Fender American Vintage II 1963 Telecaster RW Surf Green Front
The Fender American Vintage II 1963 Telecaster RW Surf Green is all about the coveted Telecaster version as it was built in 1963.

Overview of the Fender American Vintage II 1963 Telecaster RW Surf Green

The American Vintage II 1963 Telecaster RW Surf Green represents the revised design of the classic Telecaster as it was introduced back in 1963. New tonewood combinations and improved construction methods created a new, distinct Tele sound that achieved absolute cult status on numerous recordings of blues, rock and country. The instrument from the American Vintage II collection is built according to historical specifications at the Fender Corona Facility in California and of course comes including case and certificate. 

Alder Tele body

In contrast to the ash body of the Fifties Tele, the Telecaster models of the early sixties used alder as one of the body woods. This tonewood is still considered the most widely used classic among Fender tonewoods and is prized for its unique tonal qualities. The body is finished with a three-ply Pickguard and a tasteful Surf Green nitrocellulose finish.


Pure Vintage '63 Single Coils

The two Pure Vintage '63 Single Coils of the Fender American Vintage II Telecaster are also based on original components of the original and produce the classic changeable voice of the Sixties Tele. Thus, played in the bridge position, the result is a wiry sound with a certain amount of twang and growl, while the neck position contributes its vocal character. For pickup selection, there is a three-position switch that selects both pickups either individually or together.

3-Saddle Tele Bridge with steel tailpieces.

The hardware equipment also received some welcome upgrades in the early sixties. With the Fender Pure Vintage Tele Bridge, the three classic brass tailpieces were replaced with robust and resonant steel tailpieces, both improving resonance transmission and allowing each string to be better positioned on its rider. On the headstock, "Fender Deluxe" tuners provide robust tunings and the classic Tele look.
