Fender American Vintage II 1963 Tele Rosewood Surf Green
Special Offer

By 1963, a new combination of tonewoods married the punch and focus of alder with the warmth added by a round-lam rosewood fingerboard, enhancing the signature Tele® twang. Featuring Pure Vintage ‘63 Telecaster® pickups, triple threaded-steel saddle bridge and a comfortable “C”-shape maple neck, the American Vintage II 1963 Telecaster reproduces the quintessential tone and feel of the original. Characteristic of production in 1963, this Tele features clay dots (narrow-spaced at the 12th fret), a 7.25” radius fingerboard fingerboard and is offered in three colors: Crimson Red Transparent over mahogany and 3-Color Sunburst or Surf Green over alder.

  • Alder or Mahogany Body
  • Gloss Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish
  • Pure Vintage '63 Single-Coil Tele® pickups
  • “C”-Shaped Neck Profile
  • Pure Vintage 3-Saddle Tele® with Threaded Steel Barrel Saddles
  • Pure Vintage Single-Line “Fender Deluxe” Tuners
  • Hardshell Case Included
 

Gloss Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish

Nitrocellulose lacquer, as used on ‘50s and ‘60’s Fender instruments, is a premium finish that reveals the instrument’s true tonal character.

Alder or Mahogany Body

Alder has a well-balanced tone with beefy mids and a robust low-end. Mahogany is a warm sounding wood with smooth mids and sweet highs.

7.25” Radius Round-laminated Rosewood Fingerboard

The 7.25”-radius fingerboard provides the comfortable playing feel of a vintage instrument, while vintage-tall frets make it easier to bend notes without fretting out.

1963 “C”-Shape Neck

In vintage years, the shape and thickness of Fender guitar necks varied tremendously. The American Vintage II Series offers a variety of authentic neck profiles from Fender’s past.

Pure Vintage ‘63 Telecaster Pickups

Specially voiced to reproduce the authentic sound and performance of individual model years, Pure Vintage pickups are constructed just like pickups from Fender’s golden years. Materials include cloth-covered wire, fiber bobbins and alnico magnets.

Vintage-style Hardware

From the bridge to the string tree and tuning machines, every piece of American Vintage II hardware is manufactured to look, sound and function just like it did on the originals. Much of the American Vintage II hardware is still manufactured on the original ‘50s and ‘60s era Fender factory machines.
