Fender Telecaster Classic 69 Thinline Electric Guitar
1998 Fender Telecaster Custom Classic FANTASIA GREEN
Fender Custom Shop Tele in a RARE ONE OFF FANTASIA GREEN. C shaped Flamed maple neck with 22 medium jumbo frets, premium rosewood fingerboard, and an Ash body with a “Thin” nitrocellulose finish. I upgraded the pickups to Joe Barden Danny Gatton pickups, the original Fender Custom Shop Pickups are in the case and shown in the photos. I also changed out the pickguard to a single ply black guard and I change the knobs to Q Part chrome Celtic Weave knobs. The original 3 ply white guard and knobs are in the case and shown in the photos. The guitar is in a 10 condition, plays and sounds fantastic. The only issue is a screw hole repair inside the control cavity. When I opened it up to have the Joe Barden Pickups installed the screw were so close to the sides of the cavity wall that the wood was splitting so the guitar tech suggested we reinforce the sides with the dowels shown in the pictures. You can’t see anything from the outside of the cavity. The neck plate is tarnishing and the custom shop logo on the back of the headstock is missing a small piece (see the photo). Here are the Guitar specs from Fender -
