Here's a very cool road-worn Fender American Special Telecaster in beautiful Olympic White from the 60th Anniversary series! Built at the Corona factory in California in 2011, this model commemorates 60 years of the Telecaster model. A host of modern features make it easy to play while retaining the iconic looks of Fender's first ever model.
Comfy neck has a nice C-shape with rolled in fretboard edges, bend-friendly 22 medium jumbo frets, non-sticky satin finish, truss-rod adjuster at the headstock and high quality tuners. Coupled with a resonant alder body, this guitar has strong and full-bodied acoustic tone. There is plenty of surface wear all around the body - this guitar definitely had an active stage life. Sticker "shadows" and dings here and there - but no structural damage or modifications of any kind. The only non-original part is the brand new tortoiseshell pickguard, that provides a striking contrast to the Olympic White body.
Original pickups have overwound design, which means more power and more output - any tube amp will be happily overdriven by these single-coils. The tone cleans up really well via the volume knob and the famous "Greasebucket" tone circuit allows you to roll-off the treble without adding any low-end mud to the sound. Just wondeful! All wiring is original and works well, inner-cavities are factory-shielded and grounded to eliminate any interference.
Classic Telecaster "ashtray" bridge design allows for strong strings-to-body coupling and vibration transmission, while the steel saddles add great attack and twang to the tone.
This instrument received a full professional setup with deep body clean, neck deep clean and full electronics check. Restringed with D'addario 10-46 nickel-plated steel strings.
This guitar will be shipped around UK and EU with Parcelforce or UPS couriers, safely packed into a sturdy guitar cardboard box. 24h courier service provided to UK customers. Worldwide shipping provided as well.

Please note that although we put our heart and soul and also all our knowledge into every single guitar we sell, a setup is a personal preference. However, we try to get the best playability out of every guitar and set them up so you can play both rhythm and lead. We also pull them all apart to clean and check every single component and replace all unreliable parts with new ones, from dodgy pots to the whole wiring, tuners, string trees, nuts and etc. All the work done is described in detail in the listing. We make sure that every guitar we sell is problem free and take full responsibility for the accuracy of our listing descriptions.
All photographs are done by a professional photographer and processed on a calibrated monitor. Some colours might look slightly different on your monitor, but we will always put the official Fender colour name in the listing description, so please study pictures of other guitars with the same colour if you are unsure. We focus on finding great quality guitars and making them reliable and inspiring to play.
