This guitar is a replica of the now rare and highly collectable Rosewood Telecaster, which was released in the late '60s.
Played by George Harrison on the song "Let it Be" and on Beatle's Apple Records Rooftop concert, this guitar has and continues to be the fancy of many fans and guitar players. Now Fender is giving the privileged few a chance to own an accurate replica of this special instrument.
I am not a Telecaster fan, but I have to admit this is one very cool looking guitar! Fender Custom Shop meticulously replicated all the important details, including the guitar's most distinctive feature - the prominent use of rosewood.
The guitar's rosewood body closely follows the original Telecaster shape. The body has a natural satin finish which gives the guitar its earthy appeal. A 3-ply black pickguard is used so that it would not distract from the great looking Rosewood grains.
The guitar's bolt-on neck follows the Rosewood theme, carved into a '60s era Oval "C" profile. It has a 21-fret rosewood fingerboard completing the guitar's rosewood theme. Measurements include a scale length of 25.5", 9.5" fretboard radius, and 1.675" nut width.
Fender Custom Shop equipped the guitar with a pair of Custom Shop "Twisted" Tele Single-Coil pickups. Basic controls are provided including a 3-way pickup selector, a master volume knob and a master tone knob. The guitar features the Greasebucket Tone Circuit, which lets you roll off the highs without adding bass as you adjust the tone knob.
Other features of the guitar include 3-Saddle vintage-style strings-through-body bridge with threaded saddles and vintage F stamped tuning machines, all finished in nickel/chrome.
The MSRP for the 2013 Limited Rosewood Telecaster is $7000. You can visit Fender for more information.
