Topped off with superb-sounding custom shop pickups and custom wiring, the Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater "Sweet '60s" '63 Telecaster is a music time machine par excellence.

The Closet Classic treatment creates a unique look

Like all Fender Custom Shop guitars, this Sweetwater "Sweet '60s" '63 Telecaster is the very image of an original '63 Tele. In fact, without sneaking a look at the neck heel stamps, you'd be hard-pressed to distinguish the Custom Shop Sweetwater "Sweet '60s" '63 Tele from the real deal! A period-correct nitrocellulose lacquer finish gives the guitar a timeless, classic look, while vintage hardware adds an extra air of authenticity. Nitro finishes - standard back in the '60s - are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to "breathe." Nitro finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful; they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities.

Custom Shop pickups serve up period-correct Tele twang

The Fender Custom Shop's Sweetwater "Sweet '60s" '63 Telecaster is loaded with a pair of Fender Custom Shop single-coil pickups that deliver all the legendary Tele chunk, twang, and bite of an original mid-'60s Tele. So if an authentic '60s Tele sound is your thing, the 1963 Tele is the cost-effective way to get it.

It's all about playing feel

The Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater "Sweet '60s" '63 Telecaster looks vintage and plays like butter. If you savor the feel of a played-in guitar with perfect fretwork and with spot-on intonation, we've got your axe right here! the '63 sports 6105 medium jumbo frets and a 9.5" radius so you can shred and bend up high without fear of fretting out. It's the best of old and new!

Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater "Sweet '60s" '63 Telecaster Features:
  • Classic look and vibe of a gently used Tele
