Custom Shop

collapse expand iconDescription

This Fender Custom Shop '60s Rosewood Telecaster Closet Classic electric guitar recreates the iconic all-rosewood Telecaster first produced in 1968 as a special run made for artists like George Harrison, Steve Cropper and other luminaries. It was a regular production run guitar from 1969 through 1972. More understated in voice than the typical ash/alder/maple Tele, it's a guitar that quickly became legendary. A chambered body with a maple block keeps it light, while adding sustain, and the hand-wound Twisted Tele pickups supply just the right amount of attitude. This is one you'll treasure.
