Fender American Vintage II 63 Telecaster - Surf Green with Hard Shell Case



Fender American Vintage II 1963 Telecaster: A Meticulous Take on a Classic Tele

The Fender American Vintage II 1963 Telecaster is a remarkably accurate take on a classic solid-body electric guitar. This model 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.

Period-Correct Construction and Hardware

The American Vintage II 1963 Telecaster is a spot-on re-creation of a Fender classic. This electric guitar features a solid alder body, a lightweight wood that offers an incredibly balanced acoustic tone, yielding uniform quantities of lows, mids, and highs, and boasts a gorgeous gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish. The 1963 Tele's nickel/chrome hardware includes a 3-barrel bridge with steel saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, and knurled flat-top knobs. Year-specific '63 Pure Vintage pickups, a period-correct neck shape, and vintage-radius fingerboard round out the American Vintage II 1963 Telecaster's classic appointments.

Authentic Vintage Sound

When you plug the Fender American Vintage II 1963 Telecaster into your favorite amplifier, you'll be transported straight back to '63. This solid-body electric guitar's Pure Vintage '63 Telecaster single-coil pickups churn out the tight lows and balanced mids you'd expect from an old-school Tele. Its bridge pickup twangs like it's nobody's business. The American Vintage II 1963 Tele comes complete with master volume and tone knobs, plus a 3-way pickup selector switch.

Effortless Playability

When we first picked up the American Vintage II 1963 Telecaster here at Sweetwater, we were blown away by its effortless playability. The '63 Tele's 1-piece, "C"-shaped maple neck boasts Goldilocks dimensions — not too big, not too small — for an eminently comfortable playing experience. You also get a round-lam rosewood fingerboard with a vintage 7.25-inch radius and 21 vintage-tall frets. The neck features a natural color, and it's finished with eye-catching nitrocellulose lacquer.
