What we say:

At A Glance:

This Fender American Vintage II 1963 Telecaster Rosewood Fingerboard in Surf Green, is a USA-built homage to a true Fender classic. Pulling together an incredible range of vintage specs Fender has created a guitar that throws it right back to the early 60s. A year-specific neck carve and pickup set, a round 7.25" radius fingerboard, clay dot inlays, it's all here to give you that iconic feel in your hands. All built with Fender American quality this is a vintage guitar that with the reliability of a modern performance instrument.

Features We Love:

1963 Neck Shape

One of the biggest factors in our enjoyment of a guitar is the neck shape and Fender has kept things true to vintage specs with this era-specific neck carve. Slimmer than the earlier '50s carves this 1963 "C" shape is easy to handle and won't leave you feeling fatigued after long playing sessions.

Pure Vintage Pickups

Not just looking to capture the feel of a 60's Tele, Fender has gone with their Pure Vintage single coils wound specifically for that 1963 spec. Generally considered hotter than pickups from earlier years, these pickups still retain the iconic twang and crystal clarity that the Telecaster is known for but with a bit more versatility.

Vintage Spec, Modern Quality

Fender has recreated as much of that vintage vibe as they can with this model from the year-specific neck shape and pickups, to the 7.25" radius round-lam fingerboard, and even clay dot inlays. But it doesn't have any of the problems that can sometimes be associated with vintage guitars thanks to the always stellar Fender USA quality. You can pick this guitar up and know you have an instrument you can trust to deliver a great tone and a fantastic playing experience.

Who Is It For?
