    I can’t find a reason not to buy this awesome Fender American Original 60s Telecaster in Fiesta Red. Double bound? Check. Nitro? Check. 9.5” radius full C neck? Check. Great pickups? Check. Plays great? Check. Lightweight? Check.


    HELP!!!

    non-brass saddles. does it include theash tray pick up cover? I had to zoom in on the second pic because I thought the sticker said 60% telecaster instead of 60's

    So it is a 60 repro right? Not a real 60 vintage one. I had a 62 Reissue nice guitars nothing special in the Tele world.

    Does it provide anything that some other guitar you already own can't provide? Will your musical life be improved in a way that's needed?

    These are the new Americans Original series. 60s style double bound nitro-finished Tele, but with a 9.5” radius. That’s the draw.

    Buy it. A year from now you will have another beautiful guitar, and you won’t miss the money.
