Fender - 1996 American Telecaster w/B-Bender - Sunburst

$1,100.00

SOLD. Call us for options.

This used Fender American Tele with B-Bender is one of the original 50th anniversary models produced and still has the sticker on the back of the headstock. Here with an Ash body, it weighs in at a hefty 9 lb., 14 oz., though some of that comes from the B-Bender bending system - a mechanism that lets you bend the b-string from the upper strap button, a handy feature especially for country tunes. It has a one-piece Maple neck and fingerboard with 22 frets, a 25 1/2" scale length, and a slimmer 1 13/32" nut width.

Loaded with a pair of Lindy Fralin SP-43 8.5K single-coil pickups, this guitar really sings - crystal clear cleans and enough oomph to really wail when overdriven. This is one helluva player that both looks and sounds great. It was made in 1996 and is still in Excellent condition, even after nearly 20 years, with only some minor playwear. This Fender American Tele with B-Bender isn't a model that's seen very often - especially not one in such stellar condition - so check it out before it's gone. Includes original hardshell case.
