Classic Series 60s Telecaster Olympic White 6-String Electric Guitar

Expert Review

The Telecaster has enjoyed quite a run since its 1950 debut, playing a significant role in the music of a variety of notable players, from blues legends such as Albert Collins and Muddy Waters to rock stars like Keith Richards and Andy Summers to country icons Waylon Jennings and Buck Owens. Many of these players would do amazing things with this instrument in the 1960s and to that end, Fender has created their 60s Telecaster as part of their Classic Series of guitars.

The 60s Telecaster has an alder body that produces a wide range of tones, and the guitar’s rosewood fretboard also aids in producing a smooth feel and warm sound. The vintage appearance of this guitar is a huge part of this guitars appeal with aged knobs and pickup switch are designed to specifically replicate the classic look of the 60s. A distinctive body build and headstock instantly brings to mind timeless photos and performance footage most guitarists grew up idolizing.Two vintage-style single-coil pickups in the neck and bridge positions drive the overall tone of this axe, which sounds just as good clean as it does overdriven. And the three-ply mint green pick guard provides a seriously beautiful aesthetic to this guitar, truly driving home the classic look that Fender is aiming for with this model.Rating: 4.25/5
