A drop dead gorgeous 1971 Fender Telecaster in the very rare Ocean Turquoise Metallic finish! Like the majority of the Fender Custom Colors, Ocean Turquoise Metallic was an automotive paint used on Mercury cars in the mid 1960s, and was sparsely used by Fender from 1965 until its discontinuation in 1971. As with all blue finishes with a clear coat, the guitar has gracefully aged into an unbelievable shade of blue-green with an incredible patina! The dark rosewood fretboard with pearl dots compliments the body beautifully, and features original frets in fair condition with some wear to the cowboy chord area. The neck profile is an enjoyable medium C shape, with a gently worn back profile. Two strong pickups give this guitar a powerful voice, with a 7.10K in the bridge position, and an 8.36K in the neck position. The high E tuner is slightly bent, but still functions as intended!
It weighs in at 7 lbs 9 oz, and comes in original Fender hardshell case.
