1969 Fender Telecaster original pink paisley, excellent condition with original case.

It is summer 1969. The number one song on your radio is "Let The Sun Shine In". Pontiac launches the TransAm. A man takes one small step on the moon. A half million kids party at Woodstock. And Fender ships this pink paisley Telecaster to a music store in rural Illinois.Today, 48 years later, this same guitar is as original as the day Fender made it. Other than a few checks in the finish (and far less than most) the guitar is in beautiful condition, with its vivid pink barely faded. The guitar's neck is dated 3JUN69B ("3" for Telecaster, "JUN69" for month and year, and "B" for standard-size neck radius). Every part, including tuners, pots, pick-ups, and everything else is 100% original to the guitar. And of course it's a Telecaster. Which means it plays and sounds like only a vintage Tele can. Made for just two short years, all-original 1960's pink paisley Fenders are today very difficult to find, and are sought by collectors the world over.

Plus, not only is the guitar complete with its correct black Fender hardcase, it comes with an array of vintage swag: the original 46-page full line 1969 color Fender catalog, original 1969 "Fender Loving Care" button, original strings in their Fender sleeves, three 1968 & 1969 Fender price lists, and even an original and iconic Mel Bay 1969 guitar book.

From the Illinois Collection.
