A desirable vintage of the versatile classic with its improved neck and fingerboard.
1964 was a monumental year for popular music and a pivotal year for the Telecaster, too, as seen in the Fender American Vintage '64 Telecaster Electric Guitar. The thicker maple necks of the '50s and early '60s now gave way to a more rounded C-shaped profile, this time topped with a round-laminated rosewood fingerboard with larger pearl dot inlays. Other vintage-accurate touches include a lightweight alder body (ash on White Blonde model), staggered bridge pickup pole magnets, threaded steel "barrel" bridge saddles, three-ply white pickguard with eight holes, top-hat switch tip, flat-top knurled chrome control knobs and more.
The American Vintage Series has long presented some of Fender's best selling guitars (their early-'80s introduction, in fact, was one of the first signs that Fender was "back" as the CBS era ended). Today, Fender has boldly cleared the slate to make way for a fresh American Vintage series with new features, new specs and the most meticulous level of vintage accuracy yet. Rather than just replacing the previous models with different ones, they've completely and comprehensively re-imagined the entire vintage-reissue concept-restoring original tooling dies, voicing new pickups, reformulating vintage colors and more-based on actual vintage guitars. Includes case.

Comments about Fender American Vintage '64 Telecaster Electric Guitar:
You know how you're sitting there thinking "Oh yeah, the telecaster, weren't they pink with paisley for little girls?"
Well take that thought out of your head, and kick it in the turdcutter so hard that your white shoes will go good with khakis. Because this thing is BOSS maaaaaan.
First off, I scored the Lake Placid Blue model. PFFFFT forget about it, best shade of blue ever. Only the colorblind would argue that statement.
This guitars neck is perfect... I mean perfect. It's like a misbehaving heathen of a brat, you'll just want to put your hand around this neck ALL THE TIME.
And the sound... No joke... I plugged this into my amp, and accidently dropped the guitar down the staircase.... and a major record label gave me a 8 album, multi-million buck deal. Talk about pressure.
So let me be clear on this.... if you don't buy this tele.... just punch yourself square in the face and try to knock some sense in you. If high fives were nickels, all the fivers being slammed your way would pay this guitar off in 30 seconds.
Stop hmming and hawing like a chump, click on that buy button, and become a FRIGGIN LEGEND MAAAAAAAAAN.
