1957 Fender Telecaster

1957 Fender Telecaster - This 1957 Fender Telecaster embodies the timeless spirit of classic guitars with a touch of modern upgrades. Featuring its original maple neck, pots, switch, wiring harness, capacitor, hardware screws, and bridge plate, this Telecaster carries the authentic essence of a vintage instrument. The switch cap has been replaced, and the pickguard has been upgraded, giving it a unique character. Notable upgrades include the original bridge pickup rewound by Lindy Fralin , renowned for its exceptional tone quality. The neck pickup has been professionally repaired and repotted by Fralin, estimated to be from a vintage 1962/63 model, adding to its vintage appeal. Moreover, both pickups have been cryogenically frozen to 300 degrees below zero, enhancing their stability and tonal consistency. Although the guitar body was refinished in the late 1970s, it retains its classic Telecaster charm. Included with this guitar is a non-original tweed hardshell case, providing sturdy protection for this iconic instrument. Whether you're a collector, player, or enthusiast, this vintage Telecaster offers a blend of history, craftsmanship, and upgraded performance that's sure to inspire your musical journey. The guitar pictured is the exact instrument that is for sale.
