A wonderful year recreated in exquisite detail.

One of them presented here is a fabulous example of a 1959 Telecaster with all of the mojo you'd expect. It features a relic finish that offers the appearance of a well-traveled instrument, but one that is 100% functional. This Tele comes with a sweet combination of desirable specs including a 9.5 in. radius fretboard and hand-wound Telecaster pickups with modern Tele wiring. Includes hardshell case and 30th anniversary appointments.
