This is such a cool and unique color that's 100% in keeping with the spirit of the early '60s Fender guitars, their embrace of car culture (the custom colors came from car colors of the day), youthfulness, and pop culture.
Why We Love This
The LTD '61 Tele embodies all that we love about rosewood fingerboard Telecasters. From the dark rosewood board w/clay dots, to the comfy Oval C neck carve, its ability to cover pretty much any genre, to the classic bright, articulate tone...this model leaves us wanting nothing. Hence why Tele's have stood the test of time and are as powerful and inspiring as they were when first manufactured in the early 50s.
Fender's Custom Shop brilliantly captures all the nuances the sought-after vintage guitars embody. Having been lucky to have had our hands on a lot of incredible vintage examples, we can say without hesitation that these Custom Shop guitars are the real deal, as good as a boutique build, and damned close to capturing the magic of the old ones.
