This guitar was originally purchased from us by a local collector due to its rarity and individually interesting selection of woods. The story behind this Redwood Tele will attract any player or collector who enjoys working with re used or reclaimed and more woods. The story of this pre owned 2011 Tele and the idea behind its design and construction is set out below using Fenders words. Its in really wonderful condition, however the case does have some noticeable fading in certain places and please note its description of condition below. Please contact us for more information

Here we have a real treat. Hailing from the 60th anniversary of the telecaster in 2011, the TeleBration series guitars were a set of beautifully thought out Teles made in 12 styles that brought together the history of the electric guitar that started a revolution. The Old Growth Redwood tele was one of our favourites at the time and continues to excite us years later. This particular one has been well looked after and has one or two minor marks on the body. The Redwood is light and resonant but does mark up easily. The top of the hard case has faded quite a bit but the guitar does come with some original swing tags. A really cool piece that should excite players an collectors alike.
Fender's Old-Growth Redwood Telecaster is hewn from reclaimed centuries-old Northern California redwood that has aged into a fantastically strong and resonant tonewood. Salvaged from various buildings and other structures, the wood bears the historical knots, nail holes, bruises and other badges of more than a century of well-seasoned use, giving an individual stamp and unique appeal and character to each guitar. The result is a highly distinctive take on the venerable Telecaster.
