Fender American Vintage II 1963 Telecaster 6-String Electric Guitar (Right Handed, Surf Green)

The Fender American Vintage II 1963 Telecaster presents a remarkably accurate take on the revolutionary designs that altered the course of musical history. Built with period-accurate bodies, necks, and hardware, premium finishes, and meticulously voiced, year-specific pickups, each instrument captures the essence of authentic Fender craftsmanship and tone.

Reproduces the Quintessential Tone

By 1963, a new combination of tonewoods married the punch and focus of alder with the warmth added by a round-lam rosewood fingerboard, enhancing the signature Tele twang. Featuring Pure Vintage 1963 Telecaster pickups, a triple threaded-steel saddle bridge, and a comfortable C shape maple neck, the American Vintage II 1963 Telecaster reproduces the quintessential tone and feel of the original. Characteristic of production in 1963, this Tele features clay dots (narrow-spaced at the 12th fret), a 7.25-inch radius fingerboard, and is offered in three colors.

Direct Descendants of The Original Fenders

The instruments in the American Vintage II series are direct descendants of the original Fenders. It is designed for players with a fine appreciation for vintage Fender tone and feel and is built with unmatched quality, down to the last screw. These are Fender electrics in their purest form Fender American Vintage II, the stuff of legends.

Gloss Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish

Nitrocellulose lacquer, used on the 1950s and 1960s Fender instruments, is a premium finish that reveals the instrument’s true tonal character.

 Alder Body and Fingerboard

Alder has a well-balanced tone with beefy mids and a robust low-end. The 7.25-inch radius fingerboard provides the comfortable playing feel of a vintage instrument, while vintage-tall frets make it easier to bend notes without fretting out.

1963 C Shape Neck

In vintage years, the shape and thickness of Fender guitar necks varied tremendously. The American Vintage II Series offers a variety of authentic neck profiles from Fender’s past.

Pure Vintage 1963 Telecaster Pickups

Specially voiced to reproduce the authentic sound and performance of individual model years, Pure Vintage pickups are constructed just like pickups from Fender’s golden years. Materials include cloth-covered wire, fiber bobbins, and alnico magnets.

Vintage-Style Hardware

From the bridge to the string tree and tuning machines, every piece of American Vintage II hardware is manufactured to look, sound, and function just like it did on the originals. Much of the American Vintage II hardware is still manufactured on the original 1950s and 1960s Fender factory machines.
