– Condition: 9/10
– Fret wear: Very light in first position on high strings
– Any wear of note: None of note. In really amazing shape. All marks, dents, scratches etc are part of Fender’s Road Worn finishing process. It’s all original except for the custom pickguard that is currently on the guitar.
Our thoughts on this guitar…
– This tele feels truly incredible. The neck is so comfortable and feels like it’s been played for years and years. A nice and natural worn in feel. And the guitar really rings acoustically and plugged in. Just a really fun guitar to play. Includes original hard-shell case. Guitar weighs 7lb 7oz.
JOE STRUMMER TELECASTER®
Model #: 0143900796
As front man and main songwriter of legendary punk band, The Clash, Joe Strummer created a fiery, passion-filled brand of up-tempo punk-rock that catapulted the band into rock and roll history. Strummer’s rebellious musical sensibilities injected the band’s songs with the lightning-in-a-bottle political urgency of the era.
To capture the vibe of Joe’s well-worn ’66 model, the Joe Strummer Telecaster® features a Road Worn® lacquer-finished Alder body, a mid-‘60s “C”-shape maple neck with 7.25” radius Rosewood fingerboard and a set of custom-voiced Joe Strummer Telecaster® pickups. Other features include a vintage-style 6-saddle Telecaster® bridge, era-correct 3-ply parchment pickguard, vintage-style tuning machines and a custom neck plate, all featuring Fender’s Road Worn® finish to complete the look.
