The Fender American Vintage II 1963 Telecaster is a remarkably accurate take of a classic solidbody electric guitar. The '63 Tele includes a balanced-sounding solid alder body, while its year-specific Pure Vintage '63 Telecaster single-coil pickups yield jangly, smooth, sparkling tones with a distinct twangy bite. You'll appreciate the effortless playability of this guitar's 1-piece, "C"-shaped maple neck and vintage-radius, round-lam rosewood fingerboard. The American Vintage II 1963 Tele is chock-full of period-correct appointments, including knurled flat-top knobs, a 3-barrel bridge, vintage-style tuning machines, and a head-turning nitrocellulose lacquer finish on the body and neck. If you want to own a piece of Fender history, then you'll be tremendously pleased by the American Vintage II 1963 Telecaster — it's a dream come true for '60s-era Tele aficionados.
