The Fender American Vintage '64 Telecaster Electric Guitar represents the pivotal year of 1964 that helped define popular music and Tele as we know it today. The more rounded C-shaped Maple neck replaced the thicker maple necks of the ’50s and early ’60s, and were topped with a round-laminated rosewood fingerboard with larger pearl dot inlays.
This incredible accurate ’64 Telecaster vintage reissue features a lightweight alder body (ash on White Blonde model), period correct staggered bridge pickup pole magnets, threaded steel ‘barrel’ bridge saddles, three-ply white pickguard with eight holes, top-hat switch tip, flat-top knurled chrome control knobs and more.

With key features and pivotal design elements spanning the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s, American Vintage series instruments delve deep into Fender’s roots—expertly preserving an innovative U.S. guitar-making legacy and vividly demonstrating like never before that Fender not only knows where it’s going, but also remembers where it came from.
The American Vintage Series has long presented some of Fender’s best selling guitars. Today, Fender has boldly cleared the slate to make way for a fresh American Vintage series with new features, new specs and the most meticulous level of vintage accuracy yet. Rather than just replacing the previous models with different ones, Fender completely and comprehensively re-imagined the entire vintage-reissue concept—restoring original tooling dies, voicing new pickups, reformulating vintage colors and more—based on actual vintage guitars they tracked down to make sure it was done right. Fender did the work, and it shows, because there’s pure tonal magic in each American Vintage instrument.
