1960 Fender Custom Telecaster
Posted on November 09 2020
Fender introduced a new version of their popular Telecaster model in the Summer of 1959: the Custom Telecaster. Not much had changed except for the addition of body binding and sunburst finish. This Custom Telecaster, owned by a friend, is from 1960.
I'm always a vintage Fender guitar buyer but I'm especially looking for Telecaster Custom guitars with Sunburst finish and edge binding. You can contact me here to sell a vintage Fender guitar.

This vintage Fender Telecaster has been wonderfully preserved and still retains its original case. The sunburst finish is ever so slightly imperfect which is evidence of its handmade nature. The neck is constructed of a slab of Rosewood over Maple with no need for a skunk stripe on the back. The slab fretboard only lasted a few years until Fender opted for a veneer of Rosewood instead.
This 1960 Fender Custom Telecaster is in very nice original condition and highly collectible. Do you have a late 1950s or 1960s Fender Custom Telecaster for sale?
