Fender American Vintage II 1963 Telecaster Electric Guitar - Crimson Red Transparent

The Fender American Vintage II series pays homage to the iconic designs that shaped the history of music. With authentic features such as period-accurate bodies, necks, and hardware, premium finishes, and carefully crafted pickups that capture the essence of Fender craftsmanship and tone, these instruments are a true representation of Fender's legacy.

One of the notable models in the American Vintage II series is the 1963 Telecaster. This Telecaster features a combination of tonewoods with an alder body that provides punch and focus, and a round-lam rosewood fingerboard that adds warmth to the signature Tele twang. Equipped with Pure Vintage '63 Telecaster pickups, a triple threaded-steel saddle bridge, and a comfortable "C"-shaped maple neck, this Telecaster reproduces the quintessential tone and feel of the original 1963 model. It also features clay dots with narrow spacing at the 12th fret, a 7.25" radius fingerboard, and is available in three colors: Crimson Red Transparent over mahogany, 3-Color Sunburst, or Surf Green over alder.

The American Vintage II series instruments are true descendants of the original Fenders, designed for players who appreciate vintage Fender tone and feel. With unmatched quality in every detail, these guitars are a pure representation of Fender's legacy and are sure to be treasured by musicians and collectors alike. The Fender American Vintage II series is the stuff of legends, capturing the spirit and soul of Fender's iconic guitars.
