1968 FenderTelecaster – Blond (C Neck)

We are proud to show off this 1968 Fender Telecaster in its original Blond finish! What makes this Blond Tele so unique is its rare C-neck. Telecasters came standard with a B-width neck (1 ⅝” at the nut), and any other width was a custom order. The C neck has a thicker nut width of 1 ¾” and is very comfortable to play. It fits nicely in the palm with the larger nut size. You can recognize a guitar with a C-width neck easily from its stamp. This guitar’s stamp reads “ 3 SEP 68 C”. Other features on this Tele include a transition logo and maple cap, with some fine checking throughout the maple on the fretboard, neck, and headstock.

Overall Condition: 9, a few tiny marks and some checking, but a near-perfect piece!
