1965 FenderTelecaster – Transparent Red

This 1965 Fender Telecaster is shown here in its very rare and original Transparent Red finish! Like other models of the time, Transparent Red seems to have only been available to the UK market, however it was supposedly used on lap steels as well. This one features a heavy patina and an ambered green guard, which pairs beautifully with the worn Red finish and dark Rosewood board. This guitar also sports a spaghetti logo, which tops off this all-around amazing transition piece!
