1963 FENDER TELECASTER NECK WITH String Tree & Tuner Bushings..(No Tuners Included)
This Neck came on 1963 Olympic White Pre CBS Olympic White Custom Color Fender Tele With A Rare Red Mahogany Body
This 1 owner Olympic White Telecaster, from where this Nov 63 Tele Neck came from....has been played it's whole life in various Bands out in California threw out the 1960's, 70's & 80's and played on many ...many song recordings in the Studio
This Tele was rented out to Bands by a couple different Recording Stuido's to Guitar Players that needed a Tone Rocket Tele that just recorded great and had the Bell Tone we all crave for over 35 years and is used on more recordings and songs on the radio than anyone can count. When I got this guitar many years ago, and I still own it as my own. There was eagles inlay put on up and down the neck. The only thing was the dot markers that are on the 3,5,7,9,12,15,17,19 and 21st fret were replaced with inlay birds. I decided the bird inlays had to go! So this Neck had a Later 1960's Fender Rose Wood Fretboard from a Salvage Neck I had for years in my stash where the headstock had a UN-re-parable headstock break
I had this 63 neck and used it on many of my personal Telecaster builds over the last 10 years or more.. The NECK PLAYS GREAT.. SOUNDS GREAT...SETUPSA GREAT!!!!!

Fret board Re Placed.. ALL DONE Professionally. Had other tuners on at one time, Neck has been oversprayed at one time, original finish is under it. With the original Kluson Tuners on, most of that is covered up. The decal has been replaced and looks killer.
Not a everyday find, Vintage is all but gone. Not coming back.. Every whole guitar and their related parts that gets sold and shipped outside the USA... None come back into the United States.. Your not buying to much from Italy, or England are you? A 1963 Fender Pre CBS Tele is $30,000 or more... and not many to choose from..
