2001 FENDER CLASSIC SERIES 50s TELECASTER +HSC U Neck White Blonde Tele 59561
You're looking at a really cool 2001 Fender Classic Series 50s Telecaster in transparent White Blonde finish. This is only the third year of production for the Classic Series, so the neck is more chunky--closer to Fender "U" shape than a "C"shape. Excellent playing condition with playing wear making it a natural relic. The frets are in pretty good shape with only some minimal grooves.
Vintage ashtray bridge looks like it was upgraded to nickel, and saddles changed to brass. Pickguard changed to 3-ply tortoise. This near 20-year-old guitar has aged woods and superior build compared to new Mexi-made Fenders. By most accounts, early Mexican made are on par with late Japanese made Fenders. Weight is 8 pounds, 2 ounces. Comes with aftermarket hard case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!

For guitarists who must have the instrument’s original-era tone, look and feel, the Classic Series ’50s Telecaster epitomizes the guitar in the decade of its debut, with unmistakable early Tele® style and snap.

All setups are done by our in-house luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
